Descripción de editorial

George Ade's greatest recognition came with Fables in Slang (1899), a national best-seller that was followed by a weekly syndicated fable and by 11 other books of fables. The fables, which contained only a little slang, were, rather, examples of the vernacular.

The critic August Nemo selected seven short stories from this essential author of American literature:

The Fable of the Preacher Who Flew His Kite, But Not Because He Wished to Do So

The Fable of the Two Mandolin Players and His Willing Performer

The Fable of the Parents Who Tinkered with the Offspring

The Fable of the Man Who Didn't Care for Storybooks

The Fable of the Kid Who Shifted His Ideal

The Fable of How Uncle Brewster was Too Shifty for the Tempter

The Fable of Lutie, the False Alarm, and How She Finished about the Time that She Started
