A series of readings from the great misanthrope. By the time Twain was in his fifties, he had soured on a good deal of American life. Even Sawyer and Finn were set in the 1840's not the Gilded Age of Twain's greatest fame. But they're part of Americana, and often funny. Enjoy! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088690272X, Audio Cassette)

Now you can listen to the live performance that brings Mark Twain to life -- voice, celebrated wit, and all. One of the most stunning successes in recent show-business history, Hal Holbrook's brilliant one-man show has played to sold-out audiences in theaters around the U.S. and abroad, and appeared on television. In this extraordinary theatrical achievement, Holbrook becomes truly transformed, recreating the incisive mind and scalding tongue of the legendary man from Missouri. 2 cassettes.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:20:02 -0400)

Hal Holbrook's landmark one-man show is most startling in the freshness of Twain's stinging commentary on politics, the art of lying, religion, partriotism, slavery and man's notion that he is the Creator's pet.
