The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg (The Art of the Novella) - Mark Twain

Short novella- a bit of a morality play about a town too full of itself, and how its coveted reputation was undone by the hypocrisy of its citizens.


One thought: the writing isn't as folksy and affected as most of Twain's works. No extreme accents or Hee-Haw slang in this one. To my mind, that's a good thing, but those gimmicks are part of Twain's popularity, so make up your own mind.
