Publisher's Summary

It has been 105 years since writer Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, took his final breath.
But, nearly identical in appearance, personality, and authentic dress, you would think he was sitting in Tom's living room today - a traveler brought here through some freak accident involving time and space.
You see, Tom has managed to inherit a most unusual houseguest. Not a doting relative or an old friend but a stranger who claims to be Mark Twain himself - a man who looks and acts the part, down to his dry wit and dramatic panache. One whom Tom knows by the name "Earl"...for reasons he'll get into later.
As the two men get to know each other over the course of eye-opening conversations and humorous insights about the world, an unexpected friendship emerges - while Tom struggles to discover the origins of the mysterious guest once and for all.
But when the truth gets a little too close for comfort, Tom must decide whether he wants to keep up the relentless search for the man's real identity...or simply relax and enjoy the (supposed) presence of one of history's greatest literary icons.

Mark Twain visits the twenty-first century

"Living with Earl" is an amusing look at the modern life we all take for granted. It is told through a series of vignettes related by Earl, Tom's mysterious Mark Twain-impersonator house guest. Not only is this story enjoyable in its own right, but it also serves as an important introduction to Tom and Earl's continued adventures in the sequel, "Dying with Earl." Definitely recommended!

Fun!

I wasn't sure what to expect with this--it's more like a series of vignettes, I guess, than a traditional story. At times it was like listening to funny conversations between your crazy uncles, and at other times it was like listening to annoying lectures from that one grouchy uncle who thinks he knows better than everyone else. Always enjoyable, though.
