Jumping frogs, high society, San Francisco's Emperor Norton and the stray dogs that followed on his heels--nothing escaped Mark Twain's scrutiny or his acerbic wit. Bernard Taper has gathered together a heady selection of newspaper articles, correspondence, poetry, and short stories that are humorous--sometimes exasperating and controversial--but always engaging. Edward Jump, a contemporary of Twain's, offers through his lively illustrations a visual drum roll to Twain's cantankerous prose. From earthquakes, scandals, and tantalizing bonanzas to elegant ladies blowing their noses in "exquisitely modulated tones," Mark Twain has left us a vision of San Francisco that is at once fascinating and hilariously familiar.
