Vandover and the brute by Frank Norris( Book )

50 editions published between 1914 and 2015 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written circa 1894-95 but only published posthumously in 1914, Frank Norris's Vandover and the Brute presents an unflinching portrait of unconventional sexuality, moral dissolution, and physical degeneration. In the setting of turn-of-the-century San Francisco depicted in Vandover, disaster encompasses far more than the vivid accounts of shipwreck or fire that appear in the novel. The slow wasting away of characters who contract syphilis, the suicide of a young girl, and the murder of a man clinging to a lifeboat fascinate readers today as much as they did a century ago, when this scandalous novel was first published. The most complete wreck is Vandover himself, whose artistic talents and constitution collapse after orgies of drink and sexual abandon. Russ Castronovo's new edition gathers historical materials on literary naturalism, gender and criminality, and the visual culture of the late nineteenth century
