Gelesen von John Greenman

(4,833 Sterne; 3 Bewertungen)

This work has been considered the "go-to" bio of Mark Twain for over a hundred years. Albert Bigelow Paine (July 10, 1861 – April 9, 1937) was an American author and biographer best known for his work with Mark Twain. These recordings of Paine's exhaustive biography cover Twain's personal and literary life in detail, heretofore, unapproached.
