This biography of the life of Arthur Henry could have been reviewed in our literary section, but is featured here for its far-reaching and lively presentation. Author Theodore Dreiser's shocking first novel Sister Carrie might never have gained such fame were it not for his closest friend, one Arthur Henry, who prodded him to write fiction and helped him create his first novel. Henry's life also touched many social reformers and other authors of his time: he deserves his own coverage and thanks to new material recently revealed, the Walkers have at last created a biography following his career and influences.
