A hilarious tale of one man’s struggle for self improvement and a witty satire of pretension

Orphaned at an early age, raised by his aunt and uncle, and apprenticed for seven years to a draper, Artie Kipps is stunned to discover upon reading a newspaper advertisement that he is the grandson of a wealthy gentleman - and the inheritor of his fortune.

But as he soon discovers, becoming a 'true gentleman' is neither as easy nor as desirable as it at first appears.
