Mark Twain Autobiography
Currently I am reading (or at least listening) to the Mark Twain’s autobiography on Kindle. I’ve learned several things already. For one, exploitation of artists by big business, the disingenuous, or the greedy is not a new phenomena. It unfortunately happened to Twain. I love the way Twain writes with such clarity. Re: editing he once said re: he would’ve written a shorter letter but didn’t have time. For his autobiography by to be released 100 years after his death and yet still speak the truth is what you strive for. My agent always says a writer should write what was true before he got here, what will be true while he is here, and what we true long after you are gone is except for King James I think Mark Twain did that as well as anyone. Twain’s autobiography is a must read (or listen) for a writer.
