The title novella in this sparkling collection is one of Twain's most deadly satires, about civic vice disguised as virtue and its devasting consequences. Any volume of Twain's shorter pieces makes excellent reading. Here was a writer who could make any conceivable subject entertaining and often profound. Also included are "My Debut as a Literary Person," "The Esquimau Maiden's Romance," "A Double-Barreled Detective Story," a notable SHERLOCK HOLMES parody, and many more.
