Mark Twain's complete, uncensored Autobiography was an
instant bestseller when the first volume was published in 2010, on
the centennial of the author's death, as he requested. Published to
rave reviews, the Autobiography was hailed as the capstone
of Twain's career. It captures his authentic and unsuppressed
voice, speaking clearly from the grave and brimming with humor,
ideas, and opinions.
The eagerly-awaited Volume 2 delves deeper into Mark Twain's life,
uncovering the many roles he played in his private and public
worlds. Filled with his characteristic blend of humor and ire, the
narrative ranges effortlessly across the contemporary scene. He
shares his views on writing and speaking, his preoccupation with
money, and his contempt for the politics and politicians of his
day. Affectionate and scathing by turns, his intractable curiosity
and candor are everywhere on view.
