Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Howells and Twain were pals for 40 years. In 1910, Howells published this collection of anecdotes and observations about his friend gleaned from firsthand experience. The book also includes Howells's reviews of several of Twain's books. A pleasant sojourn for Twain fans.
