Literary Badasses

A blog devoted to all the baddest authors and characters in the literary world.

Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens):
An original badass of the literary world. He enjoyed rowdy childhood games, lived out his boyhood dreams as a steam boat captain, fought briefly for the confederacy and produced some of the most beloved works of American literature. Twain was born during a visit by Halley’s Comet and he died the next time it appeared in the sky. A badass life for a badass man.
