Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

This delightful collection of lesser-known gems by Mark Twain begins with the story of a town called Hadleyburg, which prides itself on the honesty of its citizens. One day a citizen of Hadleyburg offends a stranger passing through, who vows to take his revenge by revealing just how corruptible the sanctimonious town really is. Twain is at his best here, poking fun at common hypocrisy as the self-satisfied pillars of the community are done in by their own greed.

Benedict Lim

Why would the man exact his revenge on the whole town, what did the nineteen ever done to him to deserve his revenge, it was just one man of the town who offended him and none of the nineteen was him. The man is the more guilty in this story.
