about this item

A self-satisfied fool enthusiastically recounts his mundane achievements in this cult classic and comic gem. Sanctimonious Augustus Carp finds faults in everyone else, excusing his own deficiencies with unwitting hilarity. This spoof autobiography, originally published anonymously in 1924 and rediscovered decades later, was hailed by The New Yorker as "a sublime, ferocious farce."
