Portraits of America from the 1920s

Edited by Daniel H. Borus
Cornell University Press

A remarkable portrait of the 1920s, These United States features the insights of some of the most prominent men and women of American letters—among them, Willa Cather, H. L. Mencken, Theodore Dreiser, Sinclair Lewis, and W. E. B. Du Bois. The book presents a unique series of 49 articles as well as a generous sampling of stereoscopic photographs from the period.

“From 1922 to 1925, The Nation‘s managing editor, Ernest Gruening, persuaded 48 American authors to write about their native states for the magazine. This singularly valuable volume. . . reprints all the essays, plus an article on New York City.”—Publishers Weekly
