About the Author
Mark Twain is best known as the author of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Praised for his humour and his exceptional wit, he is regarded by many as America's greatest humorist and the father of American literature. He was born shortly after an appearance of Halley's Comet, and mused that he might "go out with it" as well - and, the day the day after the comet returned, he did.
Bernard Taper (1918-2016) was the author of several books, including the acclaimed Balanchine: A Biography and Cellist in Exile: A Portrait of Pablo Casals. Following a stint as a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, he worked for many years as a staff writer for the New Yorker. He was also a professor of journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.
