Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. It’s the best book we’ve had.” Ernest Hemingway
“Patrick Fraley’s sensational reading of this American classic…should be recognized as an audio classic in its own right. Fraley recreates Huck, Jim, and the rest of the gang flawlessly, using an elastic voice, perfect diction, and bubbling enthusiasm. He has mastered the many dialects of this nineteenth-century text, making it easy to follow the story and appreciate Twain’s humor. Fraley also does some serious verbal gymnastics by changing character voices a half-dozen times within a two-minute span…[An] exceptional experience.” AudioFile
“A seminal work of American literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy…[This book] is essential to the understanding of the American soul.” Amazon.com, editorial review

Author Bio: Mark Twain

Author Bio: Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
