Fundamental books to Mark Twain in Washington #1 _ Mr. Clemens and Mark Twain: A Biography by Justin Kaplan

The 1967 Pulitzer Prize-winning book for Biography / Autobiography was Justin Kaplan’s  Mr. Clemens and Mark Twain: A Biography.

I am reading through this now and find it quite worthy of its award. Kaplan begins his work with Twain in his early 3o’s and covers his stint in Washington artfully and thoroughly.
