McTeague: A Story of San Francisco

by

McTeague: A Story of San Francisco Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by an actual crime that was sensationalized in the San Francisco papers, this novel tells the story of charlatan dentist McTeague and his wife Trina, and their spiralling descent into moral corruption. Norris is often considered to be the "American Zola," and this passionate tale of greed, degeneration, and death is one of the most purely naturalistic American novels of the nineteenth century. It is also one of the first major works of literature set in California, and it provided the story for Erich von Stroheim's classic of the silent screen, Greed.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [xxx]-xxxi).
