Twenty Tales by Twenty Women - From Real Life in Chicago


First published in 1903, this fascinating collection of real-life stories of 'fallen' women and their experiences of life in underground Chicago at the turn of the twentieth century. "Twenty Tales by Twenty Women" gives voice to those women who have been ostracised and judged by society, and those that have fallen victim to circumstances beyond their control. Contents include: "A Woman's Anguish", "The Diary of a Chicago Woman", "The Life Story of a Southern Widow", "A Story of the Chicago Ghetto", "A Woman of Thirty-eight", "A Forecast", "A Daughter of Proud Kentucky", "My Lover's Bequest", "The Victim of a Drug", etc. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in real-life stories of sex-workers, the history of prostitution, and life in Chicago during the early 1900s. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
