One conversation took place in the Harvard Club's Card Room, a cubbyhole in the New York club's upstairs warrens. Thomas H. Guinzburg, who was Cowley's former publisher and employer at the Viking Press, wrote the following upon reading this interview: . fellow readers will gain the strong impression Cowley is determined to resist the constant invasions of his time. Malcolm has always given ample time to any of us who were perceptive enough to seek it, frequently delaying his own more valuable projects in the process.

Readable as that book is, Cowley will likely go down most memorably as the rescuer of William Faulkner.

In 1934 he published his leading study of the Lost Generation, Exile's Return, which the critics-especially Bernard De Voto-sank, saying that Hemingway, Fitzgerald & Co. were ""frivolous and corrupt"" and not worth attention. Reprinted 20 years later, it became a classic. Readable as that book is, Cowley will likely go down most memorably as the rescuer of William Faulkner.

This collection of twenty-one unabridged interviews puts us immediately in the company of one of the presiding literary figures of our times. This revered editor, poet, literary historian, and critic encapsulates seven decades of American literature in these conversations that took place between 1942 and 1985.

Full of insights and strong opinions, direct, salty, Cowley converses candidly with his interviewers about himself and about many subjects and personages that have shaped our national literature in the last century.

Throughout this volume Cowley gives vivid accounts of his close alliances with such widely diverse and individual authors as William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, Hart Crane, John Cheever, Jack Kerouac, and Ken Kesey.

From these interviews emerges a literary man who inspires the reader's renewed admiration and gratitude. In the common bond uniting great authors Cowley sees the manifestation of a Republic of Letters with laws, intelligence, and confraternity. These magnificently articulate interviews leave little doubt that Cowley is its elder statesman.
