Format: Hardcover
Book-lovers and those fascinated with the lives of American writers and intellectuals will enjoy this beautifully written and thoroughly researched book. Seward Collins was a complex man who moved in the 1920s literary circles of the Algonquin Roundtable wits, F. Scott Fitzgerald, the New Yorker's Harold Ross, and many of their famous contemporaries. He may have been the model for a Hemingway character, and he almost married Dorothy Parker. For several years he was most prominent as the editor of "The Bookman," a periodical for book-lovers and book collectors that had "People" magazine like profiles of celebrity author's lives.

Originally a liberal who supported Sacco and Vanzetti, Collins was drawn to the romanticism of an idealized Fascism, which resulted in his alienation from the left and government investigation during WWII. If you enjoy reading biographies of memoirs of literati on the left, this book will introduce you to a whole other set of people and ideas. I don't agree with or admire them, but I learned a lot that has helped me to understand how intellectuals can embrace right-wing beliefs and how this has led to the current strength of conservatism in the US. Many long-forgotten names and events are not just mentioned but explained and brought to life, opening up a whole new area of American history to me. Tucker's writing is always entertaining, always clear, and well worth reading.
