This book brings together for the first time, and in one convenient volume, published and unpublished memoirs about the American novelist Theodore Dreiser. The recollections of Dreiser’s contemporaries bring to the fore the writer’s politics, personal life, and literary reception. Donald Pizer is one of the world’s leading scholars of Dreiser and of naturalism.
“Touching on the entire spectrum of the author’s controversial life and career, Theodore Dreiser Recalled in a must-read not only for Dreiserians but for anyone interested in a multiperspectival portrayal of a watershed figure in US realism and naturalism.”
