These two fine productions of some of Twain's lesser-known pieces do justice to an author whose work seems perennial. The short, humorous essays and speeches collected in Fenimore Cooper to Mem- branous Croup are enhanced by Thomas Becker's fine reading. "McWilliams and the Burglar Alarm" is surprisingly contemporary in this age of electronic security devices. "Artemus Ward" will remind one of all the bureaucratic memos that cross one's desk. A Double-Barreled Detective Story is a twisting, funny tale of a young woman seeking revenge through her son. This tale also features Sherlock Holmes matching skills with the very American Archy Stillman, the son of our heroine. Twain is an American original, and his work deserves to be heard. While this probably won't be a best seller, it is a worthwhile addition to larger libraries.
