Literary Nonfiction. Poetry. Updated and illustrated biography of 19th century master of fiction, travel writing and criticism, Fitz Hugh Ludlow, with his poetry and letters published for the first time. Reportedly Dickens' favorite American writer, he was an early New York City Bohemian, and his friends and colleagues ranged from Walt Whitman and Mark Twain to Brigham Young. Dulchinos masterfully weaves contemporary accounts with many family missives to draw the amazing and tragically short life of Ludlow, a nearly lost central figure of American letters.
Donald P. Dulchinos is the author of Forbidden Sacraments: The Survival of Shamanism in Western Civilization, and Neurosphere: The Convergence of Evolution, Group Mind, and the Internet. He has found time between these projects for a career in the information and telecommunications technology industry. Author City: USA
