Abstract:

"Uphill with Archie is a look at the life and the world of the great literary icon, poet Archibald MacLeish, by his youngest son. Partly an homage, partly an attempt to come to terms with the man (and the legend), Uphill with Archie speaks to all sons and daughters who have never completely resolved their feelings about powerful parents." "In Uphill with Archie, William MacLeish paints an indelible portrait of a priveleged world, a charmed existence in which he moved from pleasing his father to making his father proud. Affectionate, moving, and marvelously evocative, it is a book sure to appeal to readers of such classic works as Calvin Tompkins's Living Well Is the Best Revenge and Susan Cheever's books about her parents, Home Before Dark and Treetops."--BOOK JACKET.
