    Autobiography of Mark Twain: Volume 1, Reader's Edition (Mark Twain Papers)

    by Mark Twain

    Book Description

    The year 2010 marked the 100th anniversary of Mark Twain's death. In celebration of this important milestone and in honor of the cherished tradition of publishing Mark Twain's works, UC Press published Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1, the first of a projected three-volume edition of the complete, uncensored autobiography. This major literary event brought to readers, admirers, and scholars Mark Twain's authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave as he intended. The book became an immediate bestseller and was hailed as the capstone of the life's work of America's favorite author.This Reader's Edition, a portable paperback in larger type, republishes the text of the hardcover Autobiography in a form that is convenient for the general reader, without the editorial explanatory notes. It includes a brief introduction describing the evolution of Mark Twain's ideas about writing his autobiography, as well as a chronology of his life, brief family biographies, and an excerpt from the forthcoming Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 2--a controversial but characteristically humorous attack on Christian doctrine.
