Editorial Reviews


"I make no distinction between fact, fiction, history, reminiscence and fantasy, for the imagination inhabits them all."—James Dickey, in a letter to Gore Vidal

"What Van Ness has done in gathering Dickey's letters for publication and his brilliant, insightful commentary clarify who James Dickey is in literature and letters. . . . The One Voice of James Dickey is more than simply a collection of Dickey's letters. The commentaries provide an important guide to understanding Dickey and his biography against the background of contemporary writers and writing."—Sue Walker
