History of My Own Times, Or, The Life and Adventures of William Otter, Sr., Comprising a Series of Events, and Musical Incidents Altogether Original

★★☆☆☆

Review:

The memoirs of a 19th-century psychopath, a laboring man who eventually gained elected office. Otter has a violent sense of humor that makes his “musical incidents” pretty disturbing from a modern perspective.
