A Phoney in The Fifty Dollar Bill

- A Phoney in The Fifty Dollar Bill       In "The Fifty Dollar Bill" written by Donald Hall, the narrator of the story seems to be an honest man, but is he really.

He was always honest, until he realized he had something important that could be lost. The very beginning of the story starts with the narrator talking to us (the readers) about how honest he is....   [tags: The Fifty Dollar Bill]
