(5 Sterne; 5 Bewertungen)

This collection of articles came from Mark Twain's travels and experiences abroad. While many had been previously published, there also were many that had never before seen the light of day...which one reviewer said had never been Twain's intent for them, having consigned them to obscurity. With introductory essays by Brander Matthews and Albert Bigelow Paine, the book paints a clear picture of the complexity and wide variety of Samuel L. Clemens' thinking, where it originated and how it developed. (15 hr 51 min)

Yay! A new Twain read by John Greenman!

(5 Sterne)

John Greenman is the absolute best reader of Mark Twain alive, and it is wonderful that he continues his project to record everything Twain put to paper. Thank you John. This book is an amazing insight into various aspects of Twain's writings, which would have been lost. From the fascinating introduction, which gives a helpful overview and timeline of Twain's more well known works; to the most wonderful descriptions of his life. That he was asked to 'collect' the Shah of Persia is in itself no mean feat, but his descriptions of the journey are invaluable snapshots of a age of luxury long gone. Highly recommended
