Fanny Herself (Dodo Press)

by Edna Ferber

Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

Fanny Herself (Dodo Press) Synopsis

Early twentieth-century novel by Edna Ferber, the American, novelist, author and playwright whose novels generally featured a strong female as the protagonist, although she fleshed out multiple characters in each book. She usually highlighted at least one strong secondary character who faced discrimination ethnically or for other reasons; through this technique, Ferber demonstrated her belief that people are people and that the non-so-pretty persons have the best character.
