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.

About the Author

Stephen Crane (1871–1900) was an American novelist, poet, and journalist. He worked as a reporter of slum life in New York and a highly paid war correspondent for newspaper tycoons William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. He wrote many works of fiction, poems, and accounts of war, all well received but none as acclaimed as his 1895 Civil War novel, The Red Badge of Courage. Today he is considered one of the most innovative American writers of the 1890s and one of the founders of literary realism.
