Description

Newton Booth Tarkington (1869–1946) was an American dramatist and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist. 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. First published in 1929, Tarkington’s novel “Penrod Jashber” is the third installment to “The Penrod Series”. Following on from his earlier novels “Penrod” (1914) and “Penrod and Sam” (1916), “Penrod Jashber” continues the story of the eponymous 11-year-old boy living in a small city in the Midwest who has now developed a penchant for solving mysteries. A charming tale of youth reminiscent of Mark Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn” that will not disappoint fans of Tarkington’s wonderful work. Other notable works by this author include: “Monsieur Beaucaire” (1900), “The Turmoil” (1915), and “The Magnificent Ambersons” (1918). Read & Co.
