Tarkington, Booth: Penrod Jashber (Illustrated). v1. 18 Mar 2013
by Booth Tarkington (1869 – 1946)
Illustrations by Gordon Grant (1875 – 1962)
First published 1929
From the author of The Magnificent Ambersons (winner of the 1919 Pulitzer Prize), Alice Adams (winner of the 1922 Pulitzer Prize), Seventeen, Penrod, Penrod and Sam; and many others.
Penrod Jashber continues the tales of Penrod and his friends, Sam, Herman, and Verman. Penrod’s hero-worship veers away from bandits and outlaws, and becomes focused on Private Detectives. He takes on the persona of George B. Jashber, Detective, and enlists his friends’ help in exposing Mr. Dade (his sister’s new suitor) as a crook. To use that hackneyed (but suitable) old phrase, hilarity ensues.
Color frontispiece and black-and-white chapter-head sketches.
Formatted punctuation and italics, corrected OCR errors. Cross-linked chapter titles to html Table of Contents.
Have fun with more Penrod!
