"From her first awkward poems and stories, to her finely crafted essays as a newspaper and feature writer, to her Florida Period highlighted by the Pulitzer Prize for The Yearling in 1939, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings became, in the words of Margaret Mitchell, America's "born perfect storyteller." 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."--Jacket

In the 250 poems collected here, Rawlings presents homespun advice on such subjects as the trials and tribulations of being a cook, mother, friend, relative, and neighbor. She dedicates many to her favorite subjects: gardening, cooking, pets, and nature. Throughout, her goal is to entertain, to educate, and to give a voice to the housewife who sees her role as a creative and important one. In the process, of course, she also invariably reveals a great deal about herself

As ever yours : the letters of Max Perkins and Elizabeth Lemmon by Maxwell E Perkins( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
"Maxwell E. Perkins, famed editor of such literary luminaries as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Zora Neale Hurston, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Thomas Wolfe, was a man whose personal and professional lives often intersected. Nowhere is this more evident than in his correspondence with Elizabeth Lemmon, the Virginia socialite who became his long-distance confidante. Despite the platonic nature of their relationship, others realized the intensity of their connection. The letter contained in As Ever Yours, published here for the first time, reveal an epistolary love story - and they provide fresh insights into Perkins the man and Perkins the editor." "As Ever Yours contains 121 of Perkins's letters to Lemmon as well as the 20 extant letters from Lemmon to Perkins; the rest are presumed lost or destroyed. Letters from Fitzgerald and Wolfe also shed light on the pair's dynamic relationship." "The letters make for compelling reading as Perkins details his personal life in New Jersey and Connecticut and his professional life in the New York publishing world. The writers he discovered, edited, and encouraged at Charles Scribner's Sons emerge as endearing and believable characters, brought to life in Perkins's vivid narrative voice. He is witty, self-deprecating, and painterly in his descriptions of people and locales together with the social milieu of his day. Protected by distance, Max used his letter-writing relationship to unburden himself in a way he could not with his coworkers, his authors, or even his wife - and these letters simultaneously highlight his editorial judgment and disclose his private feelings." "Edited by Rodger L. Tarr, As Ever Yours will be important to students and scholars of the history of publishing. The Perkins-Lemmon letters illuminate the thoughts and experiences of the greatest literary editor of the twentieth century."--Jacket

The letters of Ernest Hemingway by Ernest Hemingway( Book )
3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 3: 1926-1929, featuring many previously unpublished letters, follows a rising star as he emerges from the literary Left Bank of Paris and moves into the American mainstream. Maxwell Perkins, legendary editor at Scribner's, nurtured the young Hemingway's talent, accepting his satirical novel Torrents of Spring (1926) in order to publish what would become a signature work of the twentieth century: The Sun Also Rises (1926). By early 1929 Hemingway had completed A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway's letters of this period also reflect landmark events in his personal life, including the dissolution of his first marriage, his remarriage, the birth of his second son, and the suicide of his father. As the volume ends in April 1929, Hemingway is setting off from Key West to return to Paris and standing on the cusp of celebrity as one of the major writers of his time
