Mark Twain – A Life

I’ve been reading a biography of mark twain. The writer of huckleberry finn and tom sawyer and the innocents abroad.

He had Ginger hair (as did Churchill apparently) and  i find myself repeatedly surprised by such facts, feeling that black and white photography as somehow been telling me lies.

Twain was his pen name and he was known to everyone as Sam Clemens. He was no doubt a literary genius but he could also easily be described as an asshole. Plenty of talent too but still an asshole.
