Abstract:

"Selected Letters of Dawn Powell, 1913-1965 traces a writer's fifty-two-year journey from her childhood in a small Ohio town to the glitter of Manhattan cosmopolitan life." "Living most of her life in Greenwich Village, Powell supported herself as a writer through the Depression and two world wars while nursing an autistic son, an alcoholic husband, and her own parade of illnesses. In her correspondence we find the record of a life that produced fifteen novels, ten plays, and more than one hundred stories." "Letters to such luminaries as Edmund Wilson, John Dos Passos, and the legendary editor Max Perkins are filled with gossip and literary commentary; they also provide and in-depth look at Powell's own writing-in-progress and the events and ideas that obsessed her."--Jacket.
