Talk about a calling or a labor of love — one man has spent over four decades painting an exhaustive portrait of Mark Twain’s reading life.

Alan Gribben, cofounder of the Mark Twain Circle of America, will publish a three-volume work called Mark Twain's Literary Resources: A Reconstruction of His Library and Reading in May.
