Mark Twain Interview
Q: Mr.Twain, why did you choose the allusion to Robin Hood in the woods scene?
A: Well, I'm not a very good writer, as you may very well know, so when I came to this part I didn't know what else to do.
Q: You had a scene where children were smoking and got sick. By writing this, do you mean to say that you disaprove of smoking?
A: Of course not! I would put out a good word on it for any child!
Q: This book is based off events in your childhood. Did you actually see a murder?
A: Yes, I did. That moment has scarred me mentally and will continue to for the rest of my life. That is why my writing is so odd.
