Title: Charles & Kathleen Norris : The Courtship ...
Publisher: The Book Club of California, San Francisco
Publication Date: 1993
Book Condition: Collectible-Very Good
Cloth. Illustrations. 400 copies printed. Spine label. In the Preface the author notes that he had been writing about the major American novelist, Frank Norris, for over fifteen years before he read any of the works of the younger brother Charles, and his wife, the former Kathleen Thompson. "The following pages tell a dramatic story of Charles's and Kathleen's clairvoyant confidence in each other's talent and tenacity and their mutual preparations for the national and international acclaim that would be theirs." "This then is a profile of the literary genesis of an extraordinary couple who achieved more than their lofty goals and established brilliant careers that have been buried by years of neglect". From the Introduction: "While Kathleen wrote compellingly of tempests in the parlor (for the most part) with titles like 'The Rich Mrs. Burgoyne', 'The Heart of Rachel'. Charles shook the complacency of his reading public with unflinching studies of controversial social, economic, religious and political issues." "His novels delve exhaustively into such issues as business ethics, divorce, marriage and the business career, the career woman, birth control, the creative artist's dilemma, and national and international politics.".
