About this product
- DescriptionElizabeth Bowen began reviewing books in August 1935. By that time she was already an experienced fiction writer with four short-story collections and four vels to her credit. Her fifth vel, The House in Paris, was published on August 26, 1935, just nine days after her first book review appeared in the New Statesman. She reviewed regularly for that journal, kwn for its commitment to leftist politics, until 1943. While she continued to write vels and short stories, she accepted requests to review for Purpose, The Spectator, The Listener, The Bell, The Observer, and other publications. From 1941 until 1950, and again from 1954 until 1958, she filed weekly columns for The Tatler and Bystander. Especially after she began to travel to the United States in the 1950s, she was asked to review books for the New York Times Book Review and the New York Herald Tribune. This fascinating collection of reviews is filled with first impressions of vels, autobiographies, memoirs, illustrated books, biographies of politicians and artists, short-story collections, and literary criticism. Books spark statements from Bowen about general principles of fictional technique; she articulates her understandingof the inner workings of fiction incidentally, while providing an opinion about the book at hand. In this volume, Hepburn draws together reviews that Bowen left uncollected, as well as several personal and literary essays, in order to make them accessible to a broader audience.
