The recent publication of Mark Twain's (real) autobiography has inspired cartoonist Michael Kupperman to a full-blown book-length masterpiece of hilarity. In Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010, the satirist is still alive due to a spell cast by a wizard. Readers eager to see how Twain hunted the Yeti ("Come out here and face me, you snow-covered coward "), met the Six Million Dollar Man, had a love affair with Mamie Eisenhower ("Boy oh boy, this lady was one hot dish"), and accidentally became involved in X-rated films, will devour this tome, which of course is augmented with Kupperman's hilariously deadpan illustrations.
