Overview

Booth Tarkington THE TURMOIL by Booth Tarkington, Booth Tarkington Pulitzer Prize Winner, The Magnificent Ambersons by Booth Tarkington, Alice Adams by Booth Tarkington

The Turmoil is the first novel in the �Growth� trilogy, which also includes The Magnificent Ambersons (1918) and The Midlander (1923, retitled National Avenue in 1927). In 1942 Orson Welles directed a film version based on volume 2, also titled �The Magnificent Ambersons.�

The trilogy traces the growth of the United States through the declining fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Amberson family in a fictional Mid-Western town, between the end of the Civil War and the early part of the 20th century, a period of rapid industrialization and socio-economic change in America. The decline of the Ambersons is contrasted with the rising fortunes of industrial tycoons and other new-money families, which did not derive power from family names but by �doing things�. -Librivox.com
