4.0 1 5 Autor: Booth Tarkington
Booth Tarkington was born in America’s Mid-West in Indianapolis, Indiana on July 29th, 1869.

He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize on more than one occasion. When you look through the quality of his work it is easy to understand why. ‘The Magnificent Ambersons’, ‘Alice Adams’, ‘Penrod’ – all classics. The Penrod novels depict a typical upper-middle class American boy of 1910 vintage, revealing a fine, bookish sense of American humor. At one time, his Penrod series was as well-known and as highly regarded as Mark Twain’s ‘Huckleberry Finn’.

Much of Tarkington's work consists of satirical and closely observed studies of the American class system and its foibles. Coming as he did from a patrician Midwestern family that lost much of its wealth after the Panic of 1873 the foundations for that outlook are clear.

Today, he is best known for his novel ‘The Magnificent Ambersons’ but almost every book he published is a consummate literary example of his brilliance. Few authors can rival that.
