“In his lifetime, Mark Twain was perhaps as renowned for his public speaking as he was for his writing. . . . Since we, unfortunately, have no recordings of what he said, the speeches themselves are invaluable—and Fatout’s book is an incredible collection of what has survived.”—John C. Bird, editor, The Mark Twain Annual

Originally published in 1976 and reissued in 2006 after many years out of print, Mark Twain Speaking assembles Twain’s lectures, after-dinner speeches, and interviews from 1864 to 1909. Explanatory notes describe occasions, identify personalities, and discuss techniques of Twain’s oral craftsmanship. A chronology listing date, place, and title of speech or type of engagement completes the collection.
