Autobiography. Women's Studies. Few books in U.S. History have provoked more outrage and debate than THE STORY OF MARY MACLANE did when it was first published in Chicago in 1902. With unprecedented frankness, the 19-year-old author revealed her utter scorn for conformity and puritanism. Periodically I fall completely, madly in love with the Devil. He is so fascinating, so strong -- so strong, exactly the sort of man my wooden heart awaits. I would like to throw myself at his head. I would make him a dear little wife.... This lively collection features the complete text of THE STORY OF MARY MACLANE and a generous selection of her other writings, reprinted here for the first time. THE STORY OF MARY MACLANE is little short of a miracle. No more marvelous book was ever born of a sensitive, precocious brain (Clarence Darrow).
