An American Tragedy
NoteseBook - 1974
Called one of the best writers on the American scene, Dreiser is also called one of the world's best worst writers, with claims that he is an impurist with nothing but genius. This story, told in gruesome detail and with unswerving realism, recounts the dilemmas and choices of a loser; we watch him ascend to temptation, fall in transgression, and receive his appropriate penance.
