The Chronology of American Literature in the 20th Century: 1930-1939 - Page 3

This is the 8th instalment of my chronology of American fiction. It is a list of novels & short story collections by American authors published in 1930-1939. There are 10 Pulitzer Prize winners as well as works by Nobel Prize winners Pearl S. Buck, Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, I.B. Singer and Sinclair Lewis. (For aficionados of book covers: if a book icon didn't exist in the database (which was about 70% of the time), I created its icon, as often as possible, using an early cover.)
Click on the link to go to the previous instalment, which covers 1940-1949.
