"A farce about mistaken identities and switched roles is presented here. Completely hilarious with amazing situations and twists, this is a book that cannot be put down. It is about an American who is highly impressed by the British peerage and a British who wises to try to live life as an American. A hilarious work page after page."

The American Claimant is an 1892 novel by American humorist and writer Mark Twain. Twain wrote the novel with the help of phonographic dictation, the first author (according to Twain himself) to do so. This was also (according to Twain) an attempt to write a book without mention of the weather, the first of its kind in fictitious literature. Indeed, all the weather is contained in an appendix, at the back of the book, which the reader is encouraged to turn to from time to time.

"The American Claimant" is a comedy of mistaken identities and multiple role switches―fertile and familiar Mark Twain territory. Its cast of characters include an American enamored of British hereditary aristocracy and a British earl entranced by American democracy.Twain uses this over-the-top comic frame to explore some serious issues as well-such as the construction of self and identity, the role of the press in society, and the moral and social questions raised by capitalism and industrialization in the United States. A unique melange of science fiction and fantasy, romance, farce, and political satire, Twain's least-known comic novel is both thought-provoking and entertaining.

Excerpt from The American Claimant Yes, you confess. That puppy, that shame to his birth and caste, who holds all hereditary lordships and privilege to be usurpation, all nobility a tinsel sham, all aristocratic institutions a fraud, all inequalities in rank a legalized crime and an infamy, and no bread honest bread that a man doesn't earn by his own work - work, pah - and the old patrician brushed imagin ary labor-dirt from his white hands. You have come to hold just those opinions yourself, I suppose, he added with a sneer. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

THE AMERICAN CLAIMANT is a less-known, but brilliantly satirical novel, which ranks behind THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN and PUDDIN'HEAD WILSON, but is still of major interest, as anything by Mark Twain does. Among the "Merry Tales" is a searing dissection of the follies and illusions of war, "A Private History of a Campaign That Failed."
