Format: Kindle Edition
Stories collected here were written during some of the most productive writing years of Mark Twain's life, and were published in issues of The Atlantic during the years 1874-1880.

To first put these stories into context, Twain had not yet achieved his eventual great fame when his book "The Innocents Abroad" was published. It was reviewed by The Atlantic's third editor William Dean Howells in December of 1869. That review concluded with the paragraph:

"Under his nom de plume of Mark Twain, Mr. Clements is well known to the very large world of newspaper-readers; and this book ought to secure him something better than the uncertain standing of a popular favorite. It is no business of ours to fix his rank among the humorists California has given us, but we think he is, in an entirely different way from all the others, quite worthy of the company of the best."

(I notice that Howell's refers to Twain as "Mr. Clements", whereas today we know him as Samuel Langhorne Clemens. I do not know the reason for the difference in the spelling of his name).

The Atlantic's very complimentary review was thus instrumental in giving Twain's career a great boost, and the relationship between Twain and the magazine developed into a strong one. As related by The Atlantic in 2001 - "The relationship began in December, 1869, when William Dean Howells, then an assistant editor at The Atlantic, wrote a highly favorable review of Twain's first book, Innocents Abroad, which had been published that year by a small commercial publishing house that sold copies by peddling the book from door to door. (Howells later also reviewed The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and A Tramp Abroad for The Atlantic.

These early Atlantic pieces with the apparently heavy editing of Twain's friend and foresighted advocate editor, are an interesting glimpse into Twain-in-the-making. A fascinating window into the forge from which emerged the greatest American novel, Huckleberry Finn.

With no greater love than that of Twain, and the long love of one of the last bastions of fine short fiction, you can't go wrong with this collection.

Handy to carry and read. One of my favorite authors. I always need Twain nearby to get me through the rough days.
