Product Description

In 1902, after Chopin's novel The Awakening was condemned, her publisher canceled her most innovative work - a collection of stories full of passion, decadence, and sensuality. Included here are "The Story of and Hour," a shocking reversal of the most profound event of her childhood; "An Egyptian Cigarette," the story of a drug trip; and the title story, about a sweet-voiced boy soprano who learns about adult life.

Author Bio

Kate Chopin (1850–1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. Because The Awakening was widely condemned, publication of Chopin’s third story collection was cancelled. The Awakening was rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work.
