"A Family Sketch" From Mark Twain

University of California Press

You've probably read at least a little Mark Twain. 

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn were required reading for decades of American students. 

But Twain's work was not focused solely on fictional characters. 

He turned his attention to the people around him for "A Family Sketch," just one of the components of A Family Sketch and Other Private Writings, now in print. 

Editor Benjamin Griffin from the Mark Twain Project is our guest.
