Review quote

"Russell achieves a splendidly multidimensional view of Masters, the complex man as well as the prolific writer." Library Journal "This is the first full biography of Masters, and it is also likely to be the last, Russell has done his job so well...Crisply written, meticulously researched and documented, this is the biography of Masters for the foreseeable future." James Hurt, author of Writing Illinois: The Prairie, Lincoln, and Chicago
