What a different portrait of a man than some of the other biographies portray him -- he really worked hard to have a certain image of himself. While much of it was true, it was interesting to see that even "way back when" people knew how to spin their own story to make themselves more marketable. I admire Mr. Carver and all he accomplished, it was intersting to see other sides of his personality though!
