Editorial Reviews

Review

Time Magazine's 10 Top Nonfiction Books of the Year

“By turns effusive, despairing, mischievous, vain, and bighearted,
The Selected Letters unfolds like an epistolary autobiography, teeming with rich period detail and the savvy observations of a complicated artist at the height of her powers.” —O Magazine

"Jewell and Stout have performed a valuable service with this book, from which Cather emerges as a strong and vivid presence, a woman at once surprisingly modern and touchingly--if not always sweetly--old-fashioned. . . . As a pure prose stylist, she ranks with Hemingway; as a self-made American artist and feminist pioneer, she traveled a far greater distance--from tiny Red Cloud to Manhattan--than Fitzgerald did when he made the leap from middle-class St. Paul to Princeton. These letters bring her fuzzy image into much sharper focus, and for that we owe Jewell and Stout a debt of gratitude."--front cover,
New York Times Book Review

“If
Selected Letters tells us something profound about Cather, it is this: She was too active, too interesting and too alive to keep herself a secret forever. It has always been inevitable that, one day, one way or another, this would be proven in Cather’s own words.” —The Daily News

“The editors maintain a fine balance, providing useful illustrative material, but knowing, too, when to fall silent and let Cather speak for herself. And speak she does, in a voice that’s alternately eloquent, determined, respectful, erudite, affectionate and wise—and sometimes cantankerous and cranky. Combined, the letters compose a portrait of an artist, a woman who crafted some of the finest fiction of the twentieth century.” —The Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“This prodigious editorial feat gives readers a glimpse for the first time into the mind of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of O Pioneers! . . .  Throughout, Cather emerges as a humorous, profound, and difficult personality whose cosmopolitan life and commitment to crafting a successful public persona should challenge misconceptions.” —Publishers Weekly, Pick of the Week, starred review
 
“A revealing, even revelatory collection of correspondence from Willa Cather . . . A splendidly edited, generous gift to lovers of Cather and American literature.” —
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel like I got a new hard cover book for $6 instead of cover price of $37.50
By bob yates on August 17, 2021
I am a big Willa Cather fan. I first read this book having borrowed it from my local library. It added so much to my understanding of her life story that I wanted a copy for my own library.
