The second volume of The Autobiography of Mark Twain has just been published -- a scant 113 years after his death. Volume One, published in 2010, was a bestseller. The 700-page book is filled with the author's pictures and letters and thoughts he dictated to a stenographer. Among the highlights: Twain's recollections of Helen Keller, whom he described as the "8th Wonder of the World."
