Description

The son of a free woman and the son of a slave woman are switched at birth. Is it nature or nurture that determines their character? Those Extraordinary Twins was written first as a satire, but the story of the two children and Pudd’nhead Wilson became such a large part of it that it was hived off as its own tragedy.
