MEDIA REVIEWS
"Editors Earl Rovit adn Arthur Waldhorn have collected musings on two of America's greatest novelists. Hemingway and Faulkner in Their Time compares and contrasts these contemporaries, who never met, through the articles, journals, and interviews of their peers. These peers include Sherwood Anderson, Gertrude Stein, John Steinbeck, and Eudora Welty. While some of these reflections are notably gossipy, what emerges is a portrait of two writers, each skeptical and ironic, each giving bold, brash commentary on American life, whose writing styles - and lifestyles - were near polar opposites; yet both men were pioneers in American literature, and neither wrote to please others." -Foreword, Sept/Oct 05
"This book is anexcellent compendium of familiar voices (Anderson, Stein, and Fitzgerald) andvoices not at first associated with Hemingway and Faulkner (Frost, Nabokov, andBogan) whose assessments are nicely interwoven with the editors' commentary.The result is an admirably researched companion to Hemingway and Faulkner'soeuvres...Rovit and Waldhorn have given us a strong work of Hemingway-Faulknerscholarship showing how America's pre-eminent Modernists were 'locked [...] intowhat appears to be a remarkable shared identity' during their heated andcomplex rivalry. "Hemingway and Faulknerin Their Time "does admirably well in delineating the dynamics amongHemingway, Faulkner, and their contemporaries dynamics rife with criticism, sniping, and (begrudging) professional admiration" - "The Hemingway Review", Fall 2005--,
