Let's see how this holds up against your memoir, Sarah Palin!!!

The last decade of Mark Twain's life was spent writing a memoir that would never be seen. That was because he left strict instructions in his will that his autobiography not be published until after his death - 100 years after his death to be precise!

And guess what? Time's up!

Now that the milestone has been reached, the University of California , Berkley, where the manuscript is vaulted, will publish the first volume of the memoir in November. Eventually, there will be a whole trilogy of books, that is sure to shed new light on a revered author.

Hope it's very juicy!
