Innocents Abroad
Mark Twain wrote a series of travel letters whilst on a tour of Europe and the Middle East in 1867 with a group of American 'pilgrims'. These letters later formed the basis of The Innocents Abroad. Journeying from New York to Egypt via France, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Russia, Turkey and the Holy Land, he observed and lampooned his companions with typically caustic and incisive commentary. The local people he encountered fared little better. The resulting fresh, irreverent account of the New Barbarians' encounter with the Old World satirises the sentimental travel books popular in the mid-nineteenth century. In frequently humorous, sometimes grotesque, detail, Twain records the day-to-day ups and downs of discovering the truth about people and places, whilst pillorying those tourists who rely on guidebooks rather than their own impressions to define their experiences. Endlessly comic and entertaining, The Innocents Abroad remains one of the most celebrated and influential travel books ever written about Europe and the Middle East by an American.

A Family Sketch and Other Private Writings
This book publishes, for the first time in full, the two most revealing of Mark Twain's private writings. Here he turns his mind to the daily life he shared with his wife Livy, their three daughters, a great many servants, and an imposing array of pets. These first-hand accounts display this gifted and loving family in the period of its flourishing. Mark Twain began to write A Family Sketch in response to the early death of his eldest daughter, Susy, but the manuscript grew under his hands to become an exuberant account of the entire household. His record of the childrens' sayings - Small Foolishnesses - is next, followed by the related manuscript At the Farm. Also included are selections from Livy's 1885 diary and an authoritative edition of Susy's biography of her father, written when she was a teenager. Newly edited from the original manuscripts, this anthology is a unique record of a fascinating family.
