The Idiot by John Kendrick Bangs (1895)

When I’m reading a great book, I find myself repeating over and over in my mind-“Damn this book is good.” This book was no exception. The idiot is an annoying but insightful fellow. He is argumentative about every and any subject to the frustration of his peers. His stage is the breakfast table. Here he needles the teacher and the owner of the house. He upsets the bibliomaniac and befriends the poet. But most of all the idiot reminds me of myself. Naturally argumentative with a touch for the bizarre and comic. The only difference is that the idiot is outspoken and doesn’t care what people think. Have a laugh and read The Idiot.
