Booth Tarkington – US version

$ 1.49

Booth Tarkington, a leading American novelist of the Interwar period, was famous for his novels ‘The Magnificent Ambersons’ and ‘Alice Adams’. Although he was considered by many to be America’s greatest living author in the 1910’s and 1920’s, being one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize multiple times, his works are sadly neglected today. This comprehensive eBook presents Tarkington’s collected works, featuring many rare novels for the first time in digital publishing. As well as numerous illustrations and informative introductions, this edition offers readers the opportunity to rediscover this important American novelist. (Version 2)

Please note: this is the US version for sale only to US customers.
