So big is Edna Ferber's Pulitzer Prize winning novel. It is a book about dreams and realities; about choosing between money and artist success. It questions what really makes a person happy, what drives us, and why; all the while confronting poverty, sexism, and societal pressures. A masterpiece of modern fiction.
"With all its flaws and crudities it has the completeness, and finality, that grips and exalts and convinces. By virtue of these qualities So Big is a masterpiece." --Literary Review
"A thoughtful book, clean and strong, dramatic at times, interesting always, clear-sighted, sympathetic, a novel to read and remember." -- The New York Times
