This collection of the 258 known, publicly-printed interviews of Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) was compiled by Gary Scharnhorst and published by the University of Alabama Press.

Reviews

(5 stars)

John Greenman continues his astonishing self-appointed task of recording every word ever written by Mr Samuel Longhorne Clemens (and, indeed, apparently all words written regarding him) in a lasting, phenomenonal tribute, which cannot be faulted. It as if Twain himself is reading his own works aloud, and I for one will never be able to read Twain again without hearing John Greenman's voice. This most recent recording represents an astonishing job of work, to collect every presscutting the great man ever had, ranging from a few hundred words into the thousands, is mind-boggling in breadth, scope and complexity, and I applaud everyone involved in the collation and recording of these disparate pieces. The content is wonderful, little snippets or sometimes slightly longer glimpses into Twain's personal trials and tribulations... More so than any of John Greenman's previous amazing Twain recordings, these pieces seem so very immediate, it's as close as we can get to being in the room with the great man himself.

Impressive
