Booth Tarkington's The Magnificent Ambersons is the epic story of an American family's traumatic tumble from the dizzying heights of fame and fortune.
A dynasty spanning three generations, the Ambersons' pre-eminence as society's elite is threatened—not only by a hungry new breed of industrial entrepreneurs—but from its own arrogance and greed. At the center of the story is George Amberson Minafer, the pampered but pitiful, scion of the clan upon whose shoulders the fate of the family fortune will be won...or lost.
At once an exciting chronicle of a family's rise to fortune and its tortured downfall, it is also a fascinating portrait of the forces that shaped American society.
