The Idiot

The Idiot is anything but, yet that is how his fellow boarders at Mrs. Smithers Pedagog's home for single gentlemen see him. His brand of creative thought is dismissed as foolishness. And yet, it starts to get under their skin, because when you are beneath contempt, you can say what you please. Funny, clever, poignant and as relevant today as it was a hundred years ago, this is the first of John Kendrick Bangs’ 'Idiot' books.

John Kendrick Bangs (1862-1922) was an American author, humorist and editor of "Life" and "Harper" magazines. Bangs is the creator of the modern Bangsian fantasy, which is the school of fantasy writing where the plot is wholly or partially set in the afterlife.
