Summary
"This Concise Companion offers an authoritative overview of American fiction from 1900-1950, focusing on the literature that developed out of the social, cultural, and political changes which occurred in the first part of the twentieth century. With careful reference to key authors and their works, newly commissioned chapters examine the period's formative events, such as the Depression and the two world wars, and their representation in literature."--BOOK JACKET
