Mark Twain: reporter, author, critic, humorist, lecturer… in today’s vernacular the first American Super Star. By his 60th birthday he had reached a celebrity status previously reserved for presidents, generals, and barn burning preachers. Ernest Hemingway said “all American literature comes from one book…by Mark Twain…Huckleberry Finn.” He was the “toast of the town” in Europe as well as at home and responded to this notoriety by speaking and lecturing worldwide.
All of Twain’s books are still in print today and continue to attract readers by the millions, yet it is his speaking prowess-- his cutting critiques, astute observations, tall tales, and humorous antidotes, delivered with that mid western drawl and perfect timing, that epitomize the man…the Super Star.
