Read full description of the books:

Un vero e proprio manuale per aspiranti umoristi, accompagnato da fulminanti aneddoti e riflessioni semi-serie, per imparare tutto sul mestiere di raccontar storie. A seguire, Mark Twain disserta sulla "migliore e più fidata amica dell'uomo", ovvero la menzogna, e s'improvvisa critico letterario in un impertinente saggio sui crimini contro la narrativa ("114 sui 115 possibili") commessi dal collega Fenimore Cooper.
Se è vero che "l'arte di raccontare una storia umoristica è nata in America e lì trova ancora oggi terreno fertile", allora chi, meglio di Mark Twain, può svelarne i segreti?

"Non sostengo di essere in grado di raccontare una storia come andrebbe raccontata. Sostengo soltanto di sapere come andrebbe raccontata una storia, dato che sono anni e anni che mi trovo quasi quotidianamente in compagnia dei più esperti narratori."

Read information about the author

Ebook Come raccontare una storia e l'arte di mentire read Online! Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.

Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
