Ade Package
collects the best of George Ade’s fables in slang, written in the early 1900s. Mark Twain was a fan. So were P.G. Wodehouse, Ring Lardner, H.L. Mencken and S.J. Perelman. Ade was a humorist, a satirist, a keen observer of rural and urban life, and a master of the well-turned phrase. “If what Mother said was true, then Effie’s Voice was a good deal better than it sounded.” “His Brain felt as if someone had played a Mean Trick on him and substituted a Side Order of Cauliflower.” (Wodehouse even quoted that line in one of his Bertie and Jeeves stories.) Great fun.
