    After keeping us waiting for a century, Mark Twain will finally reveal all - News, Books - The Independent

    I'm looking forward to reading this. Twain was a great author, classical liberal, and quite a character.

    He was way ahead of his time in many of his social views (****** Jim is the most humane and warm person in Huck Finn) and Sam was a religious sceptic. I suspect a total atheist.

    His wife apparently convinced him to censor much of his opinion in preference to profit.

    This should be good.
