The Mark Twain Century is Up

May 24, 2010

Exciting news:

“The creator of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and some of the most frequently misquoted catchphrases in the English language left behind 5,000 unedited pages of memoirs when he died in 1910, together with handwritten notes saying that he did not want them to hit bookshops for at least a century.

That milestone has now been reached, and in November the University of California, Berkeley, where the manuscript is in a vault, will release the first volume of Mark Twain’s autobiography. The eventual trilogy will run to half a million words, and shed new light on the quintessentially American novelist.”

Parts of the writings have been published before, apparently, but most has never been seen by the public. Should be quite a read, if The War Prayer, also a postmortem publication, is any indication.

P.S. This means, of course, that come November you’ll have to get the new Twain biography along with the brand new Uncle John’s Heavy Duty Bathroom Reader. Of course.
