Product Details


“In its literary aspect it is deftly done. Smoothly, earnestly, unctuously the author carries on his defense of hanging as a fine art and his plea for bigger and better and more frequent hangings, never for a moment forgetting his pose or dropping his disguise, and never giving the reader the least ground for suspecting his good faith…He has made for the crusade against capital punishment a very effective stroke.” —The New York Times

“A minor classic.” —Dylan Thomas

“Likely to upset the equanimity of upholders of capital punishment far more than any ponderous tome of “high explosive” argument or invective.” —The Observer
