About the Author:

Mark Twain (1835-1910) was an American humorist, satirist, social critic, lecturer and novelist. He is mostly remembered for his classic novels The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"When I was growing up my grandfather advised me: 'Dress British, but think Yiddish.' It was good counsel and this has ruled me most of my life. The advice, of course, suggested that I learn to build an exterior that belied my interior. I can only imagine what Mark Twain would have thought about this, but for me it was a call to practice a high art of lying. We live in an age where Truth and Trust are sisters. But while everyone is clamoring for transparency, sometimes a filter of color softens the light, and brings comfort and warmth to those friends, family, acquaintances, and passersby who need it most." ―Phil Zuckerman, Publisher
