The Pit

by Frank Norris

This powerful novel is the fictitious narrative of a deal in the Chicago wheat pit and holds the reader from the beginning.

The social existence, the gambling in stocks and produce, the characteristic life in Chicago, form a background for an exceedingly vigorous and human tale of modern life and love.
