Overview

Alice Adams by Booth Tarkington

The patient, an old-fashioned man, thought the nurse made a mistake in keeping both of the windows open, and her sprightly disregard of his protests added something to his hatred of her. Every evening he told her that anybody with ordinary gumption ought to realize that night air was bad for the human frame. The human frame won't stand everything, Miss Perry, he warned her, resentfully. "Even a child, if it had just ordinary gumption, ought to know enough not to let the night air blow on sick people yes, nor well people, either! 'Keep out of the night air, no matter how well you feel

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.
