Novelist, editor, and Mark Twain scholar Charles Neider (1915-2001) edited The Selected Letters of Mark Twain, The Travels of Mark Twain, and Life As I Find It: A Treasury of Mark Twain Rarities.Review:
Delightful and valuable.... Chosen for their humor and human interest, the speeches vary from old time standards to lesser-known items (two appear for the first time).... These speeches provide a view of Twain's public personality, as well as his ideas about literature, current events, and some of his favorite subjects from cigars to Joan of Arc. (CHOICE)
Mark Twain, Plymouth Rock and the Pilgrims reminds us how talented the humorist was as a speaker, starting with his first lecture, in San Francisco andon the Sandwich Island (Hawaii). Here is a collection of his most witty speeches. (Signals)
