An ingenious concept conceived by William Dean Howells, Whole Family is a novel written by twelve different writers, including Henry James, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, and Henry Van Dyke. Each writer tackles a different family member, with Howells's portrait of the family patriarch, who has doubts about his daughter's engagement, setting the story in motion.
