The story continues ...



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.

  1. I would never recognize this photo as Mark Twain. I wonder if Clemons was the first writer to construct a totally new identity.

  2. I think you can go back to George Sand and George Eliot.

  3. Received the book in the mail this morning. Another hefty tome. Don't know when I'm ever going to get around to reading this massive autobiography, but it is nice to have just the same.

  4. I haven't even opened volume 1 yet, but will pick up 2 while it's widely available.
