Out of the theme of switched identities, Mark Twain fashioned both a fiery assault upon social hypocrisy and injustice and a riotous comedy filled with high-spirited play.
Mark Twain (1835-1910) was born Samuel L. Clemens in the town of Florida, Missouri. One of the most popular and influential authors America has ever produced, his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. He has been called not only the greatest humorist of his age but the father of American literature.

Wonderful author, terrific narrator, splendid book
Ever since I read the super-abridged version of this book when I was little, I’ve felt such a kinship to this book. As a twin, books on identity swapping fascinated me when little. They still do, truth be told. I approached it with trepidation, hoping that the tale would hold strong in the expanded retelling, and it certainly did! Though I’ve never been a fan of Huckleberry Finn (I’m a terrible person, I know—perhaps I’ll revisit it again later in life and love appreciate it like my English teachers hoped I would in school), it wasn’t a surprise that the masterful Mark Twain just killed it with this book. Such great commentary on society, class structures, family, circumstance, and politics. So glad I revisited!
