The Autobiography of Mark Twain

Interview

Friday, November 12, 2010

A century after his death, Mark Twain has finally published his autobiography. It's not a cradle-to-grave memoir, but a kind of window into Twain's mind, full of memories and thoughts randomly strung together. Kurt talks with Robert Hirst, an editor of the volume, who explains why Twain went about writing what he called a "love letter from the grave."
