Publisher: Viking, New York

Publication Date: 1973

Edition: First Printing of the First Edition..


A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, price-clipped dust jacket. During World War I Malcolm Cowley was a reporter from the front for The Pittsburgh Gazette and an American Field Service ambulance driver along with Hemingway, Cummings and so many other "lost generation" writers. After the war, he returned to Paris and rubbed shoulders among the American literary artist expatriates in 1920's Paris. The book consists of eleven chapters: two bookend chapters set up and sum up this generational literary era (I.The Other War as the alpha and XI.Taps for the Lost Generation as the omega), seven chapters each are devoted to well-known writers (be they mainly poets such as Cummings or Crane or chiefly novelists such as Faulkner and Fitzgerald) and Hemingway receives two chapters--one focusing on the young writer of the Paris years and the penultimate chapter extolling the virtues of the Old Lion during the later period of his career.
