Edna Ferber wrote short stories for the Post before winning the Pulitzer Prize for her 1925 novel So Big. Ferber also authored Show Boat, Cimarron, and Giant, among others. Her plays, novels, and short stories have been adapted into acclaimed films and musicals, and Ferber’s place in the Algonquin Round Table, alongside Dorothy Parker and Noël Coward, entrenched the female-focused author as a leading voice of the early century.
