About the Book

George Barr McCutcheon wrote the humorous book Brewster's Millions at first using the alias Richard Greaves.
The protagonist of the book is Montgomery Brewster, a young man who receives a million dollars as an inheritance from his wealthy grandpa. He has one year to squander every cent of his grandfather's million dollars, leaving him with no assets or possessions. Brewster will receive the whole seven million dollars if he complies with these conditions; else, he will stay destitute. Under the rigorous guidelines set down by his uncle's bequest, Brewster finds it extremely challenging to spend this much money in a single year. He must exhibit sound business judgement by getting good value for his money and keeping his charitable giving and gambling losses to a minimum.
He once risks losing his eligibility for the will by using his resources to safeguard his landlady's account by bailing out a bank. At another, he goes overboard against the advice of his wealthy pals to save a drowning sailor from his trip. His continuous attempts to win her back fall flat because he is preoccupied with the need to spend so much money. At the end of the year, he succeeds in spending the rest of his carefully tracked cash and declares his love for Peggy Gray.

About Author

George Barr Mccutcheon

George Barr McCutcheon was an American playwright and famous author who lived from July 26, 1866, until October 23, 1928. His best-known works include the novel Brewster's Millions, which has been translated into a play and numerous films, and a series of books set in Graustark, a made-up nation in East Europe. In Indiana's Tippecanoe County, McCutcheon was born. Despite having no formal schooling himself, his father emphasized the importance of literature and urged his sons to write. McCutcheon's father worked a variety of occupations that needed him to traverse the county during McCutcheon's formative years. McCutcheon, a student at Purdue University, shared a room with comedian George Ade. He authored a satirical serial novel about life on the Wabash River while serving as editor of the Lafayette Daily Courier newspaper during his college years. Despite the fact that the first book in the Graustark series was released in 1901, McCutcheon rejected the label Romantic and sought to be known for his playwriting. He passed away in Manhattan, New York City, New York, and was the older brother of renowned cartoonist John T. McCutcheon. The Golden Age of Indiana Literature is thought to have included McCutcheon.
