Mark Twain: An Illustrated Biography
Geoffrey C. Ward (au); Dayton Duncan (au); Ken Burns (pf). Mark Twain was the most famous American of his day, & remains the most revered American writer. The book examines not merely his famous novels, stories, travelogues, & lectures, but also his diaries, letters, & 275 illustrations from throughout his life. Takes us from his boyhood in Hannibal, MO, to his time as a riverboat worker -- when he adopted the sobriquet “Mark Twain” -- to his varied careers as a newspaperman, printer, & author. Follows him from the home he built in Hartford, CT, to his travels across Europe, the Middle East, & the U.S. With essays by Russell Jocelyn Chadwick, Ron Powers & John Boyer, & an interview with frequent Twain portrayer Hal Holbrook, this book provides a rich portrayal of the first figure of Amer. letters. Beautifully designed!
