The pilgrim hawk : a love story by Glenway Wescott( Book )
34 editions published between 1940 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 776 libraries worldwide
This powerful short novel describes the events of a single afternoon. Alwyn Towers, an American expatriate and sometime novelist, is staying with a friend outside of Paris, when a well-heeled, itinerant Irish couple drops in - with Lucy, their trained hawk, a restless, sullen, disturbingly totemic presence. Lunch is prepared, drink flows. A masquerade, at once harrowing and farcical, begins. A work of classical elegance and concision, The Pilgrim Hawk stands with Faulkner's The Bear as one of the finest American short novels: a beautifully crafted story that is also a poignant evocation of the implacable power of love

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 198 libraries worldwide
"The travel albums of photographer George Platt Lynes, publisher Monroe Wheeler, and writer Glenway Wescott are illuminating documents of the American expatriate years. Together, this extraordinary menage-a-trois spent the heady inter-war period frequenting Paris, Villefranche-sur-Mer, and other European cities, meeting up with such lively personalities as Thornton Wilder, Jean Cocteau, Katherine Anne Porter, Man Ray, Rene Crevel, and Christian Berard. Inspired and encouraged by Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, and Jane Heap, all three men went on to pursue vibrant careers in the arts. Platt Lynes became a celebrated photographer, beginning in 1931; Wheeler started the extraordinary small press, Harrison of Paris, in 1930, before commencing a thirty-year career at New York's Museum of Modern Art; and Wescott became a bestselling fiction writer, first in 1927, with several highly acclaimed novels. The photographs are accompanied by two new original texts that help to interpret this remarkable triangular relationship, and that provide a context for this virtual who's who of the 1920s and 1930s."--BOOK JACKET

Goodbye, Wisconsin by Glenway Wescott( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 103 libraries worldwide
SHORT STORIES. Rural Wisconsin was still a wilderness in these early 1920s stories by Glenway Wescott. The distances between farms and small towns seemed great in those days. So, too, was the struggle of social order and religion against poverty, nature, and a stubborn streak of lawlessness. But the real adventure in these stories is in Wescott's deep understanding of human nature. His characters may be tragic, heroic, comic, or inspiring but, if there is one theme here, it is the search for personal freedom
