I decided to read this as a prelude to his unexpurgated autobiography, which is not written along a linear timeline, in order to better understand the events depicted in the latter. Dense, detailed and consistently well-written, this biography provided me with what I crave most, enough of the real person behind the Mark Twain persona to bring to life the man, father, son, brother, friend and enemy.
