SUMMER SELECTION
  • Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser

An eighteen-year-old girl without money or connections ventures forth from her small town in search of a better life and the American Dream when she moves to Chicago. The chronicle of Carrie Meeber’s rise from obscurity to fame—and the effects of her progress on the men who use her and are used in turn—aroused a storm of controversy and debate upon its debut in 1900. Considered the premier example of American naturalism, Dreiser’s non-judgmental portrait of a heroine who violates the contemporary moral code and realistic characters in this remarkable first novel has deeply influenced such key writers as Willilam Faulkner and F. Scott Fitzgerald.
