Originally published in 1934, Josephine Johnson's first novel Now in November portrays a middle-class family driven into poverty by the Depression. The brief and intense narrative movingly evokes the torment of people isolated & driven by strong- yet often unexpressed- feelings of love & hatred, and paints an indelible portrait of the Great Depression & Dust Bowl Years.
Winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction
"Firmly wrought, poetic in the best sense, the product of a highly individual mind, [Now in November] is complete and self-sustaining . . . and so distinctive that one could mistake no single paragraph for the work of any other writer." ―The New York Times
