Arguing that Rawlings has been underestimated and underappreciated as one of the great American writers, Tarr and Kinser bring together for the first time the work that contributed to her once stellar position as a hero of American letters." "This collection includes Rawlings's childhood publications in the Washington Post and McCall's Magazine, early stories and poems written while she was a student at the University of Wisconsin, feature articles for newspapers in Louisville, Kentucky, and Rochester, New York, and her work for the YWCA in New York City. The Uncollected Writings of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings -- juvenilia, college writing, newspaper pieces, and stories of life in Florida -- is an intimate glimpse at an important writer mastering her craft."--Book jacket."@en
