Overview

This file includes: Alice Adams, The Conquest of Cannan, The Flirt, The Magnificent Ambersons, The Quest of Quesnay, The Turmoil, and The Two Vanrevels. According to Wikipedia, "Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 – May 19, 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams.... Much of Tarkington's work consists of satirical and closely observed studies of the American class system and its foibles....his novel The Magnificent Ambersons, which Orson Welles filmed in 1942, the second volume in Tarkington's Growth trilogy, contrasted the decline of the "old money" Amberson dynasty against the rise of "new money" industrial tycoons in the years between the American Civil War and World War I."
