Newton Booth Tarkington (1869 - 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his Pulitzer Prize winning novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams, which also became a film by Orson Welles. He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once, along with William Faulkner and John Updike. Tarkington chronicled Midwestern American life and the changes wrought by the economic boom times following the Civil War and up to World War I.
A comedy of narcissism by the renown humorist.
