Faculty Book: Fred Kaplan
Coffee with Mark Twain
(New York: Sterling; London: Duncan Baird, 2008)
Mark Twain shaped our view of childhood, the frontier spirit, slavery, and humankind’s follies and pretensions. Revel now in his caustic wit, tall tales, and colorfully expressed opinions, all told to a distinguished professor and biographer. This master of repartee regales us with stories about his many different guises, from humorist to riverboat pilot to inventor of the self-pasting photograph album. Fred Kaplan is a distinguished professor emeritus of English at the Graduate Center.
