Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Most of us bristle because she publishes so much—two novels a year, plays, poetry, essays, short stories for more than 35 years. Why then would anyone want to read a biography of a writer we want to avoid? She is too much around. Precisely so that, if we misunderstand her, which many of us do, we can begin to know a literary talent who has been an indelible presence in American letters since she arrived.
Balzacian in her generous curiosity about American life, and Jamesian in her eye for detail, this literary omnipresence is wonderfully explored. Johnson can at times be too protective and loyal to his subject; but he presents the phenomenon of JCO in human terms. An important book." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 461-475) and index.
