"The correspondence touches on many facets of both literary life and life itself, offering unusual glimpses into the unconventional world in which Gordon and Ford moved. The letters reveal much about the economic hardships of writers and artists during the Depression era, and the two authors exchange advice on how to make a decent living from their work. Gordon's letters in particular give vivid and often amusing insights into the life of a struggling writer. Gordon and Ford also comment on a number of well-known authors and editors of their day - including Katherine Anne Porter, Maxwell Perkins, Robert Penn Warren, Ellen Glasgow, and William Faulkner. More important, they discuss each other's work and exchange thoughts on literary technique.
On the informal side, they share their passion for raising vegetables and chickens."--BOOK JACKET. "Brita Lindberg-Seyersted's introduction provides a biographical and historical context for the correspondence, and her annotations to the letters identify the many literary personages and allusions they include."--Jacket.
