Sister CarrieeBook - 2016
The controversial classic novel of a young woman's journey from poverty to stardom in capitalist America. Dissatisfied with life in rural Wisconsin, eighteen-year-old Carrie Meeber travels to Chicago. With no money or prospects, her only means of survival is a job in a squalid factory-until Charlie Drouet, a charming, well-dressed man, offers to take her to dinner. Lavishing her with gifts, fine clothes, and her own apartment, Charlie introduces Carrie to a life of wealth and sophistication far removed from the Victorian moralizing of her youth. But when Carrie begins an affair with another man-and a career as an actress-her ambitions and desires reach far beyond what Charlie, or any man, can offer. This eBook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
