American life comes under the scrutiny of Mark Twain's wit in this delightful collection of short stories. Here, he comments on politics, education, the media, religion, and literature. The true subject of Twain's satire and burlesque is that strangest of all animals, the human being.
Originally published in 1899, this book provoked a general uprising (from both sexes) in strenuous defence of their position and capacities. Bold, unsparing and witty attack on woman's stronghold in the home. Not-Politically-Correct but very Humoristic.
