Publisher's Summary

"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn...it's the best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since." - Ernest Hemingway

Samuel Langhorne Clemens - better known by his pen name of Mark Twain - towers over all other American writers. But who was the man behind the novels?

In this revealing, compact biography, Alexander Kennedy examines Twain's extraordinary life, expertly separating fact from fiction, biography from legend. Here we see how Twain rose from an impoverished boyhood on the Mississippi to become one of the nation's most famous men, using the very material of that impoverished boyhood to propel his rise. But Twain's life also had more than its share of tragedy, and his story is also one of failure, bankruptcy, and grievous loss. Twain guides the listener through Twain's many rises and falls, showing how this master author spun both his highs and lows into literary gold, changing the face of world literature forever.

"Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest." - Mark Twain
