Author Carlo DeVito captures the magic of Christmas through the eyes of this literary icon. A Mark Twain Christmas presents vivid, intimate accounts of three outstanding Christmases in the life of the renowned humorist and American literary giant: 1908, 1875, and 1909.
Releasing one month before the highly anticipated second volume in Mark Twain’s autobiography (the first volume, a major bestseller, was published in 2010, 100 years after Twain’s death, according to his strict orders), A Mark Twain Christmas is the perfect holiday gift for fans of Mark Twain—and everyone who shares his soft spot for the season.
“A heartwarming tale of Christmas past that’s chock full of all the wit and hilarity we admire in America’s favorite humorist--Mark Twain. Carlo DeVito brings us back one hundred years to a magical time in Twain’s family life, revealing a house that’s brimming with love and laughter, as well as the profound heartbreaks of life. A Mark Twain Christmas only deepens our understanding and respect for both the man and his work.”
-Gilbert King, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America
