Honestly, The Financier might have been a better book if it were The trouble with Dreiser book stand-alone novel. Perhaps then the conclusion would have been more satisfying/5(49).

Swanberg's is an example of the higher gossip. It was the third biography of Dreiser in twenty years after the writer's death. Largely it followed the first two, Robert Elias's Theodore Dreiser: Apostle of Nature and Dorothy Dudley's Forgotten Frontiers (not to mention Helen Dreiser's My life with Dreiser.)/5(2).

Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser was an American novelist and journalist of the naturalist school. His novels often featured main characters who succeeded at their objectives despite a lack of a firm moral code, and literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature than tales of choice and agency.

Dreiser's best known novels include Sister Carrie and An American Tragedy. But Dreiser was adamant. He had a contract, and he would not be dissuaded. Like any publisher bullied by one of their authors, Doubleday, Page. What difference does it really make?" Expressing sentiments like these is what kept Dreiser in trouble with the critics.

All in all, it's a very interesting book. Dreiser's muscular prose pulls the reader along, and most of what he has to say is still relevant. The only thing sorely missing Reviews: 2. "The Financier" is book 1 of "Trilogy of Desire" - a three-parter based on the remarkable life of the Chicago streetcar tycoon Charles Tyson Yerkes and composed of "The Financier" (), "The Titan" (), and "The Stoic", which was published posthumously in The Stoic is still under copyright and not available in the Public Domain.
