About the Author
Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known by the pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist and essayist. He was praised as the "greatest humorist the United States has produced," with William Faulkner calling him "the father of American literature." Twain is noted for his novels, Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn, which has been called the "The Great American Novel" and The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer. He also wrote poetry, short stories, essays, and non-fiction. Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for both Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. He served an apprenticeship with a printer early in his career, and then worked as a typesetter, contributing articles to his older brother Orion Clemens' newspaper. He wrote both fiction and non-fiction. As his fame grew, he became a much sought-after speaker. His wit and satire, both in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and Twain was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

Patrick Fraley has created voices for over four thousand characters, placing him among the top ten performers of all time to be cast in animated programs. He holds an MFA in acting from Cornell University and is the author of the only character-voice curriculum ever to be accredited at the university level.

Reviews
"All modern American literature comes from [this] one book by Mark Twain ... it's the best book we've had." -- Ernest Hemingway
"The engagingly adolescent style that Patrick Fraley adopts for Mark Twain's timeless hero makes this reading of the evergreen classic the best yet."
