Review-A-Day

"As Mr. Clemens writes of his experiences, we imagine he would talk of them; and very amusing talk it would be: often not at all fine in matter or manner, but full of touches of humor, — which if not delicate are nearly always easy, — and having a base of excellent sense and good feeling. There is an amount of pure human nature in the book, that rarely gets into literature." William Dean Howells, The Atlantic Monthly (read the entire Atlantic Monthly review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Innocents Abroad, sold over 70,000 copies in its first year and remained the best-selling of Twain's works throughout his lifetime. And no wonder — it shows the great author at the height of his powers as he records his trenchant, often hilarious, observations of people and places (Tangier, Marseilles, Paris, Venice, Rome, Constantinople, etc.) he saw while touring Europe and the Holy Land in 1867. Serious passages alternate with jocular chapters, and Twain's humor takes a particularly satirical turn toward the tourists who rely upon travel guidebooks rather than their personal impressions to define their travel experiences. The Dover reprint will be the least expensive trade paperback edition of this great classic, and the only one to include all the charming line illustrations that appeared in the original edition.

The New World vs. the Old World.

The best look you can find about how Americans felt about Europe, and history in general in the 19th century.

And, of course, amazingly funny.


My favorite of Twains works.
