"The author was very young when she wrote the Depression-era short novel Now in November (Feminist Press, 1001), and she won the Pulitzer for it in 1935 despite the fact that she was not only young but female in a male-dominated society. I read online (I forget where, sorry) that this book is one of the five least read and remembered of all the Pulitzer prize–winning books for fiction. I find that sad after reading it, because it is well written and tells a tragic yet beautiful story of a family struggling to survive in a world hit hard by the Depression."
