Summary
"The story of a young woman from Wisconsin who goes to Chicago, becomes an actress, marries and moves to New York, and when her husband loses his job, returns to the stage." ***"A powerful account of a young working girl's rise to the 'tinsel and shine' of worldly success, and of the slow decline of her lover and protector Hurstwood." Oxford Companion to Engl Lit. ***"Plain, unaffected, and unconventional story of the actual life of the lower middle-classes of New York and Chicago. Its chief interest is its exhaustive record of the career of a young woman led into vice by her weakness for pleasure, and the careful study of a man's moral deterioration." Baker's Best
