Un Morso Du Pang By Edna Ferber

The men go to war and the women stay behind. The men are exposed to a bigger world and the women worry that they will be forgotten. This story is set during World War I. There was a popular tune at the time. “How you gonna keep them down on the farm after they’ve seen Paree?” The story title is a transliteration of French for “a piece of bread”. Tessie’s young man is learning French in the military and Tessie can feel him growing away.
