NYC #54: Edna Ferber, Manhattan

At 50 Central Park West, near West 65 Street:

The widely-read novelist, short story writer,
and playwright, best known for the novel Giant (1952)
lived here from 1923 to 1929. Ferber's fiction is
distinguished by larger-than-life stories, strong female
characters, and distinctive renderings of American
settings. Two of her novels were published while
she lived here: the Pulitzer Prize-winning
So Big (1924), and Show Boat (1926).'
