5.0 out of 5 stars Getting to know Samuel Clemens. Jan. 22 2011
By Edwin D. Huff - Published on

Wistful, heart breaking, very personal and ribald as ever, this autobiography does not disappoint. Structured a bit differently from most autobiographies, that is not strictly organized chronologically, it is a delightful read at most every turn, since the author chose to write about things that interested him. There may be a few surprises for Twain mavens, though they are likely not the sort having to do with revelations about famous people he knew and wanted to come clean about, but instead, are personal confessions, having to do with those close to him, siblings, children, kith and kin. I am not looking forward to completing the last few chapters, as each one has been most enjoyable. So, I have repeated sections, sharing recollections about his older brother's challenges in finding his calling with my son, a sophomore in college, anxious about selecting a major, and re-enjoyed such sections by reading them aloud with family and friends. His writing is spirited, and even when conveying heart breaking moments, like the death of his daughter, he is uplifting through the expression of deep affection, and the effects of life long loss and fond remembrances that also linger. It's a wonderful book, and for those who enjoy any of his writing, they will surely continue to do so with this compilation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clever instant publishing? April 16 2011
By Larry Seaquist - Published on

Autobiography of Mark Twain - 100th Anniversary Edition Buying what I thought was the new Mark Twain autobiography, this book arrived. Same title, looks authentic, but appears to be an outside instant publishing effort which slipped its product onto the Amazon catalog. Telltale evidence: printer's mark on back page: "24 March 2011" -- just a couple of days before I ordered the book.

The book itself is fine, although very odd typography -- apparently they scanned in and printed directly from the old magazines or some collection, thus a bit hard to read. It is a collection of Twain's published reminiscences. All very interesting -- makes a good companion to the "real" autobiography, which I came back and bought also.

I was in Hannibal, Missouri this past spring. Mark Twain was quoted there most often from this book. I learned a lot about Twain and America. It's a great read.
