Grant and Twain




In the spring of 1884, Ulysses S. Grant heeded the advice of Mark Twain and finally agreed to write his memoirs. Little did Grant or Twain realize that this seemingly straightforward decision would profoundly alter not only both their lives but the course of American literature. In this bold and colorful narrative, veteran writer Mark Perry reconstructs the heady months when Grant and Twain became fast friends who inspired and cajoled each other to create two quintessentially American masterpieces: Grant’s Personal Memoirs and Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. A story of friendship and history, inspiration and ruin, Grant and Twain captures a pivotal moment in the lives of two towering figures of the Gilded Age.
