For nearly two decades before Mark Twain published his finest novel,Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, he was refining his craft and winning tremendous popularity with his short stories and sketches. This richly entertaining and comprehensive collection presents sixty-five of the very best of Mark Twain’s short pieces, from the classic frontier sketch “The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” to the richly imaginative fable “Extract from Captain Stormfield’s Visit to Heaven.” Compiled by Pulitzer Prize–winning Twain scholar and biographer, Justin Kaplan, this collection represents some of Mark Twain’s wittiest and most insightful writing.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning Twain scholar presents a collection of sixty-six of the author's best short stories, including "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calavaras County," "A Curious Dream," and "Dick Baker's Cat."
