Description

"Superb...one of the best readings of a Mark Twain book to which I've ever listened, and I've listened to almost all of them. An energetic and remarkably impassioned narration that brings out the powerful emotions and ironies of one of Mark Twain's complex works and adds new dimensions."
--R. Kent Rasmussen, author, Mark Twain A to Z, audiobook reviewer for LibraryJournal.com�

American actor and Mark Twain interpreter Richard Henzel narrates the tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson: tale of Roxy, a beautiful and intelligent slave woman who successfully switches her baby with the master's own child, saving him from being "sold down the river," but starting a chain of surprising events that culminate in a gripping and dramatic courtroom finale. But of course, this is Mark Twain, so there is also plenty of rich humor as well in this small Missourian river town. Interesting fact: in his story Mark Twain introduces fingerprints as courtroom evidence years before they became recognized by U. S. courts.

FREE Bonus Audiobook! This download also includes Those Extraordinary Twins, unabridged--Mark Twain's "deleted scenes" from the his first draft of Puddnhead--is a hilarious farce centering on a pair of conjoined Italian twins--they sing, they play the piano (four-handed, of course), and they are very charming, but unfortunately they have markedly different views on religion, romance, and the abuse of alcohol!
