Excerpt from The Complete Works of Frank Norris: McTeague and a Man's Woman

Once in his office, or, as he called it on his sign-board, Dental Parlors, he took off his coat and shoes, unbuttoned his vest, and, having crammed his little stove full of coke, lay back in his operat ing chair at the bay window, reading the paper, drinking his beer, and smoking his huge porcelain pipe while his food digested; crop full, stupid, and warm. By and by, gorged with steam beer, and overcome by the heat of the room, the cheap tobacco, and the effects of his heavy meal, he dropped off to sleep. Late in the after noon his canary bird, in its gilt cage just over his head, began to sing. He woke slowly, finished the rest of his beer - very flat and stale by this time - and taking down his concertina from the book case, where in week days it kept the company of seven volumes of Allen's Practical Dentist, played upon it some half-dozen very mournful airs.

About the Author:

Frank Norris was an American author who wrote primarily in the naturalist genre, focusing on the impact of corruption and turn-of-the-century capitalism on common people. Best known for his novel McTeague and for the first two parts of his unfinished The Epic of the Wheat trilogy The Octopus: A Story of California and The Pit, Norris wrote prolifically during his lifetime. Following his education at the Acad?mie Julian in Paris, University of California, Berkeley, and at Harvard University, Norris worked as a news correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, and covered the Spanish-American War in Cuba for McClure s Magazine. Norris died suddenly in 1902 of peritonitis, leaving The Wolf: A Story of Empire, the final part of his Wheat trilogy, incomplete.
