A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court - Penguin Classics
Author: Mark Twain, Justin Kaplan
The original American satirist Cracked on the head by a crowbar in nineteenth-century Connecticut, Hank Morgan wakes to find himself in King Arthur's England. Branded by Twain's aptitude for broad comedy and biting social satire, the grim truths of Twain's Camelot-fear, injustice, ignorance-resound as clearly now as when it was written

Twain's satirical humor is always a treat. His long asides make it difficult to follow the story sometimes. Nevertheless it's worth reading.

Interesting take of time travel. The main character does finally learn that the "ugly American" (in any era) is not a good person and reforms his ways. Plenty of irony and satire included.
