Maggie, A Girl of the Streets and Other Short FictioneBook - 2006
One of the most powerful depictions of the urban poor of its time. As a reviewer stated shortly after the work's appearance in 1893: Maggie is a study of life in the slums of New York, and of the hopeless struggle of a girl against the horrible conditions of her environment; and so bitter is the struggle, so black the environment, so inevitable is the end, that the reader feels a chill at his heart.
