This story is not my life! Though, the odd scene is derived from it: Wearing a cape all over Toronto without knowing it. My Dad's girlfriend's kid saying, "I really like the roost beef. This... More > is great roost beef. I love the roost beef, Al." Then my Dad saying, "Erik, I believe it's pronounced...pork tenderloin." So, yeah, this book is pretty darn funny. It also includes one of the most creative gimmicks in modern writing. I'm not lying. Without giving too much away, it involves three-way-sex and a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' spoof. Spoofs, there's a brief Faulkner parody as well. This book has just about everything...even paragraphs.< Less
A Book of Scoundrels (Illustrated) By Charles Whibley
eBook (ePub): $1.99
There are other manifestations of greatness than to relieve suffering or to wreck an empire. Julius Cæsar and John Howard are not the only heroes who have smiled upon the world. In the supreme... More > adaptation of means to an end there is a constant nobility, for neither ambition nor virtue is the essential of a perfect action. How shall you contemplate with indifference the career of an artist whom genius or good guidance has compelled to exercise his peculiar skill, to indulge his finer aptitudes? A masterly theft rises in its claim to respect high above the reprobation of the moralist. The scoundrel, when once justice is quit of him, has a right to be appraised by his actions, not by their effect; and he dies secure in the knowledge that he is commonly more distinguished, if he be less loved, than his virtuous contemporaries.< Less

More > (/ˈmoʊpəˌsɑːnt/; French: [ɡid(ə) mopasɑ̃]; 5 August 1850 – 6 July 1893) was a French writer, remembered as a master of the short story form, and as a representative of the naturalist school of writers, who depicted human lives and destinies and social forces in disillusioned and often pessimistic terms.Maupassant was a protégé of Flaubert and his stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouements (outcomes). Many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, describing the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught up in events beyond their control, are permanently changed by their experiences. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_de_Maupassant< Less
