really liked it
bookshelves: biography-ya, history-ya

Collier’s use of narratives finds particular life in this biography of a narrative master. We see Twain as an author, permanent shaper of popular culture, quote machine, and as the man behind the legend. This book is a companion not only to a Twain novel, but to history courses that explore the identity of America itself.
