This same year reprint of the first authorized edition follows the original 1900 limited issue and is itself scarce. Green cloth. Broken cup pressed in gilt on front cover. Color frontispiece. Good plus. Spine is slightly flaccid and boards bear some minor edgewear. Pages are tight and clean. 8vo. 550 pages. Dreiser's masterpiece and first novel. Exultantly praised by the likes of Sinclair Lewis and H. L. Mencken, it is on Modern Library's list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In Sister Carrie, Dreiser portrayed a changing society, writing about an 18 year old woman who flees rural life for the big city of Chicago and struggles with poverty, economic exploitation, complex relationships with men, and as a kept woman. For its libertine sexual morality it received resistance in publishing. The initial publisher Doubleday & McClure accepted the manuscript then declined to publish until relenting at the insistence of Dreiser and 1,008 copies were printed in 1900. Although often well received by critics, the publisher refused to promote it, and it sold less than 500 copies. All subsequent editions were censored until a scholarly edition released by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 1981. Sister Carrie was adapted for the 1952 twice-Oscar nominated film, Carrie, starring Jennifer Jones and Laurence Olivier. Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser (1871 - 1945) was an American novelist and journalist of the naturalist school who was nominated for a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1930. Size: 8vo.
