Inhaltsangabe zu „McTeague: A Story of San Francisco“ von Frank Norris

Something of a cult classic, <i>McTeague</i> was one of the founding works of unflinching realism and naturalism in American writing. <i>McTeague</i> was first published in 1899; this new Modern Library edition brackets the book's 100-year journey through literary consciousness, from its first splash as a rather lurid literary sensation in its retelling of a true-life crime in turn-of-the-century San Francisco, to its renewed popularity among modern readers. Frank Norris' graphic portrayal of the seamy side of survival in turn-of-the-century urban America remains shocking and powerful today -and its conclusion just as harrowing. Where that cliched Death-Valley-handcuffed-to-a-dead-man thing comes from.
