The Writing of Mark Twain
| || The Autobiography of Mark Twain|
"In my opinion Mark Twain's autiobiography is a classic of American letters, to be ranked with the autobiographies of Benjamin Franklin and Henry Adams. The final word of one of our country's most beloved authors. It is the product of a highly original yet representative mind and it brings back the tone and flavor of an America which was young and optimistic, a homespun, provindial America but an America with greatness in its heart." -- Charles Neider, from the Introduction
