    Houghton was a young boy working in his father's Mississippi drugstore when he met his future wife, Annabelle. The two went on to not only raise four children but become one of the most well-known families of their time, thanks to Houghton's invention of Panola Cola, the country's first major soft drink company. Now an aging Houghton must decide whom to leave the company to. His eldest son, Montgomery, is an aspiring politician who never recovered from the horrors of WWI. Twins Ramsey and Lance are too busy competing with each other to consider taking on the responsibilities of running a company. And youngest son Harold, who is caring and kind, is hampered by a mental disability. Wright's (Play Pretty Blues, 2013) sweeping novel introduces an ambitious and passionate family building their lives and creating a dynasty over the course of a century. Wonderfully written, with fascinating, deeply memorable characters, American Pop is a vivid reminder of the power of a family to build an empire and move a nation. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
