The Mark Twain Forum needs a reviewer for the following book:

_Mark Twain's Own Autobiography: The Chapters From The North American
Review_. Second Edition. Edited by Michael J. Kiskis. Foreword by Sheila
Leary. University of Wisconsin Press, 2010. Softcover. Pp. 370. ISBN:
978-0-299-23474-4. $18.95.

The first edition of this book was issued in 1990. Kiskis has updated this
second edition with a longer introduction and additional reference notes
which draw on research in the intervening twenty years since the book was
first issued. An appendix of sample letters written by Clemens has also been
added. Sheila Leary, Director of the University of Wisconsin Press and
great-great-niece of Katy Leary has written a three-page Foreword to this
edition which offers insight into the Leary family.

The publisher's web page for this book is:

The review would be due around the first of May. If you are interested in
