Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Fifty years ago the young Mr. Prokosch wrote a successful novel called The Asiatics, That brought him fame, a little money, and, most importantly, an introduction to every writer of note on both sides of the Atlantic, In this memoir Mr. Prokosch, who says he is cursed with total recall, reconstructs conversations that took place decades ago. We hear the voices of Gertrude Stein, Thomas Wolfe, W. H. Auden, Virginia Woolf, Walter de la Mare, George Santayana, and a whole host of others. The difficulty is, they say so little. Maybe they were just not the conversationalists we think they ought to be; maybe they did not unburden themselves, at least not to Mr. Prokosch. This is an interesting but rather thin account of one man's journey around the literary scene." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
