Miss Susie Slagle's
Originally published in 1939, Miss Susie Slagle's spent half a year on the national best-seller lists, went through twenty-three hardcover printings, and became a major Hollywood motion picture produced by John Houseman. Now Augusta Tucker's beloved novel of Baltimore in the halcyon years before the Great War — and of the Johns Hopkins medical students who boarded at Miss Susie Slagle's house on Biddle Street — is reissued in the Maryland Paperback Bookshelf. Richly detailed and warmly nostalgic, Miss Susie Slagle's is about to charm a new generation of readers.
