The Turmoil
Booth Tarkington
Introduction by Lawrence R. Rodgers
A familiar midwestern novel in the tradition of Sherwood Anderson and Sinclair Lewis, The Turmoil was the best-selling novel of 1915. It is set in a small, quiet citynever named but closely resembling the author's hometown of Indianapolisthat is quickly being transformed into a bustling, money-making nest of competitors more or less overrun by "the worshippers of Bigness." "There is a midland city in the heart of fair, open country, a dirty and wonderful city nesting dingily in the fog of its own smoke," begins The Turmoil, the first volume of Pulitzer Prize-winner Booth Tarkington's "Growth" trilogy. A narrative of loss and change, a love story, and a warning about the potential evils of materialism, the book chronicles two midwestern families trying to cope with the onset of industrialization. Tarkington believed that culture could flourish even as the country was increasingly fueled by material progress. The Turmoil

Bio: Newton Booth Tarkington, an enormously prolific novelist, playwright, and short story writer who chronicled urban middle-class life in the American Midwest during the early twentieth century, was born in Indianapolis on July 29, 1869. He was the son of John Stevenson Tarkington, a lawyer, and Elizabeth Booth Tarkington. His uncle and namesake, Newton Booth, was a governor of California and later a United States senator. In the essay 'As I Seem to Me,' published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1941, Tarkington recalled dictating a story to his sister when he was only six. By the age of sixteen he had written a fourteen-act melodrama about Jesse James. Tarkington was educated at Phillips Exeter Academy, Purdue University, and Princeton, where his burlesque musical The Honorable Julius Caesar was staged by the Triangle Club. Upon leaving Princeton in 1893 he returned to Indiana determined to pursue a career as a writer.

Illinois! Illinois! The Turbulent Years: Civil War-1914
B C D ... T-Z 723. TARKINGTON, NEWTON BOOTH, 1869-1946. Penrod, Penrod, one of the best-loved stories of a past generation, is based partially on reminiscences from the author's childhood days spent visiting relatives in Marshall, Illinois. The story of eleven-year-old Penrod, culminating on his twelfth birthday, reveals a disarmingly real boy, son of a genteel family, who is, for reasons he cannot comprehend, known throughout the community as the Town's Worst Boy. Penrod quite innocently seems pursued by mischief which inevitably sneaks up on him, just as Tarkington's exquisite sense of humor and decency inevitably manages to slip into the narration. Tarkington's style and philosophy direct the book toward an adult audience, and the details of a late nineteenth century boyhood, from the horrors of Friday afternoon dancing classes to the joys promised by an unsupervised caldron of tar, are more likely to interest today's adults than today's children. After its first publication in 1913-14 in serial form in several magazines, Penrod was published in book form in 1914 and quickly became one of the three best sellers in the country. It has retained much of its popularity through the years.

Booth Tarkington
Newton Booth Tarkington was born on the 29th of July in Indianapolis, Indiana . He was born into a comfortable family, although some difficulties came in 1873, when his father lost a great deal of money in the stock market crash of that year. Still the family had well-established roots in Indianapolis, and stayed afloat with some assistance from his grandfather (Newton Booth) and uncles (one of whom at one time provided a house for the family to live in). He spent two years at Purdue and two years at Princeton before returning to Indianapolis in 1893 to earn a living by sketching and writing. His first efforts were illustrated short stories that he submitted to magazines; usually to be rejected. Success came in 1898 when his first novel, A Gentleman from Indiana was accepted for publication by S.S. McClure of NYC. After the success of A Gentleman , Tarkington entered into his first marriage, with Laurel Louise Fletcher, in 1902.

Penrod: His Complete Story
by Booth Tarkington
Review by
Robert Wilfred Franson an omnibus novel, including:
Penrod and Sam
Penrod Jashber illustrated by Gordon Grant:
Doubleday, New York, 1931 590 pages March 2005
"Oh, Penrod! " Miss Lowe exclaimed. "Good gracious!" "I don't see why he came. He declines to dance — rudely, too!" "I don't think the little girls will mind that so much!" Miss Lowe said. "If you'd come to the dancing class some Friday with Amy and me, you'd understand why." They moved away. Penrod heard his name again mentioned between them as they went, and, though he did not catch the accompanying remark, he was inclined to think it unfavourable. He remained where he was, brooding morbidly. He understood that the government was against him, nor was his judgment at fault in this conclusion.
Booth Tarkington provides an engaging introduction to Penrod: His Complete Story , written in the 'Teens of the 20th Century: This book owes its existence to a lady connected by marriage with the writer, for at the time of her consent to become thus related she made virtually the condition that he should write something about a boy. ... ... the compilation has been made and is here displayed as the author's final word upon "a boy's doings in the days when the stable was empty but not yet rebuilt into a garage."
