That the cultural upheaval rent by the cataclysmic disruptions of the American Civil War radically shaped boomtown San Francisco is undeniable, albeit in a sometimes unexpected fashion. In his latest book “The Bohemians: Mark Twain and the San Francisco Writers Who Reinvented American Literature,” Ben Tarnoff explores the small community of artists, intellectuals and innovative writers that made such a huge impact on a young Samuel Clemens and in turn, the world of literature at large.
