Literary Connecticut: The Hartford Wits, Mark Twain and the New Millennium

A tour through this New England state and the many writers who have lived and worked there.
 
Connecticut has produced and inspired a dazzling array of literary talent. Helen Keller’s adult stomping grounds were the woods and gardens of Easton, while Eugene O’Neill’s childhood home in New London found its way into the pages of his greatest work. In this book you’ll discover the secret passage to James Merrill’s study in Stonington, and navigate Hartford’s Nook Farm neighborhood—a home and hub of inspiration to Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mark Twain, and William Gillette.
 
With illustrations and photos, this local literary history discusses the poets, playwrights, novelists, and others who drove the same roads, frequented the same taverns, and read the same books as many citizens of the Constitution State today.
