A best-selling writer from Chicago, Edna Ferber had great popular appeal throughout the world. She published nine plays, two autobiographies, eleven short story collections, and thirteen novels, including Showboat, Giant, and So Big - winner of the Pulitzer Prize - the unforgettable story of Selina Peake Dejong, her marriage, widowhood, eventual success as a truck farmer, and of her son, Dirk. In So Big, Ferber simultaneously created a vivid picture of turn-of-the-century Chicago and dealt with the (still) contemporary issues of poverty, Americanization, family tensions, sexism, and success.
