Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 2 : The Complete and Authoritative Edition Hardback

Edited by Benjamin Griffin, Harriet E. Smith, Victor Fischer, Michael Barry Frank, Sharon K. Goetz, Leslie Diane Myrick

Part of the Mark Twain Papers series



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.

Editors: Benjamin Griffin and Harriet E. Smith Associate Editors: Victor Fischer, Michael B. Frank, Sharon K. Goetz and Leslie Diane Myrick
