Synopsis
A Hazard of New Fortunes is a novel by William Dean Howells. First published in 1890, the book was well-received for its awareness of social injustice-indeed, the book is considered by many to be his best work. The book is one of Howells' attempts to introduce the American Civil War into novels, rather than reconstruction novels, which were prominent in post-war America, while staying within the Realism style.

The book, which takes place in late 19th century New York, tells the story of the dispute between a self-made millionaire Wall Street trader and a social revolutionary, with a third man attempting to act as mediator.
