Abstract:

Alfred Kazin, one of the central figures of America's intellectual life in the 20th century, takes us into his own life and times. His autobiography encompasses, within a single large, fluent narrative, a personal story openly told; an inside look at New York's innermost intellectual circles; and brilliantly astute observations of the literary accomplishments, atmosphere, and fads of the 1940's, '50's, and '60's in the context of America's shifting political gales. Every image and incident is filtered through Kazin's own strong sensibility'powerfully informed by his Russian immigrant-socialist background, by the resurgent sense of his own Jewishness, and by the "raw power, mass, and volume" of the city he is unfailingly drawn to. New York is itself a central character in his book as in his life'a life superbly told, in a book that will be of fascination to everyone interested in American writing and writers.
