Tell your ma, tell your pa, we're going to lead you back in time without a flaw.

Who am I?

During the War, I found time to write one of the greatest American novels ever. Unfortunately, the pressures of fame became too much and I became an infamous recluse. At least I didn't become a phony and my story is still taught in schools.
