The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg, and Other Stories is Mark Twain's classic collection of short fiction and essays. Published in a variety of places, including Cosmpolitan, Harpers Magazine, and the Century, the collection is a must read for any Mark Twain fan or lover of classic American literature. The collection includes pieces such as My First Lie, and How I Got Out of It, How to Tell a Story, and Concerning the Jews. The Collection also includes Twain's personal commentary about his first published work in Private History of the "Jumping Frog" Story. The title piece is almost a novella at 85 words, and was critically received upon its publication in Harpers Magazine in 1899. The story is about a seemingly incorruptible American town, Hadleyburg, filled with kind and honest citizens trained to avoid worldly temptations. When a stranger visits the town, he feels affronted by the townspeople and vows ultimate revenge. Can the incorruptible town withstand the ultimate temptation... the promise of riches and gold? Though lesserknown than his major novels, including Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, the story is now wellregarded and has been read and reread for generations. With fifteen pieces in all, The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg, and Other Stories is an eclectic assortment of critical observations about American life, sardonic views of foreign culture, humorous sketches and anecdotes, and of course, tales of adventure. As always, Twains witty prose and original insights make the collection very difficult to put down.
