Among Dreiser's most compelling and most neglected works; as Irene Gammel points out in her entry in A Theodore Dreiser Encyclopedia (2003), Dreiser's interweaving of biography, autobiography, and fiction has created a text that must be seen as central in unraveling the author's (and his society's) ambivalence about the roles and powers of the New Woman who would come into her own in the course of the twentieth century. Subject: Modern Fiction, Social Fiction, Women.
