Mark Twain's Full Autobiography to be Published 100 Years After His Death
Posted on May 24, 2010
Mark Twain's autobiography is finally going to be published 100 years after his death. The autobiography has been kept locked in a vault at the University of California at Berkeley since his death 1910. The Independent reports that Mark Twain may have wanted the one hundred year delay so he would not have to worry about offending friends.
Excerpts from the autobiography have been published before but the complete manuscript has never been published in full. Twain's autobiography will arrive in bookstores in November. The Independent says the autobiography is being published as a three-volume trilogy that runs about half a million words. You can read more about Mark Twain here on the official website from the Estate of Mark Twain.
