All of it is vintage Twain: sharp, witty, imaginative, and sometimes funny.
"Of all the writers who ever lived, perhaps Mark Twain had the most fun with what he had to say . . . the reader delighting in the Twain's-eye view of man's stupidity, arrogance, bombast and folly can almost hear an audible voice out of an immortal past -- the fond, rich voice of Mark Twain himself . . . unmistakably another treasure for us and for posterity." --CHICAGO SUN TIMES« less
