The last installment of Scharnhorst’s three-volume biography chronicles the life of Samuel Clemens between his family’s extended trip to Europe in 1891 and his death in 1910. During this period, Clemens was one of the most famous people in the world. He also grapples with bankruptcy, returns to the lecture circuit, loses two daughters and his wife, and writes some of his darkest, most critical works in the last years of his life.
