An American Tragedy
by Theodore Dreiser
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2009
Number of pages: 960
It is a complex account of the life and death of a young antihero named Clyde GRIFFITHS. The novel begins with Clyde's blighted background, recounts his path to success, and culminates in his apprehension, trial, and execution for murder. The book was called by one influential critic "the worst-written great novel in the world," but its questionable grammar and style are transcended by its narrative power.
