I conceive that the right way to write a story for boys is to write so that it will not only interest boys but strongly interest any man who has ever been a boy. That immensely enlarges the audience. Hall, 10 Aug We write frankly and fearlessly but then we "modify" before we print.

Experience of life not of books is the only capital usable in such a book as you have attempted; one can make no judicious use of this capital while it is new. Well, my book is written--let it go.

But if it were only to write over again there wouldn't be so many things left out. They burn in me; and they keep multiplying; but now they can't ever be said.

And besides, they would require a library--and a pen warmed up in hell.

Second this is an academic press which means that there is a long introduction and discussion of prior autobiographical starts by Mark Twain for two hundred pages. The actual autobiography of Mark Twain is only pages of transcriptions from his dictation of his attempt to write his life story. Two more volumes will be published later. Third, this edition is a rambling text with no chronological sequence. Mark Twain told stories as he remembered as they came to his memory.

None of these observations are negative but the reader should be aware of these differences. This book aims to be the definitive edition by publishing everything that Mark dictated or wrote after in the order that it came into creation.

Prior publications were much shorter as various editors organized what they thought was interesting, had his family's approval and was in some chronlogical sequence Charles Neider did the best overall job of this fifty years ago.

What the reader has here is Mark Twain's true speaking voice -- he is doing a monologue in your presence, going wherever his memory takes him. It really was like getting to sit and listen to the man talk. He is extremely sharp and funny.

His descriptive abilities are unsurpassed. Since he knew this would not be published until a century after his death, he was not censored in his opinions.

His comments about Theodore Roosevelt are hilarious. My only quibble with Volume Three is that I wish the Ashcroft-Lyon Papers had been inserted into the autobiography to correspond with the time they were written.
