With an Introduction by Richard A. Lupoff


Surinam Turtle Press #31


Written in 1902, this novel about a group of amateur social engineers was far ahead of its time, anticipating the world of "reality" shows that demonstrate how little we've learned about interpersonal relationships in the succeeding 110 years. In his introduction, author Richard A. Lupoff places the story in context and offers a few opinions of his own about the propriety of trying to manipulate the affairs of your fellow man. The book is a satire on manners and don't be surprised or dismayed if you find yourself in its insightful pages.
