Not Twain's best work.
|Mark Twain (1835-1910)|
The essay focuses on the lost art of lying. Twain discusses different kinds of lies, situations in which people lie and why all lies are not bad.
The essay is sometimes funny but mostly sounds like an old stand up routine about good lies and bad lies.
The Kindle version is very short - only 86 locations which equals about 12 regular pages.
I rate this essay 3 stars out of 5.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: On the Decay of the Art of Lying by Mark Twain.
