GUEST,Fretless Worst book (108* d) RE: Worst book 18 Sep 00


The absolutely BEST worst book (really an extended essay) is Mark Twain's A Cure for the Blues, in which Twain takes his candidate for worst book, trashes it gloriously line by line and page by page, then reprints the entire monstrosity (an early nineteenth century romantic novelette with the same title as Twain's essay). It is one of the few pieces of truly laugh out loud literature penned during the 19th cent.
