  1. Author: Norris, Frank
    Title: McTeague
    Date: 1899
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In an 1899 Courier article Cather writes: "His horizon is wide, his invention vigorous and bold, his touch heavy and warm and human.... He has looked at truth in the depths, among men begrimed by toil and besotted by ignorance, and still found her fair." In a 1900 Courier article Cather writes: "Last winter that brilliant young Californian ... published a remarkable and gloomy novel, McTeague, a book deep in insight, rich in promise and splendid in execution, but entirely without charm and as disagreeable as only a great piece of work can be." In an April 1900 Courier article Cather calls it "a book that could not be ignored nor dismissed with a word."
