Description: Heralded by one reviewer as "the most serious, extended and dignified of Edna Ferber's books", Fanny Herself is the intensely personal chronicle of a young girl growing up Jewish in a small midwestern town. Packed with the warmth and the wry, sidelong wit that made Ferber one of the best-loved writers of her time, the novel charts Fanny's emotional growth through her relationship with her mother, the shrewd, sympathetic Molly Brandeis.

Ambivalent about being Jewish, self-deprecating toward her gift for sketching and drawing, and inspired as a businesswoman, Fanny strives to carve out her sense of herself. She is accompanied on her journey by impeccably drawn characters such as Father Fitzpatrick, the Catholic priest in Winnebago; Ella Monahan, buyer for the glove department of the Haynes-Cooper mail order house; and Clarence Heyl, the scrappy columnist who never forgot how Fanny rescued him from the school bullies.

Through Fanny's honest struggle with conflicting values -- financial security and corporate success versus altruism and artistic integrity -- Ferber grapples with some of the most deeply embedded contradictions of the American spirit.
