What to expect

The Open Boat, and Other Stories features four prized selections by Stephen Crane, recognized by modern critics as one of the most innovative writers of his generation.

“The Open Boat” is based on a harrowing incident in the author’s life: the 1897 sinking of a ship on which he was a passenger; “The Blue Hotel” and “The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky” reflect Crane’s early travels in Mexico and the American Southwest; and the novella Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is a galvanizing portrait of life in the slums of New York City.
