So by opening the book showing us McTeague getting his pitcher of beer, Norris is already suggesting the way in which we can't escape our inherited human nature.

      "McTeague" is the story of a poor dentist scraping by in San Francisco at the end of the 19th century and his wife Trina, whose $5, lottery winning sets in motion a shocking chain of events. This edition features a new Afterword. Revised reissue. McTeague is a simple dentist who becomes infatuated with Trina, the cousin of his friend Marcus. Trina then buys a winning lottery ticket, and McTeague announces his plans to marry her. But their marriage quickly falls apart as greed consumes them both, and Marcus' jealousy toward McTeague boils over/5(K).

      The McTeague's had come to use it as a sort of substitute for a table. After breakfast and supper Trina piled the plates and greasy dishes upon it to have them out of the way. One afternoon the Other Dentist, McTeague's old-time rival, the wearer of marvellous waistcoats, was surprised out of all countenance to receive a visit from McTeague. McTeague looked forward to these Sunday afternoons as a period of relaxation and enjoyment. He invariably spent them in the same fashion. These were his only pleasures--to eat, to smoke, to sleep, and to play upon his concertina.
