The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio
I just finished listening to the audiobook of The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio. It was an interesting book and very different from the stuff I usually read and listen.
It's a slice of American life from the 50's and 60's about a mother of ten, who made money by writing jingles and contests of 25 words or less for a living. She was an early advertising copywriter and did it to survive both monetarily and mentally. Amazing and sweet story.
Apparently there is a movie based on the book too. Now, I'm interested.
