There being some kind of cosmic rule that I am only given subjects to
write on, about which I know nothing, would the members of this forum be
so kind as to recommend those biographical works essential to
I've only got three at hand: Rasmussen's Facts-on-File one-volume /Mark
Twain A to Z/; Kaplan's biography, and Emerson's /Mark Twain: A Literary
I'm looking for sources that are as detailed, and specific , as possible.
Another question, please: other than the Mark Twain Letters & Project,
what other on-line sources might be helpful?
My emphasis, God help us, is biographical, as compared to say, literary.
