The Literate Loser #20

Somebody kills someone with someone else’s knife in chapter 19 of Mark Twain’s Pudd’nhead Wilson, and I finally get around to reading the long-promised treatise by Twain on how Scotland’s Sir Walter Scott turned every U.S. Southern gentleman into a colonel or general and thus was hugely responsible for the Civil War. Then I offer four quick book recommendations (‘though I have only read three of them!) and top everything off with a small tribute to Quiet Riot lead singer Kevin DuBrow.

00:00 — 01:29 Hi.
01:29 — 30:03 Pudd’nhead Wilson, Chapter 19 and Twain on Scott.
30:03 — 37:00 Four book recommendations.
37:00 — 41:47 Remembering Kevin DuBrow.
41:47 — 43:29 Ta-ta.
