Mister Ron's Basement #821
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 young lad relating his battle with germs. It's called 'Hickey Boy and the Grip.'
Time: approx ten minutes
