How To Tell A Story, and Other Essays

Gelesen von John Greenman

(4,5 Sterne; 5 Bewertungen)

The complete collection of works using this title. Other versions, including the Project Gutenberg version, have been radically shortened. Mark Twain published several collections of his short stories and essays. This collection, like the others, dramatically demonstrates the eclectic nature of his work and the depth of his humanistic thinking. Each essay stands alone. Listeners will find many instances where modern times come to mind. (John Greenman) (12 hr 12 min)
