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 second volume delves deeper into 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.
