Bangs, John K.: The Idiot: An Omnibus. v1. 09 Jan 2019

The Idiot: An omnibus
John Kendrick Bangs (1862–1922)

In this sequence of humorous observations, flights of fancy, wry social commentary, and doggerel verse, a boarding-house resident habitually deflates the pretensions and flawed philosophies of his fellow boarders. They, of course, insist that he is an idiot spouting nonsense.

This collection includes the six books Coffee and Repartee, The Idiot, The Idiot at Home, The Inventions of the Idiot, The Genial Idiot, and Half Hours With the Idiot.

John Kendrick Bangs (May 27, 1862 – January 21, 1922) was an American author, humorist, satirist, editor and lecturer.
