About the Book

This classic literary critique of turn-of-the-century capitalism in the United States reveals Norris's powerful story of an obsessed trader intent on cornering the wheat market and the consequences of his unchecked greed.

The Pit was part two of a planned three part trilogy, The Epic of the Wheat (The Octopus was part one), however Norris died before completing the third novel.
