Forlagets beskrivelse
A self-satisfied fool enthusiastically recounts his mundane achievements in this cult classic and comic gem. Sanctimonious Augustus Carp finds faults in everyone else, excusing his own deficiencies with unwitting hilarity. This spoof autobiography, originally published anonymously in 1924 and rediscovered decades later, was hailed by The New Yorker as "a sublime, ferocious farce."
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
"Meet our memoirist, Augustus Carp, a self-proclaimed "good man" who relishes every opportunity to condemn the weaknesses of others while excusing his own failings. In this spoof autobiography, the pompous narrator enthusiastically recounts his mundane achievements with unwitting hilarity, making frequent asides to bemoan the sins of lesser mortals. Much of the story's ironic humor derives from his delivery; the more seriously Carp takes himself, the more ridiculous he appears. This riotous fable is supported by a cast of delightfully eccentric and grotesque characters: Abraham Stool, manufacturer of the famous Adult Gripe Water; schoolteacher Mr. Beerthorpe, inevitably known to his charges as "Beery"; the Rev. Eugene Cake, author of such improving fiction as Gnashers of Teeth; and other memorable personalities. A cult classic and comic gem, the book was originally published anonymously in 1924 and rediscovered decades later, when its author was revealed as a genteel (and discreet) London physician. Thisedition features the splendidly droll illustrations by Punch artist Marjorie Blood from the original publication"--
