    The Diaries of Dawn Powell 1931-1965. Edited with an Introduction by Tim Page. by Powell, Dawn

    South Royalton :: Steerforth Press,, 1995. 1883642086. A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This volume presents a wondrous evocation of the writing life as seen through Powell's eyes. More than mere diaries, Powell's journals are at times a workbook presenting many fully-formed narratives. There are thoughtful pieces about why she feels compelled to write and gripes about how writers live. And scattered throughout are witty and gossipy essays about living in literary New York and socializing and working with such characters as Edmund Wilson, John Dos Passos, her editor Max Perkins, and the woman to whom she was often unfairly compared, Dorothy Parker. "The Diaries" is a self-portrait of a hard working novelist who was a keen observer with an acerbic tongue who had close associations with many writers of her period including Malcolm Cowley, Ernest Hemingway, and Edmund Wilson..
