I haven't even had a chance to read this first volume of Mark Twain's epic autobiography, but have pre-ordered the second volume just the same. It is due out in October. Interesting that this is a much younger Samuel Clemens on the cover, after the first volume depicted an older Twain. Always reminded of Chartres whenever I think of Mark Twain, as she was such a big fan of his. Here is a link to the Mark Twain Project, sponsored by the University of California Press.
