Description

Billie Smith delivers an insightful study of an important but neglected writer. This critical survey of the career of Edward Newhouse promises to be an invaluable resource, not just for study of that writer but for its panoramic view of left-wing writing of the 1930s. The story of Newhouse's career path from proletarian writer to New Yorker regular deserves a wide audience. It's a fascinating case history of an American writer's career.
