Summary
The last phase of Mark Twains life is sadly familiar: Crippled by losses and tragedies, Americas greatest humorist sank into a deep and bitter depression. It is also wrong. This book recovers Twains final years as they really were--lived in the shadow of deception and prejudice, but also in the light of the authors unflagging energy and enthusiasm
