Channeling Mark Twain by Carol Muske-Dukes
This book is based on the real experiences of the author who taught poetry at a woman's prison. The plot is sprinkled with literary references and the original poetry of the fictional personalities, one of whom claims to be the illegitimate great-granddaughter of Mark Twain. I am gearing up to teach Huckleberry Finn so this was an appropriate read.
