Everbest Ever: Virgil Thomson's Correspondence with Bay Area Friends Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Dean (history, Brown U.) analyzes the emergence and development of sexuality in North American and European cultures from the late 1800s to the 1990s. She argues that a history of sexuality is an account of the changing relationship between anatomy and cultural expectations for men and women. Gender and selfhood, sexology, the sexual revolution, obscenity law, violence are among the dimensions she examines.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

The record Thomson's correspondence with composer and writer Charles Shere, soprano Margery Tede, and other San Francisco friends. Editorial annotations place the letters in context.
