The Idiot is anything but, yet his fellow boarders at Mrs. Smithers-Pedagog’s home for single gentlemen see him as such. His brand of creative thought is dismissed as foolishness yet it continues to get under their skin, because when you’re beneath contempt you can say what you please. – This is the first of John Kendrick Bang’s “Idiot” books and was published by Harper and Brothers in 1895. (Summary by Gregg Margarite)

This is good satire on aspects of American life, and gives relief from the usual British class snobbery that we get so often in these old books. I found it quite amusing to listen to while doing mundane chores. The language is down-to-earth, and the narrator gives it the required twist of irony.

Difficult to get into, the narrator wasn’t for me and I couldn’t get past the second chapter.
