Zuleika Dobson was one of the best sellers in the Heritage Press series. Also, the color illustrations did much to add to its popularity. What a blast, I read that book twice.

Yes, I agree. I would also add Zuleika Dobson to the list of now  
obscure stuff to read - a real hoot!

I'm currently reading Crane's Maggie online in Google Books. (I don't  
have a copy.) It's a genuine tragicomedy. Great stuff! Reminds me of  
a late Dickens.
