The Faulkner-Cowley File: Letters and Memories, 1944-1962.
New York: Viking, 1966. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with light toning to the rear panel. By 1944, Faulkner had published seventeen books including novels, stories and poems but not oneof them was in print and he was considered "finished" as a writer. In early 1944, critic and literary historian Malcolm Cowley had reread Faulkner's works and had begun work on a critical assessment of the patterns in Faulkner's canon of work. Cowley sent Faulkner a letter asking for some information and thus began their on-going correspondence that is here published for the first time. The result of Cowley's revisting Faulkner's writing was a critical reevaluation of his genius. Item #27635
