Library Journal Review

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), requested that his autobiography remain unpublished until 100 years after his death. In 2010, the Mark Twain Project, led by editors Griffin and Harriet E. Smith, released Volume 1 as part of the larger "Mark Twain Papers" series. Volume 2 boasts the writer's stories, observations, opinions, and everything else in between, arranged by the date of their dictation to stenographer Josephine Hobby and author Albert Bigelow Paine. A full 281 pages are dedicated to thorough explanatory notes, appendixes, references, and an index. As much a sensitive and articulate historical work as an autobiography, the book is almost inexhaustible in its content-readers are treated to a biting editorial on mesmerism, a sweet critique of Twain's daughter's biography of her father, and sage opinions regarding American statesman John Hay, all within four pages. Paradoxically, what seems like a mountain of anecdotal scraps and opinions results in a clear picture of Clemens as Twain. VERDICT Highly recommended to dedicated fans and Twain scholars as well as readers of 19th-century American history, autobiography, and literary history.-Benjamin Brudner, Curry Coll.

Mark Twain was born Samuel L. Clemens in Florida, Missouri on November 30, 1835. He worked as a printer, and then became a steamboat pilot. He traveled throughout the West, writing humorous sketches for newspapers. In 1865, he wrote the short story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, which was very well received. He then began a career as a humorous travel writer and lecturer, publishing The Innocents Abroad in 1869, Roughing It in 1872, and, Gilded Age in 1873, which was co-authored with Charles Dudley Warner. His best-known works are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Mississippi Writing: Life on the Mississippi, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. He died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910. <p> (Bowker Author Biography)
