Praise

“To [Clemens’s] fascinating recollections Rasmussen contributes an informative Introduction that courageously takes up the issue of Samuel Clemens’s veracity, a fuller-than-usual chronology of Clemens’s life, an up-to-date bibliography of scholarship devoted to his autobiographical writings, and a surprisingly ample "Glossary" that identifies everyone and everything from Susan Crane to John Hay to the Monday Evening Club to the starboard side of a river vessel… a highly usable and deeply enjoyable compilation of some of Twain’s very best prose.”
Mark Twain Forum

“Rasmussen seems to have been born with the destiny of bringing order and light to Twain scholarship… So now he’s written yet another book that I would say ought to be near to hand for any scholar doing work on Sam Clemens, the biographical individual.”
—Lawrence Berkove, University of Michigan-Dearborn
