What's In Part Two Of Mark Twain's Incredibly Long Autobiography? "Things like hoaxes, jokes, yarns, obscenities, and non sequiturs." Wit. Digression. (Lots of it.) Bare-knuckled criticism. (This is why he wanted no publication until 100 years after his death.) And a sort of "ironic narcissism ... [that] makes his autobiography feel especially current."
