In this week's "By the Book" feature in the New York Times, Ken Burns says, "One writer I love is Willa Cather. People say, Was it Melville or Hemingway or Twain who wrote the great American novel, meaning “Moby-Dick” or “A Farewell to Arms” or obviously “Huckleberry Finn,” where, as Hemingway rightly said, American literature begins. But what about “O Pioneers!” or “My Ántonia”? Later, in response to a question about what three people he would invite to a literary dinner party, Burns chose Twain, Tolstoy, and Cather.
