Mark Twain's move to the Bay Area at the beginning of the Civil War sparked a writer's renaissance in San Francisco. Ben Tarnoff's latest book, "The Bohemians," chronicles this golden age in literature through the adventures of Twain, his friend-turned-adversary Bret Harte, essayist Charles Warren Stoddard and forgotten poet Ina Coolbrith. Tarnoff joins us to talk about the book.
