A Common Life: Four Generations of American Literary Friendship and Influence

by ,

A masterful combination of literary biography and criticism that recalls four sets of important American friendships: Melville and Hawthorne, James and Wharton, Porter and Welty, and Bishop and Lowell. Laskin brilliantly articulates not only the support and sympathy each friend gave the other, but also the rivalries that threatened each friendship.
