"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.
