Justin Kaplan (1925-2014), Winner of 2 National Book Awards

Justin Kaplan, Literary Biographer, Dies at 88.  (The New York Times, 3/3/2014)

From birth to death. The biography, which also received a National Book Award, employed an organizing device, unusual for its day, to which Mr. Kaplan would return. Instead of arranging his subject’s life chronologically, he portrayed it out of sequence, opening the book with Twain at 31.
