Abstract

The surprising final chapter of a great American life.When the first volume of Mark Twain's uncensored Autobiography was published in 2010, it was hailed as an essential addition to the shelf of his works and a crucial document for our understanding of the great humorist's life and times.

Abstract

""I've struck it!"" Mark Twain wrote in a 1904 letter to a friend. ""And I will give it away-to you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography.""

Meticulously restored from a variety of original sources, the text is the first to adhere to the author's wishes in thousands of det
