Told by the Death's Head

by Mór Jókai

Take a good-sized scoundrel--with an imagination--condemn him to death on twenty-one charges; and, while the death penalty hangs above his head, command him to tell the story of his life in twenty-four chapters. The result will be as "Told by the Death's Head,"--exciting, incredible, with touches of grim humor, and more than a touch of burlesque; but, on the whole, a little wearisome, perhaps, to a public that has had a surfeit of such good things.
