Volume 1 of 2. In this autobiography, Mark Twain is speaking from
the grave, literally. He would not allow the book to be published
until after his death, so that he could speak freely, as in a love
letter. In the manner in which Twain is so well-known, his
autobiography is really not an autobiography at all, but a series
of entertaining stories and opinions, dinner table talks, such as
he had always delivered in his own home and elsewhere, and with
about the same latitude and elaboration. Twain's narrative is not
in any sense a mere fairy tale, many of the chapters, especially
the earlier ones, are vividly true in their presentation. The
things he told of Mrs. Clemens and Susy are marvelously and
beautifully true in spirit and aspect, and the story as a whole is
amazingly faithful in the character picture it presents of the man
