Golden Age of Indiana Literature

Indiana truly burst on the literary scene with the 1880 publication of Lew Wallace's Ben-Hur. For the next four decades, Hoosiers contributed hundreds of novels to the world, many of them full of regional flavor. Ben-Hur went on to become the best-selling novel of the 19th century, outselling even Uncle Tom's Cabin, and Hoosier author Booth Tarkington won two Pulitzer Prizes for his fiction.
