Mark Twains complete, uncensoredAutobiographywas an instant bestseller when the first volume was published in 2010, on the centennial of the authors death, as he requested. Published to rave reviews, theAutobiographywas hailed as the capstone of Twains career. It captures his authentic and unsuppressed voice, speaking clearly from the grave and brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions.

The eagerly-awaited Volume 2 delves deeper into Mark Twains life, uncovering the many roles he played in his private and public worlds. Filled with his characteristic blend of humor and ire, the narrative ranges effortlessly across the contemporary scene. He shares his views on writing and speaking, his preoccupation with money, and his contempt for the politics and politicians of his day. Affectionate and scathing by turns, his intractable curiosity and candor are everywhere on view.

Editors: Benjamin Griffin and Harriet E. Smith
Associate Editors: Victor Fischer, Michael B. Frank, Sharon K. Goetz and Leslie Diane Myrick

Praise for Volume 1

It feels like a form of time travel. One moment youre on horseback in the Hawaiian islands  or recovering from saddle boils with a cigar in your mouth  and the next moment youre meeting the Viennese maid he called, in a private joke, Wuthering Heights. We can hardly wait for Volume 2.New York Times

Twain's autobiography, finally available after a century, is a garrulous outpouringand every word beguiles.Wall Street Journal
