Summary
The child of immigrants, Houghton Forster has always wanted more - from when he was a boy in Mississippi working at his father's drugstore to the moment he laid eyes on his wife, Annabelle Teague, a Southern belle of aristocratic lineage, to his invention of the fizzy drink that would transform him into the founder of the Panola Cola Company and entice an enterprising nation entering a hopeful new age. Now the heads of an American family spoken about in the same breath as the Hearsts and the Rockefellers, Houghton and Annabelle raise their four children with the expectation they'll become world leaders. The burden of greatness falls early on eldest son Montgomery, a successful politician who has never recovered from the horrors of the Great War. His younger siblings Ramsey and Lance are rivals not only in wit and beauty, but in their carelessness with the lives and hearts of others. Their brother Harold, gentle and caring is slowed by a mental disability and later generations seem equally plagued by misfortune, forcing Houghton to seriously consider who should control the company after he's gone. Moving from 1870s through to the 1980s American Pop explores how nostalgia can manipulate cultural memory and the stories we choose to tell about ourselves
