Mark Twain is a giant of American literature, but mostly for characters he created. The people in his real life get much less attention.
Or did, until the publication of his writing about his loved ones; his wife and daughters and household staff.
Editor Benjamin Griffin put much of that work in A Family Sketch and Other Private Writings.
Griffin is one of the editors at the Mark Twain Project, aimed at putting previously unknown Twain writing before the public.
Griffin joined us in early 2015, and we replay that interview here.
