Brief Reviews "The Game as It Is Played": Essays on Theodore Dreiser. By Donald Pizer. New York: Peter Lang, 2013. 224 pp. Cloth, $85.95. This collection brings together some of Donald Pizer's finest essays on Dreiser in a volume as concise as it is comprehensive. These essays represent an impressive range of Pizer's studies from the aesthetics of Dreiser's naturalism to his politics and prejudices. "The Game as It Is Played" collects over forty years' worth of scholarship by one of Dreiser's most important authorities and constitutes an essential compilation for Dreiser studies.
