Powers also gives insight into the unique genius of Twain.
Although a lengthy book, it held my attention all the way through by sketching mark twain against the historical events unfolding as he lived each phase of his life.
I would think that anyone interested in writing, literature, and American history would enjoy Power's biography as thoroughly as I did.
