about this book

Crane's great short novel of life in turn-of-the-century New York published in its original form, along with four of Crane's best short stories: "The Blue Hotel," "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky," "The Monster," and "The Open Boat."  Crane's first novel is the tale of a pretty young slum girl driven to brutal excesses by poverty and loneliness. It was considered so sexually frank and realistic, that the book had to be privately printed at first. It and GEORGE'S MOTHER, the shorter novel that follows in this edition, were eventually hailed as the first genuine expressions of Naturalism in American letters and established their creator as the American apostle of an artistic revolution which was to alter the shape and destiny of civilization itself.
