Overview

Alice Adams by Booth Tarkington

This Pulitizer Prize-winning novel, perhaps Tarkington's best, tells the story of a middle-class family living in the industrialized "midland country" at the turn of the 20th century. Alice Adams's resiliency of spirit makes her one of Tarkington's most compelling female characters.


About the Author:
Booth Tarkington was born in Indianapolis in 1889. He was a consummate interpreter of the Hoosier scene and a conscious booster of his native state, as evidenced in his best-selling Penrod adventures, Seventeen, and The Gentleman from Indiana. He was also, however, a serious and highly regarded writer, winning the Pulitzer Prize for the Magnificent Ambersons and for Alice Adams.

I've never seen a book of fiction printed this way. Quite unique. I found the story often amusing, though sometimes hard to follow. Poor Mr. Adams was beset with health and spousal issues, but he is fortunate to have an understanding employer. His daughter, the star of this show, has to grow up. It can be difficult, but it works out. This could easily be quite depressing, but the writing is light.
