Synopsis: Book by
From Library Journal:
One of America's premier editors, Commins worked with Faulkner and O'Hara but reserved his warmest regard for longtime friend O'Neill. Commins's widow here charts that friendship from its beginnings to its forced dissolution. The letters are primarily to Commins from O'Neill and his last wife, Carlotta. O'Neill reciprocated Commins's devotion, as did Carlotta, who generally despised O'Neill's old acquaintances. But age and illness made Carlotta's suspicions of "outsiders" pathological, leading to ugly scenes. By O'Neill's death, he and Commins were cut off completely. This sad tale has been told before, but it has a special poignance in this format. For subject collections. Starr E. Smith, Georgetown Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
