Call It Experience: The Years of Learning How to Write (BROWN THRASHER BOOKS)

De (autor) Erik Bledsoe
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – August 1996

This memoir presents an engaging self-portrait of Erskine Caldwell's first thirty years as a writer, with special emphasis on his long and hard apprenticeship before he emerged as one of the most widely read and controversial authors of his time. While conveying the enormous amount of drive and dedication with which he pursued the writer's life, Caldwell tells of his struggles to find his own voice, his travels, and his various jobs, which ranged from back-breaking common labor to much sought-after positions in radio, film, and journalism.

Such literary personages as Nathanael West, Maxwell Perkins, and Margaret Mitchell appear in "Call It Experience," as does Margaret Bourke-White, with whom he collaborated on a number of projects and whom he also married. Including a self-interview, "Call It Experience" offers a wealth of insights into Caldwell's imagination, his sources of inspiration, and his writing habits, as well as his views on critics and reviewers, publishers, and booksellers. It is a source of both information and inspiration to aspiring writers.

In this candid view of the hardships and rewards of the writer's life, Erskine Caldwell recalls his first thirty years as a writer, with special emphasis on his long and hard apprenticeship before he emerged as one of the most widely read and controversial authors of his time. All the while conveying the enormous amount of drive and dedication with which he pursued his calling, Caldwell tells of his struggles to find his own voice, his travels, and his various jobs, which ranged from backbreaking manual labor to much sought-after positions in radio, film, and journalism. Including a self-interview, Call It Experience offers a wealth of insights into Caldwell's imagination and his writing habits, as well as his views on critics and reviewers, publishers, and booksellers. It is a source of information and inspiration to aspiring writers.
