Críticas:

"Well-selected, thoroughly researched and thoughtfully annotated-a surprising, welcome addition to the apparently endless Twain shelf." Kirkus Reviews 20130215 "It is a special delight to read Twain's interactions with the readers who made him 19th-century America's most popular writer." -- Alexander Nazaryan New York Daily News 20130307 "Kent Rasmussen has done it again: he has come up with a book that will give every Twainiac and lots of others with only a casual interest in Mark Twain much enjoyment and a non-trivial amount of insight into one of the most remarkable writers the world has ever known." -- Shelley Fisher Fishkin Mark Twain Forum 20130416 "A magnificent, remarkably researched book." -- Maria Popova Maria Popova, Brain Pickings 20130324 "The content is diverse and intriguing... Verdict: Rasmussen is clearly an expert curator and researcher. Fans of Twain and most libraries will want to secure a copy." -- Stacy Russo Library Journal 20130401 "A devoted Samuel Clemons/Mark Twain fan will want to pick up this book and will appreciate Rasmussen's research." -- Chris Stuckenschneider Missourian 20130612 "This series of letters makes delightful reading." -- Aron Row San Francisco Book Review and Sacramento Book Review 20130708 "Over the past two decades Kent Rasmussen has consistently produced some of the most useful, practically minded, and accessible scholarship in Mark Twain studies. With Dear Mark Twain: Letters from His Readers, Rasmussen comes through again... Rasmussen enlarges what we know of Mark Twain from his correspondence as it provides the most substantive understanding yet of who were buying his books and reading him in newspapers and magazines at the turn of the century. As such, this collection will be of interest to Mark twain specialists, students of American literary and cultural studies, and general readers alike." -- Joseph Csicsila Mark Twain Annual 20131101

Reseña del editor:

A voracious pack-rat, Mark Twain hoarded his readers' letters as did few of his contemporaries. Dear Mark Twain collects 200 of these letters written by a diverse cross-section of correspondents from around the world - children, farmers, schoolteachers, businessmen, preachers, railroad clerks, inmates of mental institutions, con artists, and even a former president. It is a unique and groundbreaking book - the first published collection of reader letters to any writer of Mark Twain's time. Its contents afford a rare and exhilarating glimpse into the sensibilities of nineteenth-century people while revealing the impact Samuel L. Clemens had on his readers. Clemens' own and often startling comments and replies are also included. R. Kent Rasmussen's extensive research provides fascinating profiles of the correspondents, whose personal stories are often as interesting as their letters. Ranging from gushing fan appreciations and requests for help and advice to suggestions for writing projects and stinging criticisms, the letters are filled with perceptive insights, pathos, and unintentional but often riotous humor. Many are deeply moving, more than a few are hilarious, some may be shocking, but none are dull.
