Erious stranger who orchestrates a fraud embarrassing the hypocritical citizens of incorruptible Hadleyburg The novella is an exceptionally crafted work intertwining aevious and suspenseful plot with some of the wittiest Haylee dialogue Twain ever wrote And like the most masterful literature it subverts any notion of easy conclusion is Hadleyburg ruined or liberated Is the mysterious stranger Satan or a hero Is this a book of revenge or redemption One thing is clear This brilliant novella is a complex.
