Publisher's Summary

Jennie Gerhardt is the tragic story of an innocent, caring, beautiful young girl from an extremely poor family who throughout her life is drawn into affairs with two different men from a much higher social class. How members of her family, the family of one of the wealthy men, and society in general react to her situation is the basis of this classic story.

Jennie Gerhardt was Theodore Dreiser's first true commercial success and is generally regarded as one of his best novels.

    Story
    "Need a pick me up."

    Like: beautifully written prose providing insight into the internal struggle of people seeking to create meaning in their lives in the face of the exacting, overpowering and subduing power of group over individual. It was rather painful to read through the submission of the heroine and the existential crisis of her lover, but I believe that was the point.

    Dislike: it's bloody depressing especially because it's rather accurate.

    If I hadn't felt like I needed to go watch Elmo for a dose saccharine optimism, I would have given the novel five stars for the quality of writing.
