Overview

Jim Powell can’t help but be defined as a “jelly-bean”—a man who spends his life in a state of idleness. Not particularly sociable and ill at ease around women, Jim decides to dedicate his life to his work. Yet, after returning from service in the First World War, Jim meets an old classmate by chance, and through him, may evolve into something more than just a jelly-bean.

“The Jelly-Bean” references the locale and some of the characters that were featured in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s earlier story, “The Ice Palace.”
