Think Back on Us: A Comtemporary Chronicle of the 1930's. Edited by Henry Dan Piper.
by [Literary Criticism] Cowley, Malcolm.

Publisher Information:
Southern Illinois University, Carbondale : 1967.

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, price-clipped dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities. Malcolm Cowley was one of America's best known and widely respected social and literary critics, a career that began in earnest in 1930 when he was asked to join the staff of The New Republic. From that auspicious beginning until his death in 1989, Cowley chronicled America's literary and social history with a keen eye for detail and a clarity of style. Editor Dan Piper has compiled this impressive collection of essays and reviews roughly from the stock market crash of 1929 to the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. The book is divided into two sections: The Social Record which illuminates the issues, problems and ideas of the period and The Literary Record with articles that deal chiefly with literary values. Cowley has provided a new retrospective essay, "Adventures of a Book Reviewer" especially for this volume. 392 pages
