Fannie Hurst (1885 - 1968) was an American novelist and short-story writer whose works were highly popular during the post-World War I era. Her work combined sentimental, romantic themes with social issues of the day, such as women's rights and race relations. She was one of the most widely-read female authors of the 20th century, and for a time in the 1920s she was one of the highest-paid American writers, along with Booth Tarkington. Hurst also actively supported a number of social causes, including feminism, African American equality, and New Deal programs.
Lummox details the harsh life of an uneducated and sometimes jobless woman.
Lummox was also a 1930 American Pre-Code sound film directed by Herbert Brenon, released through United Artists.
