MARK TWAIN: WILD HUMORIST OF THE WEST

by | Read by McAvoy Layne

Biography & Memoir • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

Twain's humor is always droll. (On the topic of polygamy he reminds us that the Bible says "No man shall serve two masters.") Layne, who compiled this one-man show from Twain's writings, has just the right touch to bring this legendary author alive. And the audience laughter and interaction from this 1995 performance help the audio experience. The first half consists of autobiographical stories, including how humorist Samuel L. Clemens took on the moniker "Mark Twain" and stories of his early life on the Mississippi. Layne then tells some of Twain's classic short stories (The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County for one) and takes questions from the audience.
