William Goyen was born in Trinity, Texas, in 1915 and died in 1983. His novels include In a Farther Country, Arcadio, and Come, the Restorer. Goyen was a master of the short story and a selection, Had I a Hundred Mouths, is also published by Serpent's Tail.Review:
?William Goyen?s The House of Breath is much more than a first novel of astonishing achievment. A profound sympathy with the humblest and poorest men and women combined with a great poetic insight constitute Mr Goyen?s wonderful and rare gift? Stephen Spender ?At his best, as in his first novel, The House of Breath, William Goyen managed to create an inspired flow of words... He reminds me of Malcolm Lowry in that he knows pity for what it is: a savageness, not a comfort? Robert Nye, Guardian
