Booth Tarkington was an American novelist and dramatist from
Indiana best known for his Pulitzer Prize winning novels "Alice
Adams" and "The Magnificent Ambersons," which also became a film by
Orson Welles. Tarkington chronicled Midwestern American life, and
the changes wrought by the economic boom times following the Civil
War and up to World War I.
"The Flirt" was the first of his novels to be serialized in the
"Saturday Evening Post," The book contained characters and themes
that paved the way for the Penrod stories, a group of tales drawn
from the author's boyhood memories of growing up in Indiana.
Cora, the title character, is the first choice of all the men in
the small mid-western town. She knows this and is a like a kid in a
candy store. She constantly flirts with one man and then runs to
another when the excitement wears off.
