The timeless tales by the "father of our national literature…"

It's impossible to overestimate the influence – and ongoing influence – of Mark Twain. As the African-American comic Dick Gregory put it, “[Twain] was so far ahead of his time that he shouldn't even be talked about on the same day as other people.”
Twain's uniquely American language and style, profound insights into the character of the new nation, and rebellious irreverence and opposition to injustice made him, as Eugene O’Neill wrote, “the true father of all American literature,” and an author cherished around the world, especially by other writers.

And while the author of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is justifiably famous for his novels, Twain was first and foremost a master of the short story.

Now, Easton Press presents: The Complete Short Stories of Mark Twain, an exclusive leather-bound Heirloom Edition.

“Mark Twain was the first truly American writer, and all of us since are his heirs.” - William Faulkner


This grand volume presents sixty stories that span Twain's career, from the piece that won him his first fame, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” the tall tale of an inveterate gambler outwitted by his own greed, to Twain's final work, “The Mysterious Stranger,” a philosophical fable in which Satan visits a superstitious and ignorant village.
These stories reveal Twain in all his astonishing variety -- the pure entertainer and comic genius, the ferocious satirist, the provocative skeptic and iconoclast, the sentimental husband and father – but always the master storyteller experimenting with new forms and exploring the still familiar voices, realities, and contradictions of American life.

And all show Twain practicing what he called “a worthy trade” devoted to “the deriding of shams, the exposure of pretentious falsities, the laughing of stupid superstitions out of existence,” and being “the natural friend of human rights and human liberties.”
