Mark Twain Biography Series

Certain happenings as recorded in this work will be found to differ materially from the same incidents and episodes as set down in the writings of Mr. Clemens himself. Mark Twain's spirit was built of the very fabric of truth, so far as moral intent was concerned, but in his earlier autobiographical writings--and most of his earlier writings were autobiographical--he made no real pretense to accuracy of time, place, or circumstance--seeking, as he said, "only to tell a good story"--while in later years an ever-vivid imagination and a capricious memory made history difficult, even when, as in his so-called "Autobiography," his effort was in the direction of fact.

Rebecca Faye Smith Galli
Nine days after her divorce was finalized, Rebecca Faye Smith Galli, a 38-year-old mother of four, wakes with leg pains that paralyze her. Her kids were 3, 4, 6, and 9 years old at the time. Despite this loss and others—her brother’s death, her daughter’s autism; her son’s disease and death—Galli offers inspiration to rethink what’s possible. As our Author of the Day, she talks about what it takes to live fully the life you didn't plan.
