The Real Mark Twain, Part Two of Two  (aired 1/12/2006)
Samuel Longhorne Clemens, alias Mark Twain, is regarded by many as America’s greatest writer. Ernest Hemmingway said all American writing begins with Huckleberry Finn. Twain’s talents made him the greatest global American celebrity of his time. But beyond the witty turns of phrase and social critique, there was a man who drank and gambled too much, who went bankrupt, who could be viciously mean, and was a deserter from the confederate army. So who was the real Mark Twain?
