Mister Ron's Basement #828

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 man who desperately wants to acquire a particular collection of books, and his hard-hearted wife who draws the line on his buying it in 'The Set of Poe.'

Time: approx eleven minutes
