Peter Cameron is the author of several novels, including Andorra, The Weekend, and Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You. He lives in New York City.
The Outward Room was a sensation when first published in 1937. It is the story of a young womans path from suffering to deep fulfillment, set in Depression-era New York City. One of those firmly painted, exquisite miniatures of life…that contrive to be unsparing and honest, and at the same time refreshing and lovely. —Theodore Dreiser
