"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." -- Mark Twain
Mark Twain (1835-1910) was the first American writer to capture the unique and colorful vernacular of his country's populace. Instead of striving to perfect any particular literary form, Twain strove to precisely imprint on paper the colloquial speech, mannerisms and experiences of the American people.

Mark Twain's short stories are moving, funny, clever and poignant. He is a master of the humorous story.

Skip the first CD or so (the "on the Mississippi" part) till your hooked. Then I would recommend going back to it about half way through the rest so you can have a nice finish. My favorite parts are about Helen Keller, which we listened to while visiting her home, wonderful experience, his mother, and "The Blue Jay" (so wonderful to hear and beautifully read here by WALTER BRENNEN what a treat!) Loved having the different readers!
