The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg

Written by Mark Twain

Narrated by Scott Peterson

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars



About this audiobook

This classic tale and superb short story by Mark Twain is a funny yet blistering indictment of political hypocrisy.
A mysterious stranger is treated badly by the town of Hadleyburg-the town that proclaims itself "the most honest and upright town in the region." Through an ingenious sting operation, the stranger sets out to expose Hadleyburg's leading citizens and reveal their greedy, deceitful natures.

Twain's burning wit and insight into political posturing and civic cowardice seem more pertinent than ever.

Mark Twain

Mark Twain, who was born Samuel L. Clemens in Missouri in 1835, wrote some of the most enduring works of literature in the English language, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc was his last completed book—and, by his own estimate, his best. Its acquisition by Harper & Brothers allowed Twain to stave off bankruptcy. He died in 1910.
