- by admin
In The Big Story Ever Telled, The Bigger Story Never Lies, published by HarperCollins, a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jane Mayer, and co-authored by The Atlantic’s editor-in-chief Ben Smith, The story behind the book begins with a small town, in the midst of the Great Depression, that is haunted by the ghost of its past.
In the midst is the first girl to attend a boarding school, the last of its kind, the only one in the country to have its doors opened for women.
The girl, Alice (Mayer), is the daughter of the late poet and socialite Henry Mays (Smith), and the boy, Tom (Meyer), is her best friend.
In order to help them make sense of their pasts, they take on jobs and classes that they cannot afford, and work together to navigate their ways through the town and its residents.
They make friends, they find new friends, and they build bridges to each other’s lives.
Their story begins to change as their lives are rocked by the Great Panic of 1837, when millions of people fled the cities and towns they loved for the countryside and the plains.
The story changes, too, as the town’s once bustling streets are filled with workers, laborers, and people looking for work.
Alice and Tom struggle to find work as they become involved in the labor movement, but in the process, they uncover an intricate conspiracy between the townspeople and the town bank.
The women of The Big Show, the town, are struggling with the same questions as the men.
As they struggle to cope with the changes, they also become the people who bring the Great People’s Panic to an end.
Alice, Tom, and the rest of the people of The Show meet a mysterious, charismatic, and powerful figure named Sam, and he offers them a solution to the Great Problem.
As the story unfolds, The Show’s themes of economic change, the nature of work, and class conflict become more apparent.
