Summary "From Elizabeth Stoddard's The Morgesons and Anzia Yzierska's The Bread Givers to Laurie Colwin's Shine On, Bright and Dangerous Object and Chet Raymo's The Dork of Cork, here are some of the forgotten gems of American literature." "Bridges has compiled a list of 100 American novels published between 1797 and 1997 and worthy of the title "great." Although the idea is to bring light to the obscure, these titles are physically accessible to readers - either in print, or in library collections and available through library loan. For each title, Bridges provides a brief quotation from the book, a plot summary and review, and biographical sketch of the author, a list of the author's other publications, and resources to consult. Intended as a ready reference, this guide will be of particular interest to readers' advisors, as well as faculty and students of American literature."--BOOK JACKET.
