Mister Ron's Basement #793
Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.'
The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.
Today's tale concerns a sophisticated book salesman and a straight talking Chicago businessman. It's called 'Tall-Stoy.'
Time: approx seven minutes
