Nice to see our guy on the front cover. Jerry Loving's excellent biography 
gets a good mention, but the other recent books on Twain just get a passing 
mention without even naming names except for the recent book on Twain and 
food (a real page-turner if you're a foodie AND a Twainian, although Twain 
fades from the pages in the second half of the book ). The extract from the 
new (due in Nov.) Berkeley edition of THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY on page 41 is a good 
teaser, but on page 40 they misidentify Jean as Clara. You can't miss the 
large sharp reproduction of the Alvin Coburn color photo of Twain laying in 
bed.. For reasons I could not quite grasp, the writer (Jones, their book 
editor) dwells at some length on the darkness of the claymation film of 
MYSTERIOUS STRANGER, seeming to confuse claymation with films for children, 
but maybe I misunderstood him.
