Collected for the first time in one volume.How does money--or the lack of it--affect our lives? What happens when the rich meet the poor, when status comes with a price tag, when personal desires do battle with financial concerns? This unique anthology offers a mosaic of answers, with stories by: * Francine Prose * F. Scott Fitzgerald * Jack London * Kate Chopin * Ethan Canin * Gloria Naylor * Sandra Cisneros * O. Henry * Theodore Dreiser * Stephen Crane * Kate Braverman * James T. Farrell * Charlotte Perkins Gilman * and many others.
The improbable life story of Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) included a peculiarly gothic childhood in Ireland during which he was successively abandoned by his mother, his father and his guardian; two decades in the United States, where he worked as a journalist and was sacked for marrying a former slave; and a long period in Japan, where he married a Japanese woman and wrote about Japanese society and aesthetics for a Western readership. His ghost stories, which were drawn from Japanese folklore and influenced by Buddhist beliefs, appeared in collections throughout the 1890s and 1900s. He is a much celebrated figure in Japan.
