Über den Autor

Mark Twain, the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910), remains an undisputed titan of American literature, famed for his sharp wit and remarkable narrative ability. Born in Missouri shortly after the appearance of Halley's Comet, Twain grew up along the banks of the Mississippi River, a setting which later furnished the backdrop for two of his greatest works, 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' (1876) and 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' (1884), the latter often heralded as 'the Great American Novel.' Twain's literary career was as diverse as it was prolific, extending beyond the confines of juvenile adventure into realms of social criticism, satire, and the short story form, where he exhibited his skill as a master storyteller. His flair for humor, deep skepticism of human nature, and keen observation of social nuances, are evident in the anthology 'THE GOLDEN BOOK OF WORLD'S GREATEST MYSTERIES – 60+ Detective Stories,' where his contributions stand alongside other eminent tales of intrigue and deduction. Twain's exploration of American society through various genres has left an indelible mark on literary history, influencing countless writers and readers alike. His world-renowned status is not just a reflection of his literary contributions but also his enduring commentary on the human condition.
