Support The Stranger

And Elliott Bay Book Company hosts Laura Skandera Trombley tonight. Trombley is a Mark Twain expert. Her newest one is titled Mark Twain’s Other Woman: The Hidden Story of His Final Years. It's all about the women who tended to Twain in his last years, serving as his audience and his moral support. According to the Random House website for this book, the relationship turned sour and, in the last few months of his life, Twain would host press conferences denouncing her as “a liar, a forger, a thief, a hypocrite, a drunkard, a sneak, a humbug, a traitor, a conspirator, a filthy-minded & salacious slut pining for seduction.” Sounds fascinating.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here. And if you're planning on staying in and you're looking for personalized book recommendations, feel free to tell me the books you like and ask me what to read next over at Questionland.
