Mark Twain Tops Bestseller List ... 100 Years After His Death

Autobiography of Mark TwainMark Twain’s name appears on high school reading lists all over the country, and even decades years after his death he was a controversial character. Twain’s stories have been repeated targets of censorship, in some cases being burned and banned in bulk. The man himself was a colorful character, who is well-known for being a prolific drinker, gambler and rider of riverboats.

Now, a century after his death, he’s at the very top of the Amazon bestseller list … with a brand-new book.

Twain’s last book, Autobiography of Mark Twain, is only one of many books to be published after Twain’s death … but it is perhaps the most anticipated. Twain decreed that the book must wait for publication for 100 years after his death, which occurred in April 1910.

The first volume of the lengthy book will be available on November 15.
