John Wilkes Booth a sister's memoir by Asia Booth Clarke( )

Since it was first published in 1938, Asia Booth Clarke's memoir of her brother John Wilkes Booth has been recognized as the single most important document available for understanding the personality of the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln. Clarke, a poet and author of two other volumes of biography of her celebrated actor-family members, wrote this reminiscence in 1874 when Lincoln's murder and her brother's ensuing death at the hands of federal soldiers were still painfully fresh in her mind. She hoped at some point to see the work published. Yet she felt compelled to keep it secret because it might enrage her husband, a professional comedian whose anger at his own arrest in 1865 on suspicion of association with Booth had threatened their marriage. At her death in 1888 the manuscript passed to friends. A half century later her heirs felt the public was receptive to such an intimate view of the most famous assassin in American history
