BOOTH TARKINGTON
Signature signed and dated in his home town, Indianapolis, in 1939
Signature: "Booth Tarkington/Indianapolis, March 5, 1939", 3¾x1¼ slip. affixed to 4¾x2¾ paper. mounted to, 5x3 index card. (3 surfaces). Typed caption on mounting sheet. American author Booth Tarkington (1869-1946) was awarded two of the first four Pulitzer Prizes in Fiction: (The Magnificent Ambersons, 1919; and, Alice Adams, 1922). His other novels include The Gentleman from Indiana, Penrod, Penrod and Sam, The Two Van Revels and Beasley's Christmas Party. Tarkington was known for his comical (and almost cynical) rendering of the Lost Generation that characterized the 1920s. Born to a middle class family in the Midwest, he immortalized that part of the U.S. and its class struggles in most of his works. Although best known for his writing, Tarkington also served as a Representative in the Indiana State House of Representatives (1903-1904). Although he traveled the world, Tarkington was born in Indianapolis, and died there, having set much of his fiction in Indiana.  Toned and lightly creased. Mounted residue and pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise fine condition.
