A few months back, I sent you the link to my story on the fate of Mark
Twain's Greenwich Village home. I've got another weird Twain story -- this
time in Slate, and this time on the long history of Twain's autobiography
and the various editors who broke his embargo and then found themselves
embroiled in mini-scandals. The essay includes everything from Cold War
intrigue to the author of The Power of Positive Thinking. Plus, of course, a
lot of Twain.
Anyway, seemed like something the Twain-L readers might enjoy.
