About the Book

Georgie Bassett was a unique young man. He was unaware of it until he overheard his mother discussing it with two of his aunts one day. The guys came to the conclusion that the weather is unjust. All during the week, there had been pleasant breezes and clear skies, but on Saturday, around breakfast, the dome of heaven completely filled with a dark mist. Mrs. Schofield was returning from a three-day trip to see her sister in Dayton, Illinois when she lost herself in a daydream on the train. In her reflective mind, she replayed several memory plays, and Penrod appeared in each one as a main character or star. This winter, the Schofields went without a cat, but the Williams' yard had a lovely white cat. Penrod slouched down in the pew, leaning one side and resting his legs on the back of the pew in front. As a result, those seated behind only saw a tuft of hair and one bored ear of him. They sat down in the large dining room quietly enough, but their brazen looks caused them to purposefully bump into their neighbors and jostle one another as they did so. The slight explosion of paper "crackers" that released fantastical headwear brought the reflection to a close.

About Author

Booth Tarkington

The Magnificent Ambersons (1918) and Alice Adams are among the works of American author Newton Booth Tarkington, who was born on July 29, 1869, and died on May 19, 1946. (1921). He is one of just four authors who have twice won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. He was regarded as the best-living novelist in the United States in the 1910s and 1920s. The son of John S. Tarkington and Elizabeth Booth Booth, Tarkington was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and was given the name Newton Booth in honor of his maternal uncle. The Triangle Club, subsequently known as Triangle, was created with his help, and he began the custom of staging student plays there. A blatant Midwestern regionalist, Tarkington based a large portion of his novels in his home state of Indiana. He twice received the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for his books The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams, in 1919 and 1922. Given his family's long history of public service, Tarkington believed that gentlemen in his socioeconomic position had a duty to serve their communities. One of the more well-known American authors of his period was Tarkington. Satirical and meticulously documented analyses of the American class structure make up a large portion of Tarkington's writing.
