Overview

Mark Twain's San Francisco by Mark Twain, Edward Jump

Cultural Writing. Jumping frogs, high society, the Emperor Norton and the stray dogs Bummer and Lazarus who followed on his heels — nothing escaped Mark Twain's scrutiny or his acerbic wit. Editor Bernard Taper has gathered together a heady selection of newspaper articles, correspondence, poetry and short stories, that are humorous — sometimes exasperating and controversial, but always engaging.
