Abstract:

Frank Conroy, director of the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, has placed on deposit the holograph manuscripts of two of his books, Stop-time (1967) and Body & soul (1993). Some pages from the Stop-time manuscript have been digitized and can be viewed at http://www.uiowa.edu/~iww/conroy.htm. Conroy has also pointed out the remarkable similarity between the two versions (draft 1 and draft 2) of the second chapter of Body & soul that are present here: the first six pages of his first draft went missing and he was forced to rewrite them from memory. The pages were recovered much later and exhibit both overall similarity and interesting differences. Also available in the collection is a photocopy typescript of a short story, "My Harlem."
