The Autobiography of Mark Twain by Mark Twain

Mark Twain’s Autobiography is a two-volume set published over ten years after Twain's death in order to protect the "guilty". It was well received, as the public was hungry for some new books by Mark Twain. Twain thought his autobiography would be most entertaining if he went off on whims and tangents in non-sequential order.[citation needed] Some archivists and compilers had a problem with this and rearranged the biography into a more conventional form, thereby eliminating some of Twain’s humor and the flow of the book.

The 569th greatest nonfiction book of all time
