Abstract:

The collection contains the literary correspondence and writings of Maeve Brennan relating to her relationship with her editor at the NEW YORKER, William Shawn, from 1960 to 1976. In letters to Shawn, Brennan expresses her views on Irish history and the work of other authors such as Camus and David Stacton, in addition to thoughts about New York City's social scene for her column at the NEW YORKER, the "Long-Winded Lady." The correspondence also documents financial arrangements made with the NEW YORKER while Brennan took leave at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire in 1968. The collection also contains writings by Brennan, including drafts of columns for the "Long-Winded Lady," a book review, and a short story entitled "The birthday," which features the Bagot family, a recurring set of characters in other short stories.
