The Fascinating Stranger and Other Stories

A fantastic collection of classic short stories by American dramatist and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Newton Booth Tarkington (1869–1946). Among only three other novelists to have won the Pulitzer Prize more than once, Tarkington was one of the greatest authors of the 1910s and 1920s who helped usher in Indiana’s Golden Age of literature. His books saw numerous reprintings and were often prize-winning bestsellers, with many being for film and other media.
