about this book

This Modern Library paperback edition includes a Foreword by the author, an Introduction by Andrew Delbanco, and a Preface by H.L. Mencken. Sister Carrie is Dreiser's great American novel of seduction, a masterpiece of insight into appetite and innocence.

"Such a novel as Sister Carrie stands quite outside the brief traffic of the customary stage.... One does not arise from such a book as Sister Carrie with a smirk of satisfaction; one leaves it infinitely touched."
--H.L. Mencken
