Jennifer Knighton, April 4, 2011 (view all comments by Jennifer Knighton)
Twain has been one of my favorite authors since I was little - and not for the Tom Sawyers and Huck Finns that showed up everywhere. I was a sucker for A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and Roughing it. I have never read such an accurate description of a coyote before Roughing it. His life was in many ways far more interesting than his writing, and even as an historian it is hard for me to say that about many people. If you don't believe me, look up the history of the State Seal of the State of Nevada.
It's great to see a book which seems to grasp the fascinating stories behind a writer of fascinating stories.

A wonderfully written and insightful book. Many things about Twain, whether he wanted them published or not, show a side of the great American author. He deals with other authors and comments on subject relevant then and today. A great read.

When did the critics decide Huck Finn was Twain's "masterpiece"? When I was a kid (in the thirties!) it was always "Tom Sawyer" which was rated first!
