"Here is a biography that does full justice to one of the most controversial American intellectuals of this century. Frances Kiernan has interviewed dozens of McCarthy's friends, former lovers, literary and political comrades-in-arms, awestruck admirers, amused observers, and bitter adversaries to produce a work rich in ironic judgment, delicious gossip, and eloquent testimony."--Jacket." ;
