Mark Twain Autobiography a Hit

The New York Times recently reported that when editors at the University of California Press pondered the possible demand for Autobiography of Mark Twain, a $35, four-pound, 500,000-word doorstopper of a memoir, they kept their expectations modest with a planned print run of 7,500 copies.  Now it is a smash hit across the country, landing on best-seller lists and going back to press six times, for a total print run  so far  of 275,000. The publisher cannot print copies quickly enough, leaving some bookstores and online retailers stranded without copies just as the holiday shopping season begins.
