Twain and his biased opinions on Christians.

Funny books but why Twain thinks Christians are ALL hypocrites? For an author of much intelligence it surprised me how biased he was on his stereotypical ideais.

The Tragedy of Pudd’n Head Wilson

Twain is always a great read, so no surprise I thoroughly enjoyed rereading The Tragedy of Pudd’n Head Wilson. Twain effortlessly juxtaposes the ridiculous and the sublime, opposites and glaring contradictions. This great fun is made more fun by the strength of his prose, his command of the language and his wit. He is indeed America’s favorite humorist!

Puddinhead Wilson

Not as well known as many other Twain books, but just as entertaining and thought provoking.
