Product description

Review

"A significant--and overdue--contribution to Porter studies. Since Porter has such a relatively small body of published work, this largely neglected and inaccessible material will be welcome and nourishing manna upon which Porter scholars will feast."--"Southern Quarterly"

"Shortly before her last illness, Porter had envisioned a book collecting more of her reviews. Now Unrue has achieved that for her. This book is a welcome edition to Porter scholarship."--"Studies in Short Fiction"

"From more than seventy-five book reviews Unrue has selected those that are most meaningful in a consideration of Katherine Anne Porter's art. Preserving Porter's intent and, largely, her grammar and spelling, Unrue has made accessible an important and neglected portion of Porter canon."--"Choice"

"Unrue's collection brings together for the first time reviews that largely have been inaccessible to Porter scholars. . . . The book is a great edition to Porter studies; its introduction valuably details many aspects of her art, while the book itself gives readers access to reviews previously buried on microfilm or in archives."--"Western American Literature"

"The subject matter covers a wide range of topics, including travel, fiction, Mexican history and politics, feminism, and related issues. The reviews, interesting in themselves, provide additional insights into Porter's own life and works. Editor Unrue provides a nice introduction, which places the reviews and surrounding events in Porter's life in the proper context."--"Library Journal"
