"Mark Twain remains as central as ever not only in American literature but in American life," writes James M. Cox, a leading Twain scholar.
"An Autobiography" is an adaptation of Mark Twain’s famous autobiography. This title has approximately three thousand headwords and is appropriate for upper intermediate to advanced learners. Twain was an American writer of such classics as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Prince and the Pauper. In his time, he was considered the funniest man on earth. In this small volume the author recounts colorful anecdotes from his long life. Mark Twain in his own words: It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not. Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company! We have the best government that money can buy.
