George Mills

(1982)
A novel by

 
An ambitious&#130; digressive&#130; and endlessly entertaining account of the thousand-year history of the George Millses&#130; GEORGE MILLS is the antithesis to the typical Horatio Alger story. Since the First Crusade&#130; there has always been a George Mills&#130; who&#151;despite his best efforts&#151;is unable to improve his position in life or that of his descendants. Instead&#130; all the George Millses are forced to accept their lot as true blue-collar workers&#130; serving important personages in a series of odd jobs ranging from horse talker in a salt mine to working as a furniture mover in contemporary St. Louis. But the latest in the long line of George Millses may also be the last&#130; as he obsesses about his family&#146;s history and determines that he will be the one to break this doomed cycle of servitude.
