Description

Roast Beef, Medium: The Business Adventures of Emma McChesney

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 featured Emma McChesney: 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: honest, hardworking, and able to outsell the slickest salesman.

Like her compact bag of traveling necessities, Emma has her life boiled down to essentials: her work and her seventeen-year-old son, Jock. Her experience has taught her that it's best to stick to roast beef, mediumavoiding both physical and moral indigestionrather than experiment with fancy sauces and exotic dishes. Yet she never shies away from a challenge, and her sharp instincts and common sense serve her well in dealing with the likes of Ed Meyer, a smooth-talking, piano-playing salesman; Blanche LeHay, prima donna of the Sam Levin Crackerjack Belles; and T. A. Buck Jr., the wet-behind-the-ears son of the founder of Featherloom.

About Ferber:

Edna Ferber (15 August 1885 - 16 April 1968), was an Americannovelist, author and playwright. Ferber's novels generally featuredstrong female protagonists, although she fleshed out multiplecharacters in each book. She usually highlighted at least onestrong secondary character who faced discrimination ethnically orfor other reasons; through this technique, Ferber demonstrated herbelief that people are people and that the not-so-pretty personshave the best character. Due to her imagination in scene, characterization and plot, several theatrical and film productionshave been made based on her works, including Show Boat, Giant, Saratoga Trunk, Cimarron (which won an Oscar) and the 1960 remake.Two of these works - Show Boat and Saratoga Trunk - were developedinto musicals. 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...
