9780712697552: Maeve Brennan: Wit, Style and Tragedy - An Irish Writer in New York
Críticas:

"'Hugely entertaining and thought-provoking, and upsetting and funny, and tender and wise...A labour of love and a profound study of literary life in 20th-century America.' Roy Foster, Financial Times 'An unusually fine biography...Bourke makes you want to read [Brennan's] books.' Paul Bailey, Sunday Times 'This, finally, is the biography [Brennan] deserves.' Mall on Sunday 'A biography to savour and treasure.' Frances Spalding, Daily Mail 'Sympathetic...compelling reading.' Independent 'This book needed to be written and Angela Bourke was the perfect author...meticulously researched, detailed and beautifully written.' Evening Herald 'This fine biography completes the rehabilitation of Maeve Brennan, who can now take her rightful place among the very best Irish short story writers.' Irish Examiner"

Reseña del editor:

The first book about Maeve Brennan, the recently rediscovered New Yorker writer from Ireland, who wrote like an angel, and looked like a fashion model, but became homeless in Manhattan in the 1970s and died forgotten in 1993. Born in Dublin in 1917 to politically active parents, Maeve Brennan's childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was Irish Minister throughout World War II. Maeve wrote fashion copy at Harper's Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to join The New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devastatingly witty, in William Maxwell's words, 'to be around her was to see style being invented'. Her richly textured fiction criticism and 'Talk of the Town' pieces, published in the 1950s and '60s, during The New Yorker's most influential period, offer unsparing portraits of the Ireland she had left and the America she inhabited. As this richly researched and wide-ranging book makes clear, Maeve Brennan's effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.
