ALICE ADAMS….IS THE STORY OF A FAMILY WHO COULD NOT QUITE KEEP UP WITH THE WEALTHY FAMILIES IN TOWN…BUT DID EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO APPEAR THAT THEY COULD!! ALL ABOUT LIFE’S CHOICES! 245 PAGES IN PRINT! A GOOD READ!!
An upbeat and at times humorous story about a middle class family and their two early 20-year-old children ( one boy and one girl ). The girl, Alice Adams, is the focus of the story, as she struggles to be liked by the town’s society folks. She doesn’t have the social prestige nor the money to attract many beaus.
This leads to turmoil, and Mrs. Adams tells her husband to leave the mediocre paying job he’s had all his life to start his own company so they can be rich and pay their children “advantages”. He does this, after many trepidations, but the basis of his newfound business is a stolen glue formula from his previous employer. This ultimately leads to his demise.
There is a bit more to this story, but all in all, it is a story of class envy, snobbery, and greed. Tarkington’s main point, however, seems to be that every dark tunnel of life ultimately has some other exit that inevatibly lead to light — as even in the Adams’s darkest hour their was hope yet.
