Malcolm Cowley made his literary reputation as the preeminent American literary critic and editor of his lifetime. His analysis and editing of William Faulkner's work established Faulkner as a great American writer and saved his work from obscurity. He and first wife Marguerite moved to France where Cowley was attracted by the intellectual world developing there following World War I. In Paris, Cowley became connected to writers of the “Lost Generation,” including Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein. Cowley is probably best known for the editing of The Portable Faulkner, a collection of William Faulkner's short stories and excerpts of longer works that lifted the author out of obscurity and established his reputation as a great writer. Faulkner later acknowledged Cowley's contribution to his career: “I owe Malcolm Cowley the kind of debt no man could ever repay,” Faulkner wrote.
