About This Item

(New Haven: Yale University Press, 2000) 0300079044. 8vo; original biscuit-coloured cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xlvi + (ii) + 497, incl. index; photographs. Dustwrapper ever so slightly rubbed; trace of fishmothing to edges of cloth; binding a little slack; occasional fox spot. Good to very good condition. "The letters include correpondence with West's famous lover H. G. Wells and with [George Bernard] Shaw, Virginia Woolf, Emma Goldman, J. B. Priestley, Noel Coward and many others. They offer pronouncements on such personalities as Norman Mailer, Margaret Thatcher, Kenneth Tynan, Victoria Glendinning, Nadine Gordimer, Lawrence Durrell and William Burroughs; and provide new insights into her battles against misogyny, fascism and communism. Rebecca West deliberately fashions her own biography through this intensely personal correspondence, challenging rival accounts of her groundbreaking professional career, her frustrating love life and her tormented family relations. Engrossing to read, the collection sheds new light on this important figure and her social and literary milieu." .
