The Financier

The Financier is a novel by American author Theodore Dreiser 

Frank Cowperwood, a fiercely ambitious businessman, emerges as the very embodiment of greed as he relentlessly seeks satisfaction in wealth, women, and power. As Cowperwood deals and double-deals, betrays and is in turn betrayed, his rise and fall come to represent the American success story stripped down to brutal realities-a struggle for spoils without conscience or pity. 

Dreiser's 1912 classic remains an unsparing social critique as well as a devastating character study of one of the most unforgettable American businessmen in twentieth-century literature.

“In its bigness, its insight into large phases of the evolution of American life, its portrayal of the fight for gold and power and the love for women, this novel is certain to be ranked as one of the great examples of modern fiction.”

Theodore Dreiser (1871 - 1945) was an American novelist and journalist of the naturalist school. His novels often featured main characters who succeeded at their objectives despite a lack of a firm moral code, and literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature than tales of choice and agency. Audiobook read by Richard Kilmer, running time 21 hours, 43 min. Unabridged full version.
