About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of nine essays offers Michener's reflections on Ernest Hemingway, Margaret Mitchell, Truman Capote, and his own literary education, and includes his first published short story, "Who Is Virgil T. Fry?"

From Library Journal:

In this collection of nine essays and a handful of unexceptional verse, Michener's best topic is himself. In "Collectors, Forgers--and a Writer" he reflects on the books, authors, and personalities that influenced him as a college student. These memories are imbued with warmth and even passion as the young Michener becomes inspired by the intelligence and eccentricities of his mentors. Michener's first short story, "Who Is Virgil T. Fry?" originally published in 1941, appears here as well with a brief self-commentary. These essays are generally compelling and skillfully crafted, although an overtone of false modesty is occasionally present (perhaps understandable for such an immensely successful writer). Also included are pieces on Margaret Mitchell and Marcus Goodrich. Michener fans and others with literary interests (even those not attracted to his epic novels) will find this volume worthwhile. For public and academic collections.
