Mister Ron's Basement #877
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.
A family gives up city life for the natural beauties of suburban life, and pay particular attention to a pair of fruit trees in 'The Buell Cherry.'
Time: approx ten minutes
