Through historical fiction Douglas Savage has painted a psychological picture of novelist Stephen Crane. Against the backdrop of the lush countryside and treachery of Cuba just after the Spanish-American War, "A Mouthful of Dust" does what no biographer can do--examine the heart and soul of a twenty-seven-year-old writer grappling with his own death.
