Clemens of the Call; Mark Twain in San Francisco by Mark Twain( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samuel Clemens was the local reporter for the San Francisco Daily Morning Call from June to October 1864. He wrote many hundreds of items for his newspaper, but nearly all of them have been buried in the files for more than a century. Now Clemens of the Call reprints two hundred of them, a rich yield from what is probably the last sizable unmined pocket of Clemens' published writings. The present collection represents a new order of Clemens' journalism. Here, the local reporter Samuel Clemens may be seen writing under pressure and close to fast-breaking events as he covers the news day in and day out. The selections are arranged chronologically within broad topical groupings. The editor has provided a general introduction, annotations, and a chronological checklist of Call items, and he has indicated the evidence that in his opinion is sufficient to establish Clemens as the author of the reprinted selections. --from inside jacket

A Paris year : Dorothy and James T. Farrell, 1931-1932 by Edgar Marquess Branch( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April of 1931 many American expatriates were leaving Paris because of the Depression that followed the stock market crash of 1929. A gifted but naive young couple, James and Dorothy Farrell, moved against the current. The young writer, who had not yet established himself, and his eager wife, who had some modest support from her family, bought train tickets out of Chicago and steamboat tickets out of New York to follow a dream of personal and artistic freedom. Edgar Marquess Branch, who grew up near Studs Lonigan's Chicago neighborhood, has used interviews, diaries, and letters from Farrell and others to bring to life this formative year of the young author and his wife. Their Paris story is embedded in the lives of other expatriates like Ezra Pound and Kay Boyle, who also were defining their times. Branch's narrative is complemented by photos of persons and places interwoven with the personal and artistic growth for the young Farrells. The Paris sojourn influenced the rest of their lives and the writing of Young Lonigan and Gas-House McGinty, and it altered the face of American literature
