Who Is Mark Twain?

Twain, Mark Author

Image Not Available

“[Twain] was, in the phrase of his friend William Dean Howells, ‘the Lincoln of our literature’... At the heart of his work lies that greatest of all American qualities: irreverence.”
Washington Post

“More than 100 years after [Twain] wrote these stories, they remain not only remarkably funny but remarkably modern.... Ninety-nine years after his death, Twain still manages to get the last laugh.”
Vanity Fair

Who Is Mark Twain? is a collection of twenty six wickedly funny, thought-provoking essays by Samuel Langhorne Clemens—aka Mark Twain—none of which have ever been published before, and all of which are completely contemporary, amazingly relevant, and gut-bustingly hilarious.

From the Back Cover:

"You had better shove this in the stove," Mark Twain said at the top of an 1865 letter to his brother, "for I don't want any absurd ‘literary remains' and ‘unpublished letters of Mark Twain' published after I am planted." He was joking, of course. But when Mark Twain died in 1910, he left behind the largest collection of personal papers created by any nineteenth-century American author. Who Is Mark Twain? presents twenty-six wickedly funny, disarmingly relevant pieces by the American master—a man who was well ahead of his time.

About the Author:

Mark Twain was born Samuel Clemens in Missouri in 1835. He wrote some of the most enduring works of American fiction, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. He died in 1910.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 136 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. You had better shove this in the stove, Mark Twain said at the top of an 1865 letter to his brother, for I don t want any absurd literary remains and unpublished letters of Mark Twain published after I am planted . He was joking, of course. But when Mark Twain died in 1910, he left behind the largest collection of personal papers created by any nineteenth-century American author. Here, for the first time in book form, are twenty-four remarkable pieces by the American master - pieces that have been hand picked by Robert Hirst, General Editor of The Mark Twain Project at UC Berkeley. In Jane Austen , Twain wonders if Austen s goal is to make the reader detest her people up to the middle of the book and like them in the rest of the chapters? The Privilege of the Grave offers a powerful statement about the freedom of speech while Happy Memories of the Dental Chair will make you appreciate modern dentistry. In Frank Fuller and My Fist New York Lecture Twain plasters the city with ads to promote his talk at the Cooper Union (he is terrified no one will attend). Later that day, Twain encounters two men gazing at one of his ads. One man says to the other: Who is Mark Twain? The other responds: God Knows-I Don t. Wickedly funny and disarmingly relevant, Who is Mark Twain? shines new light on one of America s most beloved literary icons - a man who was well ahead of his time.
