Conversations with Malcolm Cowley (Hardback)Thomas Daniel Young (editor)
- We can order this
Full of insights and strong opinions, direct, salty, Cowley converses candidly with his interviewers about himself and about many subjects and personages that have shaped our national literature in the last century.
Throughout this volume Cowley gives vivid accounts of his close alliances with such widely diverse and individual authors as William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, Hart Crane, John Cheever, Jack Kerouac, and Ken Kesey.
From these interviews emerges a literary man who inspires the reader's renewed admiration and gratitude. In the common bond uniting great authors Cowley sees the manifestation of a Republic of Letters with laws, intelligence, and confraternity. These magnificently articulate interviews leave little doubt that Cowley is its elder statesman.
