Abstract:

Thanking him for his praise of his works; recommending "Le roman américaind'aujourd'hui," (1926) by Régis Michaud; praising "The Shadowy Third, "(1923) by Ellen Glasgow; saying that writers of the 1920s have been "huddled away" because of "their failure to offer any panacea"; explaining why he originally conceived of "There were two pirates," (1946) as a longer work; discussing his story "The Wedding Jest"; admitting his lack of interest in Melville; pointing out errors in Wagenknecht's "The fireside book of romance," (1948); saying his new book, "The Devil's Own Dear Son," (1949), was originally to be called "I go to my father," and that he wrote the first draft in the first person but changed it to third person; saying he liked Sherwood Anderson "far more as a person than as a writer"; praising Marjorie Rawlings; discussing his invention of the concept of "social history"; criticizing Willa Cather's work; evaluating Wagenknecht's pseudonymous novel "Nine before Fotheringhay, "(1966); and recalling a meeting with Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.
