Our Mr. Wrenn, the Romantic Adventures of a Gentle Man

Our Mr. Wrenn, the Romantic Adventures of a Gentle Man by Sinclair Lewis
By: (1885-1951)

"At thirty-four Mr. Wrenn was the sales-entry clerk of the Souvenir Company. He was always bending over bills and columns of figures at a desk behind the stock-room. He was a meek little bachelor--a person of inconspicuous blue ready-made suits, and a small unsuccessful mustache." Mr. Wrenn, however has a rich inner life embellished by his own imagination. When he comes into a modest inheritance, he feels he ought to learn to get out and wander a bit, and then his education begins. He finds life more "interesting", perhaps than he had "imagined". . . (Introduction by Don Jenkins)

The tale of Mr. Wrenn is delightful, funny, and heartwarming. Mr. Wrenn goes on a real journey in more ways than one! I found myself really relating, rooting for this plucky little guy. Thanks so much to Sinclair Lewis for his wonderful energetic reading which really added a lot to my enjoyment of this book :)
