Maggie: A Girl of the Streets/George's Mother - Stephen Crane
This qualifies as both a bargain (under $1.00) book and a forgotten treasure. I am counting this as one book as my edition had both of these novellas in a single paperback, although Maggie was originally published in 1893 and George in 1896. I liked both, they reminded me of Frank Norris' McTeague in many ways, which I guess is because they all seem to be influenced by naturalism. Sad stories, well told.
