Lit notes

1. Mark Twain is being produced on Broadway:
Twain returns to Broadway after, ahem, almost a century of death with a “new” play called, oddly enough, “Is He Dead?” A mixture of farce and satire, the comedy centers on a group of artists who plot to drive up the price of a friend’s paintings by faking his demise.
If I'm not mistaken, Shelley Fisher Fishkin unearthed this play from the archive at Cal and had it adapted.

2. Madeleine L'Engle died a few days ago, of natural causes, aged 88.
