Description

Emma McChesney and Company

by Edna Ferber

Edna Ferber, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Show Boat and Giant, achieved her first great success with a series of stories she published in American Magazine between 1911 and 1913. The stories feature Emma McChesney, a smart, savvy, stylish, divorced mother, and Midwest traveling sales representative for T. A. Buck's Featherloom skirts and petticoats. With one hand on her sample case and the other fending off advances from salesmen, hotel clerks, and other predators, Emma holds on tightly to her reputation. Her experience has taught her that it's best to stick to roast beef, medium, rather than experiment with fancy sauces and exotic dishes. Emma McChesney and Company is the final volume of three chronicling the travels and trials of Emma McChesney.

When composer Jerome Kern proposed turning the veryserious Show Boat into a musical, Ferber was shocked, thinking itwould be transformed into a typical light entertainment of the1920s, and it was not until Kern explained that he and OscarHammerstein II wanted to create a different type of musical thatFerber granted him the rights. Saratoga (musical) was written at amuch later date, after serious plots had become acceptable in stagemusicals. In 1925, she won the Pulitzer Prize for her book So Big, which was made into a silent film starring Colleen Moore that sameyear. An early talkie movie remake followed, in 1932, starringBarbara Stanwyck and George Brent, with Bette Davis in a s...
