Mister Ron's Basement #912
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.
In today's tale, the tenants of a boarding house keep track of the events across the street at another boarding house in 'Our Private Romance.'
Time: approx nine minutes
