One hundred years after the death of Mark Twain, the publication of his autobiography by UC Press is looking like the publishing phenomenon of this new century. The excitement caught even UC Press by surprise as their first print run sold out, and they are churning out more as fast as they can. Here at UPB, we have just put a picture of the book’s cover on our bestseller table because we can’t keep enough copies of the book itself in stock! We are looking forward to our event with editor Benjamin Griffin on December 16th. For interesting background on the autobiography and the Bancroft Library’s Mark Twain Project, see http://www.eastbayexpress.com/ebx/mark-twains-last-stunt/Content?oid=2138536.
And this is just Volume One!
