Beschreibung

"This is another gold nugget in the treasure house of Mark Twain. That he could have spun out such a rollicking satire on the hypocrisy of the art world, delivered in the spirit of 'Charley's Aunt, ' while his own spirit battled the ghosts of personal loss, is another beacon to the wild and surprising genius of Mark Twain. Shelley Fisher Fishkin has done it again, giving us the fruits of eye-opening, double-fathom research, pursuing nearly virgin byways of Mark Twain's literary and social life and showing us how that colorful world affected the temper of his mind. I learned things I never knew while racing through this book."--Hal Holbrook

Pressestimmen

"This master of the novel proves also to be a master at play construction. Is He Dead? has all the craftsmanship of a far more seasoned playwright's efforts, and the targets Twain establishes - mendacity and greed - are the twin evils he exposed throughout his distinguished career." - Tony Lewis, Providence Journal-Bulletin "Worthy of Twain's legacy as America's greatest humorist." - Ledger "Sparked by enough over-the-top humor, it is laugh-aloud funny to read." - Booklist "This is another gold nugget in the treasure house of Mark Twain. That he could have spun out such a rollicking satire on the hypocrisy of the art world, delivered in the spirit of 'Charley's Aunt,' while his own spirit battled the ghosts of personal loss, is another beacon to the wild and surprising genius of Mark Twain.
