Description de l’éditeur
Once derided as a hopeless cynic, American author Ambrose Bierce now enjoys a solid literary reputation. Witty and sardonic, Bierce speaks to our own scandal-ridden times. His savage Civil War stories have become classics and his Devil's Dictionary is often quoted. In this brief biography, Bruce Watson explores the sorrow behind the wit, and probes Bierce's mysterious disappearance a century ago.
