Enjoy Theodore Dreiser's story about Sister Carrie Meeber, a young country girl from Wisconsin seeking to fulfill her dreams in the big city of Chicago. Sister Carrie explores the cost of material aspirations and introduces a difficult concept for its time: the idea that immorality does have benefits, up to a point. We highly recommend Dreiser's poignant novel, a delight to read. "When the distraction of the tongue is removed, the heart listens.”
We feature Sister Carrie in 25 Great American Novels.
