This classic novel tells the story of Philip Carey, an orphan with a club foot who is raised by a religious aunt and uncle. Yearning for adventure, Philip eventually leaves home to pursue a career as an artist in Paris. When he returns to London to study medicine, he meets the alluring but unfeeling Mildred, beginning a doomed love affair that will change the course of his life. "Here is a novel of the utmost importance," wrote Theodore Dreiser. "It is a beacon of light by which the wanderer may be guided. . . . One feels as though one were sitting before a splendid Shiraz of priceless texture and intricate weave, admiring, feeling, responding sensually to its colors and tones." Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
