  • The Algonquin Round Table New Yorkby Kevin Fitzpatrick; Anthony Melchiorri

    Lyons Press 2015; US$ 23.99

    "That is the thing about New York," wrote Dorothy Parker in 1928. "It is always a little more than you had hoped for. Each day, there, is so definitely a new day." Now you can journey back there, in time, to a grand city teeming with hidden bars, luxurious movie palaces, and dazzling skyscrapers. In these places, Dorothy Parker and her cohorts in... more...

  • Mark Twain and the Communityby Thomas Blues

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Throughout his career Mark Twain viewed the relations between the individual and his community with mixed feelings, and this book explores both the ambiguities of Twain's attitude and their effect upon his fiction. In the earlier novels -- most notably The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn -- the protagonist enjoys a dual position... more...

  • Mark Twain and the Bibleby Allison Ensor

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Mark Twain enthusiasts will welcome this study of the great writer's attitude toward the Bible -- and of the influence of Holy Writ upon both the man and the artist. While the theological beliefs of Twain have been well documented, Mr. Ensor's study is the first to consider only his familiarity with the Bible and the extensive use of it in his writings.... more...

  • Mark Twain And The Southby Arthur G. Pettit

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The South was many things to Mark Twain: boyhood home, testing ground for manhood, and the principal source of creative inspiration. Although he left the South while a young man, seldom to return, it remained for him always a haunting presence, alternately loved and loathed. To follow his changing attitudes toward the South and its people is to observe... more...

  • A Family Sketch and Other Private Writingsby Mark Twain; Benjamin Griffin

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 25.95

    This book publishes, for the first time in full, the two most revealing of Mark Twain?s private writings. Here he turns his mind to the daily life he shared with his wife Livy, their three daughters, a great many servants, and an imposing array of pets.

  • Mark Twainby Jr. Harold H. Kolb

    University Press of America 2014; US$ 99.99

    Twain is America?s best known humorous writer, yet many commentators have thought of humor as merely an attractive surface feature of Twain?s writings. Kolb shows that humor is at the center of Twain?s talent, his successes, and his limitations, and it is as a humorist that he is best understood. more...

  • The Mythologizing of Mark Twainby Sara Davis; Philip D. Beidler

    University of Alabama Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Readers of Mark Twain seldom doubt his genius, but defining that genius and locating its source continue to challenge students of American literature. Equally elusive is an explanation of the intriguing phenomenon of Twain as a mythic figure, both shaper and embodier of an American mythos. Perhaps no single critical approach can adequately... more...

  • Mark Twain on Common Senseby Mark Twain; Stephen Brennan

    Skyhorse Publishing 2014; US$ 9.95

    Revered as one of America?s greatest humorists and author of the “Great American Novel? ( The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ), the words of Samuel Langhorne Clemens—more commonly known as Mark Twain—resonate as strongly today as they did when he wrote them more than a century ago. A close friend of Nikola Tesla and heralded by William Faulkner as... more...
