"This third and final volume crowns and completes [Twain's] work. Like its companion volumes, it chronicles Twain's inner and outer life through a series of daily dictations that go wherever his fancy leads. Created from March 1907 to December 1909, these dictations present Mark Twain at the end of his life: receiving an honorary degree from Oxford University; railing against Theodore Roosevelt; founding numerous clubs; incredulous at an exhibition of the Holy Grail; credulous about the authorship of Shakespeare's plays; relaxing in Bermuda; observing (and investing in) new technologies"--Dust jacket flap.

Way too much chaff among the wheat. Twain's a great writer and his prose is often wonderful but his autobiography needed some serious, brutal weeding to make this a compelling read. Some great tales here and there but, man, do you have to slog through (skip) a lot of boring crap. Worth a look if you love Twain.

Upon dictating the capacious story of his life, Twain stipulated that it shouln't be published unexpurgated until 100 years after his death. Seven months after the passing of that milestone, fans finally got their look.
