Samuel Butler's autobiographical fiction account of a harsh upbringing and troubled adulthood satirizes Victorian hypocrisy and indicts Victorian bourgeois values as personified in five generations of the Pontifex family and in its chronicle of the life and loves of Ernest Pontifex. Along the way, it offers a powerful indictment of nineteenth-century England's major institutions.

A great book! The beginning is not indicitive of the body of the story so press through the first few chapters to get to the good stuff!
