A rich, varied, and brilliant collection of some of the most-loved stories from one of America’s favorite writers, chosen by the author herself, Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Ferber.At eighteen, Edna Ferber was the only female reporter on a big, tough, midwestern daily, covering everything from fires and accidents, to divorces and murders. It was here that she learned how to write and spin the raw material from her own life into numerous fascinating stories, novels, and plays. Increasing in number over the course of a long and glorious career, One Basket collects these beloved stories that, like her novels, present Ferber’s brilliant cross-section of American life.
Edna Ferber was an American novelist, short story writer and playwright. Her bestselling novels were especially popular and included the Pulitzer Prize-winning So Big, Show Boat, Giant, and Cimarron, which was made into the 1931 film that won the Academy… More about Edna Ferber
