“[H]as to be seen as the great book some of us have quite literally waited all our lives for the definitive book about Mark Twain’s Buffalo residence.”
The Buffalo News

“Provides an in-depth look at Twain in Buffalo… [Proves] that brief though his time here was, it provides plenty of material for a story worth telling.”
—Buffalo Spree

“A large piece of the biographical puzzle about Mark Twain has been put into place.”
—Dr. Alan Gribben, editor, Mark Twain Journal

 “Carefully researched and evocatively written, this study gives Mark Twain’s often-dismissed and maligned Buffalo years the sort of affectionate attention they deserve. It should quickly become the definitive source for this brief, volatile, and pivotal period in Twain’s development as a writer and public personality.”
—Mark Woodhouse, the Mark Twain Archives, Elmira College
“A rich and meticulously detailed chronicle of the place where Mark Twain spent the first years of his marriage and developed his iconic literary voice. A highly enjoyable read.”
—Laura Skandera Trombley, Pitzer College, author of Mark Twain’s Other Woman
“Reigstad reveals Twain’s activities and social connections in Buffalo in a readable narrative, fully documenting his exhaustive research.”
—David H. Fears, author of Mark Twain Day by Day
