Mister Ron's Basement #891
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 comment on a young woman's photograph begins a fascinating conversation in 'Miss Tyndall's Picture.'
Time: approx ten minutes
