Product Details

Praise

“A first novel of rare precision and real merit . . . a rich poorhouse indeed.”—Newsweek
 

 “Turning on a narrow plot of ground, it achieves the rarity of bounded, native truth, and comes forth as microcosm.”—Commonweal
 
“Brilliant . . . Here is the conflict of real ideas; of real personalities; here is a work of intellectual imagination and great charity. The Poorhouse Fair is a work of art.”The New York Times Book Review
