On the question, “What author, living or dead, would you want to write your biography?”

(or somesuch interrogation)

Mark Twain, hands down. Once any thinking person escapes his less interesting school-reading-list offerings, his wit, humor, bite and charm are so captivating. There is something of a kindred spirit there for me. I'd be comfortable with him walking around in the trails of my life.

Or Oscar Wilde, for much the same reason.

Maybe I could just have Dorothy Parker summarize me in a few snarky lines.

That would be as fitting as anything I can imagine.

What about you? Who would you choose?

  2. Mark Twain is a shoe in. All good choices for you, especially the brevity of Dorothy Parker.
