The financier
Theodore Dreiser

About the Book

This new novel by Mr. Dreiser is a drama of the lust for wealth and almost, one might say - the lust for love. In the form of fiction the story shows a vivid panorama of American life in its more material aspects. It is a great book in its scope and power - broader and deeper than anything which Mr. Dreiser has done. It is more vital than "Sister Carrie," more vigorous than "Jennie Gerhardt."

In its highness, its insight into large phases of the evolution of American life, its portrayal of the fight for gold and power and the love of women, this novel is certain to be ranked as one of the great examples of modern fiction.
