Publisher Description

The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today is a novel by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner first published in 1873. It satirizes greed and political corruption in post-Civil War America. Although not one of Twain's best-known works, it has appeared in more than 100 editions since its original publication. Twain and Warner originally had planned to issue the novel with illustrations by Thomas Nast. The book is remarkable for two reasons—it is the only novel Twain wrote with a collaborator, and its title very quickly became synonymous with graft, materialism, and corruption in public life.

As true today as when it was written.

Mark Twains writing shines in this book about Washington, lobbyists, high society and life in general. It could have been written in 2022 as easily as the late 1800’s. The more things change the more they stay the same, for better or worse.
