Penguin Island

by Anatole France

France manages to craft an epic comedic tale tracing the rise and fall of a civilization that, in truth, could be any Western nation - but is most certainly the French Republic. Military, religion, politics and even burgeoning socialism are lambasted in this twisted little story that begins with a mistaken baptism and the fallible bureaucracy of Heaven.
