Mark Twain

Here is one of my favorite authors

Mark Twain, whom William Dean Howells called “the Lincoln of our literature” was born in Samuel Langhorn Clemenus in Florida, Missousri, in 1835 and died at Redding Connecticut, in 1910. As a newspaper reporter, journeyman printer, Mississippi steamboat pilot and gold prosecutor in the West, he gained wealth of experience as an observer of the American scene. He earned his early reputation as a writer of travel sketches and stories and as a humorous lecturer, but with his first novel, The Gilded Age. He was launched as one of the America’s greatest novelists. Other of his books in the Signet Classic series include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn, A Connecticut Yankee in the King Arthur’s Court and Life on the Mississippi.
