Mark Twain’s Tips on Writing Well

4 Comments

  1. Hi,

    Can anybody recommend some Mark Twain for a 46-year-old Englishman to read? I've never read any of his work before, but as he is always seems to turn up (especially as quotations), I've figured it's about time I read something of his.

    Any suggestions?

  3. In all honesty, I've never read anything but Twain's literary commentary on other writers, which is hilarious and worth the effort if you can find a copy. The Mysterious Stranger, however, is on my To Be Read list. The typical Twain books people read include A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
