about this item

Edna Ferber’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is a rollicking panorama of Chicago's high and low life at the turn of the twentieth century—now available in a limited Olive Edition.

“A masterpiece. . . . It has the completeness, [the] finality that grips and exalts and convinces.”—Literary Review

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and widely considered to be Edna Ferber's greatest achievement, So Big is a classic novel of turn-of-the-century Chicago. It is the unforgettable story of Selina Peake DeJong, a gambler's daughter, and her struggles to stay afloat and maintain her dignity and her sanity in the face of marriage, widowhood, and single parenthood.

A brilliant literary masterwork from one of the twentieth century's most accomplished and admired writers, the remarkable So Big still resonates with its unflinching view of poverty, sexism, and the drive for success.
