Henry C. Bunner -Editor of Puck

Made in France: French Tales Retold With a United States Twist

Bunner wrote Mark Twain about the beauty of Nutley

A close friend of Mark Twain, the Whitford Avenue resident often had Twain coming down to Nutley for a visit. In one of his correspondences to Twain, he wrote: "There isn't much that is prettier than this end of New Jersey ... You come. I'll drive you around on Sunday and show you some views that will do your heart good."

And so, Bunner in the literary circle of Twain and fellow Nutley writers, such as Frank Stockton and Ripley Hitchcock, used the green scenic backdrop of Nutley for a sizable part of his writing career.
