John Ames Mitchell (1844–1918) was a publisher, architect, artist and novelist who, being a Rennaisance man also co-founded the original Life Magazine, and from the perch of personal success, penned this novel, dedicated to those happy philosophers of Social Darwinism, who found themselves annoyed by the occasional mutterings from the owners of empty stomachs, from the fathers & mothers of fading children, from the overworked and underemployed who made discordant and unwlecome music for their cultivated ears. Very 2014 that.
