Sherwood Anderson's Memoirs: A Critical Edition. Newly Edited from the Original Manuscripts by Ray Lewis White.
by Anderson, Sherwood.

Publisher Information:
University of North Carolina,, Chapel Hill:: 1969..

A Fine copy in a Very Good plus dust jacket. with some light sunning to the spine and front panel. In 1942, one year after his death, Anderson's memoirs were published after having been drastically cut and in many cases rewritten by the editor, Paul Rosenfeld. So altered was Anderson's original intent and text, that Rosenfeld's edition of the memoirs is almost a different book from what Anderson created. Some twenty years later Ray White, a renowned Anderson scholar, retranscribed over 2000 pages of Anderson's original manuscripts shedding a fresh light on the life and work of the author of Winesburg, Ohio, one of the single most influential prose works in modern American literature. In these memoirs, Anderson retraces his place in the Chicago Renaissance of 1910--20 as well as his friendships with Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Carl Sandburg, Thomas Wolfe and other major writers of the twentieth century.
