First off a great lede: “Exactly a century after rumours of his death turned out to be entirely accurate, one of Mark Twain’s dying wishes is at last coming true: …”
Second off, a great story… Twain’s 5,000 unedited pages of memoirs which he banned from publication for 100 years will be published in November. What sorts of juicy stuff did he want hidden away for all of this time?
Let’s remember that Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) was former newspaper man working or writing for the Hannibal Journal, Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, Buffalo Express, Sacramento Union, Alta California, New York Saturday Press.
I can hardly wait for November!
