Bright Book of Life: American Novelists & Storytellers from Hemingway to Mailer.
by [Literary Criticism] Kazin, Alfred.

Publisher Information:
Little Brown,, Boston:: 1973..

A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus, lightly edge-worn dust jacket with some rubbing & light soiling to front and rear panels. Alfred Kazin was an American writer and literary critic, many of whose writings depicted the immigrant experience in early twentieth century America. In this volume Kazin focuses his writing skills on the post-World War II novels of Mailer, Hemingway, Faulkner, Cheever, Bellow, Pynchon, Nabokov and others. The book is both a recapitulation of modernism and an evaluation of American writers who have achieved prominence since 1945. Modernism, a favorite topic of Kazin, is in his view a literary revolution marked by spontaneity and individuality but lacking in precisely the mass culture appeal necessary to its survival.
