Book Description

June 25, 1991 0313268576 978-0313268571 annotated edition

Bruce Kellner worked directly from the collection of often-overlooked novelist Donald Windham to produce this reference work. Entries on books, pamphlets, articles and criticism provided a comprehensive record of WindhaM&Apos;s literary development, critical reception, failures, and achievements. According to Kellner, the public has yet to fully embrace the quiet eloquence of WindhaM&Apos;s work; like authors Herman Melville and Gertrude Stein, he may be vindicated by time.

Kellner introduces the bio-bibliography with a discussion of Donald WindhaM&Apos;s background, writing style, and reception by publishers and readers. He likens WindhaM&Apos;s subtle style to E.M. Forster, and he suggests that America's action-oriented culture lacks patience for WindhaM&Apos;s offerings, which are homosexual but not erotic, Southern but not gothic. The book, which includes an addendum to the introduction by Windham himself, is divided into five parts: Books and Pamphlets, Books and Pamphlets with Contributions, Contributions to Periodicals, Ephemera, and Criticism and Biography. This book is valuable to students, scholars, and general audiences of literature.

Editorial Reviews


?Donald Windham has had a steady, if quiet literary career which spans five decades. A long time intimate of Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote (he even coauthored one play with Williams), he has never attained the name-recognition achieved by his more flamboyant fellow Southerners. Kellner, an admirer of Windham's work, has compiled painstaking descriptions of Windham's novels, plays, short stories, journal articles, published letters, and ephemera.... There is a section that contains an annotated list of critical reactions to Windham's work in journals and newspapers: quotes from the reviews are mixed with Kellner's editorial comments. This slim volume begins with a short introductory essay on Windham's life and career. Windham himself provides an amiable commentary to the compiler's introduction. The few photographs include a manuscript page with Tennessee Williams's written suggestions. A short, serviceable index concludes the book. Kellner's biobibliography will be most useful for collectors of Windham's writings.?-Choice
