The 1925 bestseller list is peopled by novelists who were, if not household names, at least recognized names, in their day. Today few would even be recognized by English lit majors.
Here’s the list and the date when you can look for my review.
Soundings by A. Hamilton Gibbs [June 23]
The Constant Nymph by Margaret Kennedy [June. 27]
The Keeper of the Bees by Gene Stratton Porter [June. 30]
Glorious Apollo by E. Barrington [July 4]
The Green Hat by Michael Arlen [July 7]
The Little French Girl by Anne Douglas Sedgwick [second year on list]
Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis [July 11]
The Perennial Bachelor by Anne Parrish [July 14]
The Carolinian by Rafael Sabatini [July 18]
One Increasing Purpose by A. S. M. Hutchinson [July 21]
