Some highlights: classic works by Edith Wharton, O. Henry, Jack London, Theodore Dreiser, Mark Twain, Henry James, Upton Sinclair and others. The Wizard of Oz, the Bobbsey twins, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.
This is the 11th and final instalment of my chronology of American fiction. It is a list of novels & short story collections by American authors published in 1900-1909. (As usual, if a book icon didn't exist in the database I created its icon using an early edition cover, as far as possible.)
