This is very funny. It's impossible to decide if Mencken is a feminist or a misogynist. Probably both. This book is still largely relevant.
Unreadable. Completely opaque.
Not very good. Lacks any real sense of eroticism. It's about an incestous family that forks anything that moves. Yet every one in the story treats this as perfectly normal. So any sense that this behavior is deviant or erotic is lost completely. My guess is that this was written merely to shock Victorian morality. Inferior to most amateur porn stories you'll find on the net. Interesting, perhaps, to philologists.
Very poor. Not funny at all. Even the Twain stories. Don't bother. I can't imagine what the original editor was thinking. Did past generations think these stories were funny? I can't believe that.
