A Theory of Literate Action: Literate Action Volume 2
by Charles Bazerman
Publisher: Parlor Press 2013
Number of pages: 228

This book is a collection of essays on various subjects by America's most famous satirist, Mark Twain. The essays were written a century ago, but they bristle with energy and wit -- wonderful reminders of what a fine and funny writer the author was.

A book for would-be authors. No one can teach authors how or what to write; but sometimes it is possible to help the beginners to an understanding of what it is better not to write. For the rest I hope the book explains itself.
