mark twain copy 2


{via this is mark twain}


hello holiday gift for fathers everywhere! my dad is quite the samuel clemens mark twain fan. i was reading the nyt review and instantly went on the this is mark twain website(which is fantastic, by the way). the book is a four-pound memoir that is flying off shelves nationwide. i hope i will be able to snag a copy as soon as the next flush arrives. doesn't it look so enticing? 500,000 words makes this hefty tome the perfect night-time reading book. a book you can savor and enjoy every moment of. maybe not a great subway book or airplane book... unless you want to squeeze in some bicep curls as you travel ;)

What I'm wondering is why he insisted it not be published until one hundred years after his death. What part of his life was he afraid would disgrace his living family? Or was it just a ploy to ensure his continued fame? Inquiring minds want to know!

I'm dying to read this, it must be pretty juicy if he didn't want it coming out for 100 years! And I agree, great gift idea for dads:)
