"A powerful, severe, and harshly comic portrayal of Irish immigrant life in lower New York exactly a century ago." —Alfred Kazin

Maggie, a powerful exploration of the destructive forces that underlie urban society and human nature, produced a scandal when it was first published in 1893. This volume includes "George's Mother" and eleven other tales and sketches of New York written between 1892 and 1896.

From the Inside Flap:

Stephen 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.
