American life comes under the scrutiny of Mark Twains wit in this delightful collection of short stories. Here, he comments on politics, education, the media, religion, and literature. The true subject of Twains satire and burlesque is that strangest of all animals, the human being. In his novels, travel narratives, stories, essays, and sketches, Twain exposes such a variety of human foibles that one is left either laughing at the folly of human enterprise, blushing with shame at human behavior, or cursing the gods that would create such a silly animal. Twain does all three, often at the same time.
