Publisher Description

The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg is a short story by Mark Twain and was published in 1899. It tells the story of the destruction of a small town (known as Hadleyburg), which is known far and wide as an honest and moral community. The people of the town enjoy the reputation of being honest. They isolated themselves and their babies from outsiders; when their children are still babies, keeping them sheltered from any kind of temptation. However, a mysterious stranger - who has a grudge against the town during the past year for an unnamed, unrequited offence – decides to get his revenge by corrupting the town and proves that its nineteen most well-respected members are immoral and dishonest. He gives a sack - which contains $40,000 gold - to the bank cashier and leaves him a note that explains how the bank cashier should spend it. This version of the book is translated by Farideh Eizadi to Persian (Farsi) and narrated by Bahram Sarvarinejad. The Persian version of The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg’s audiobook is published by Maktub worldwide.

About Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
