Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"It is delicious, " proclaimed a reviewer in The Atlantic Monthly upon the 1880 publication of A Trump Abroad, "whether you open it at the sojourn in Heidelberg, or the voyage down the Neckar on a raft, or the mountaineering in Switzerland, or the excursion beyond Alps into Italy." The success of Mark Twain's prior collection of travel memoirs, The Innocents Abroad, inspired a return to Europe for another look at some of the countries and landmarks that initially dazzled the author and his companions. Twain's abundant humor waxes as freely as ever; this time, however, his amusement bears a more cynical cast, as he regards the grand tourist sights of Innocents through older and more experienced eyes. This volume is a milestone in the Twain oeuvre and a must for his legions of aficionados.
