Synopsis

Not yet famous for his Civil War masterpiece, The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane was unable to find a publisher for his brilliant Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, finally printing it himself in 1893.
Condemned and misunderstood during Crane's lifetime, this starkly realistic story of a pretty child of the Bowery has since been recognized as a landmark work in American fiction.

Now Crane's great short novel of life in turn-of-the-century New York is 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-stories of such remarkable power and clarity that they stand among the finest short stories ever written by an American.
