"One of the great works of the modern American imagination." -- Alfred Kazin. When a charlatan and his money-hungry wife win the lottery, their good fortune rapidly turns sour in this riveting tale of avarice, degeneration, and death. Based on a true incident that occurred in San Francisco at the turn of the 20th century, this cult classic was among the earliest novels in American literature to present a compelling, realistic view of human nature at its most basic level.

About the Author

Like Zola and the European naturalists, Frank Norris (1870-1902) focused on writing realistic fictional explorations of the effects of heredity and environment. In the course of his tragically brief career, he came to view the novel as a mode of social betterment. Works such as McTeague, The Octopus, and The Pit offer authentic and highly readable portraits of California life at the turn of the 20th century.
