Most widely held works by Hamlin Lewis Hill
Mark Twain. God's fool by Hamlin Lewis Hill( Book )

28 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After laughing their way through his classic and beloved depictions of nineteenth-century American life, few readers would suspect that Mark Twain's last years were anything but happy and joyful. They would be wrong. Contrary to the myth perpetrated by his literary executors Twain ended his life as a frustrated writer plagued by paranoia. He suffered personal tragedies, got involved in questionable business ventures, and was a demanding and controlling father and husband. As Mark Twain: God's Fool demonstrates, the difficult circumstances of Twain's personal life make his humorous output all the more surprising and admirable. --publisher

"The Gilded Age (1873) gave its name to an era. The book originated in a dinner-party challenge: Twain and his Hartford neighbor Charles Dudley Warner, complaining about the low quality of the novels their wives were reading, were asked if they could do better. The resulting collaboration is a panorama of an age in which vast fortunes piled up amid thriving corruption, and of the nation's capital, teeming with would-be power brokers. It features the remarkable Colonel Sellers, a visionary convinced that his odd inventions and schemes will bring him fame and riches." "Colonel Sellers returns in The American Claimant (1892), an encore performance that takes off into realms of freewheeling antics. Now the would-be heir to an English title, Sellers concocts a host of extravagant inventions, like a "cursing phonograph" for timid sea captains and a method for "materializing" the dead. As he worked on this farrago of multiple role reversals and madcap schemes, Twain wrote, "I wake up in the night laughing at its ridiculous situations."" "Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894) and Tom Sawyer, Detective (1896) are late, fanciful extensions of the adventures begun in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In the first, Tom and Huck and Jim escape again from civilization, not on a raft but in a balloon which carries them across the Atlantic. In Tom Sawyer, Detective, Twain transposes a seventeenth-century Danish murder case to America, letting his famous pair play Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson." "Twain's haunting final novel, left in manuscript after his death, No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger, is an uncanny psychic adventure set in the gothic gloom of a medieval Austrian village. Unusual among Twain's works for its phantasmagoric trappings, the novel powerfully interrogates the latent powers of the human mind. Originally published in heavily edited form, it appears here in the authoritative text established a half century after Twain's death."--Jacket
