Correspondence capturing Dreiser's own take on his long and eventful lifeIn addition to his novels, short stories, plays, poetry, and a flood of journalism, Theodore Dreiser is estimated to have written an astonishing 20,000 letters. A Picture and a Criticism of Life presents a selection from his previously unpublished letters and shows Dreiser in every mood and circumstance, from crisply professional to happily unbuttoned. Meticulously annotated by Donald Pizer, the selections often shed significant new light on the writer's beliefs and activities during the various stages of his long career. A volume in the series The Dreiser Edition, edited by Thomas P. Riggio

"A fascinating and indispensable addition to the Dreiser canon."
--Miles Orvell, professor of English and American studies, Temple University

"Donald Pizer's new book proves he is among the best, if not the best, editor and compiler working the field of American literature. Combining an impressive command of the era with an unmatched knowledge of Dreiser's life, Pizer has brought the letters to life, filling in both the foreground and background of the letters and bringing continuity to what easily could have become a series of disparate documents."
--Richard Lehan, editor of Theodore Dreiser: Sister Carrie, Jennie Gerhardt, Twelve Men
