More information

A man of many firsts, Mark Twain ws the first author to use the typewriter, as well as the first person to have a telephone in his home (which no doubt made him the first person to swear at tech support!). He also patented the accordion file, the fountain pen, and adjustable suspenders. And when he published "deleted scenes" from "Pudd'nhead Wilson" as "Those Extraordinary Twins" he became the first publisher to include "bonus tracks" along with the finished work. I hope you get as many laughs listening to this little book as I did narrating it. This Mark Twain In Person Library recording is an approximation of Mark Twain's own voice, just as his family might have heard the story for the first time in the family library.
