Abstract:

Drawing from interviews with people who knew both writers, as well as letters between them and other documented evidence of their meetings, Lillios (English, U. of Central Florida) offers an intriguing and in-depth study of the friendship between writers Zora Neale Hurston and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. She describes their complicated interracial friendship during the 1940s, when both were at the height of their fame and creativity and had published successful memoirs--Hurston's Dust Tracks on a Road and Rawlings' Cross Creek--following their novels Their Eyes Were Watching God and The Yearling, respectively. Focusing on the year 1942, when the two met, she describes the development of their friendship, the development of their writing craft that culminated in their masterpieces, their memoirs, and how they influenced each other as they struggled to complete their last creative works.
