"The Rube"


“It is a truth universally acknowledged that it’s always some hick from a small town who tries the hardest to become a big-city sophisticate.”

The Rube, by Horace P. Sternwall (Argyle Books “paperback original”, 1952; one printing of 1,200 copies; never republished).

I've heard this line quoted somewhere. Big-city sophisticates seem in short supply these days.
