About the Author:

Newton Booth Tarkington (1869 - 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his Pulitzer Prize winning novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams, which also became a film by Orson Welles. He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once, along with William Faulkner and John Updike. Tarkington chronicled Midwestern American life and the changes wrought by the economic boom times following the Civil War and up to World War I.

Review:

"Over the pictures, the vases, the old brown plush rocking-chairs and the stool, over the three gilt chairs, over the new chintz-covered easy chair and the gray velure sofa over everything everywhere, was the familiar coating of smoke and grime... Yet here was not fault of housewifery; the curse could not be lifted, as the ingrained smudges permanent on the once white woodwork proved. The grime was perpetually renewed; scrubbing only ground it in." from the novel
