Gilded Age novel by Mark Twain & Charles Dudley Warner  "The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today" [1873] by Mark Twain & Charles Dudley Warner
The novel satirizes land speculation and political corruption of the early 1870s, and the title became the common term for the excesses of the era. Twain and Warner were friends & neighbors in Hartford, Connecticut and began the book when they were challenged at dinner by their wives to write a better novel than the ladies were reading. Twain wrote the first 11 chapters, Warner the next twelve; later sections alternated, with the two men collaborating on the conclusion.
