Life Stories of Undistinguished Americans by Werner Sollors

Book Description

Hamilton Holt, editor of The Independent, collected these touching autobiographies of ordinary people--new immigrants and sharecroppers, cooks and fishermen, women and men working in sweatshops, in the city, and on the land. First published in 1906, and reissued a decade ago, this new edition of Life Stories of Undistinguished Americans is expanded to include lives Holt did not include in his original selection, as well as a new preface by Werner Sollors.

Books By Author Werner Sollors

Temptation of Despair by Werner Sollors Temptation of Despair, Hardback (April 2014)

In Germany the end of World War II calls forth images of obliterated cities, hungry refugees, and ghostly monuments to Nazi crimes. Drawing on diaries, photographs, essays, reports, fiction and film, Werner Sollors makes visceral the sorrow and anger, guilt and pride, despondency and resilience of a defeated people--and the paradoxes of occupation.

Marrow of Tradition by Werner Sollors Marrow of Tradition, Paperback (July 2012)

The Norton Critical Edition of this hugely influential novel gives readers the fullest possible sense of its historical background and critical assessment.

New Literary History of America by Werner Sollors New Literary History of America, Paperback (May 2012)

America is a nation making itself up as it goes along. From the first conception of a New World in the sixteenth century to the latest re-envisioning of that world in cartoons, television, science fiction, and hip hop, this book gives us a fresh, kaleidoscopic view of what Made in America means.
