This classic tragicomic tale from George Barr McCutcheon transforms everyone's favorite caviar-and-champagne dream into a soul-shaking test of mistrust and reckless spending Popular, good-looking, and enterprising, Montgomery Brewster is the toast of New York. While celebrating his twenty-fifth birthday among friends, Monty receives word that his grandfather has died. Before long, New York is abuzz with the news. When Monty inherits $1 million from his affluent grandfather, out comes a parade of would-be advisers and so-called inventors who promise the world to the skeptical millionaire. Just as Monty begins to adjust to his new situation, yet another portentous note comes out of the blue: an equally wealthy, exceedingly eccentric uncle, James T. Sedgwick, has left Monty an additional $7 million. But there's a catch: In order to exact revenge on Monty's grandfather from the grave, Sedgwick's will decrees that, in order to inherit the money, his nephew must fritter away every cent his grandfather toiled to save-and he can tell no one. George Barr McCutheon's brilliant story of fortunes squandered and gained, love lost and found, and one wild spending spree will delight contemporary readers. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
