9781564784575: Fever Vision: The Life and Works of Coleman Dowell (Scholarly Series)

From his birth in rural Kentucky during the Great Depression to his suicide in Manhattan in 1985, Coleman Dowell played many roles. He was a songwriter and lyricist for television. He was a model. He was a Broadway playwright. He served in the U.S. Army, both abroad and at home. And most notably, he was the author of novels that Edmund White, among others, has called "masterpieces." But Dowell was deeply troubled by a depression that hung over him his entire life. Pegged as both a Southern writer and a gay writer, he loathed such categorization, preferring to be judged only by his work. Fever Vision describes one of the most tormented, talented, and inventive writers of recent American literature, and shows how his eventful life contributed to the making of his incredible art.

About the Author:

Edmund White (b. Ohio, USA, 1940) is the author of many critically acclaimed books, the most recent being "The Flaneur". He was made an officer in the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and won a literary prize from the Festival of Deauville. He now teaches at Princeton University. His acclaimed autobiography, "My Lives", was published by Bloomsbury in 2006, while his play, " Terre Haute", was published by Methuen Drama in 2007.

Review:

"Gene Hayworth has done his homework by interviewing surviving family members and friends and by reading early drafts and letters and everything unpublished that the estate has made available. . . . This is a cautionary tale, perhaps--though what it mainly seems to be cautioning us against is a sentiment that overtakes most people with time: disappointment." --Edmund White, from the Introduction
