Mark Twain’s Voice

Today is the anniversary of Mark Twain’s birth. Mark Twain was born in 1835, in Florida, Missouri.
He has a new book out! Not bad for someone who died a hundred years ago.
Mark Twain was as popular in his time for his public performances as he was for his sarcastic remarks on the printed page. Mark Twain was a celebrity, not simply some guy to be hailed by future professors for two or three books that became part of the canon.
