CHASING THE LAST LAUGH - HOW MARK TWAIN ESCAPED DEBT AND DISGRACE WITH A ROUND THE WORLD COMEDY

À propos

In the 1890s, Mark Twain came back from the dead. The famous authors career was collapsing, his masterpieces were at risk of falling into oblivion, and he was even mistakenly reported dead. But Twain orchestrated an amazing late-in-life comeback from bankruptcy, bad reviews, and family disaster by setting out on an unprecedented international comedy tour to restore his fortunes. Richard Zackss Chasing the Last Laugh captures some of Twains cleverest and funniest moments--many newly discovered in unpublished notebooks and letters--as he rode elephants in India, sorted diamonds in South Africa, and talked his way out of hell ninety minutes at a time. This untold chapter in the authors life began with ridiculously bad choices and ended in hard-won triumph.
