New Mark Twain Autobiography

Postby G. Alvin Simons » Sat August 14th, 2010, 5:56 pm

I noticed on Book TV today that an autobioghraphy of Mark Twain will be released soon. It seems like Mr. Clemens stipulated that the material comprising the autobiography could not be released until 100 years after his death. The advance word is that the wait was definitely worth it. Just a little info sharing for those who might have missed it, especially Miss Celia Hayes.

That will certainly make for interesting reading. I love Twain's humor.

And bang on cue, I see that Val Kilmer is making a film about Twain...
