"A remarkably honest book."
—Christian Science Monitor
"Excellent. . . . A fine mosaic of a man who suceeded in life despite his 'self destruct' instinct."
Included are recollections and commentary from Agee's widow, his lifelong friend and teacher Father Flye, his editor David McDowell, and other notables, including John Huston, Andrew Lytle, and Walker Evans, with whom Agee collaborated on Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. For this edition, the editors have added new insights from such luminaries as Robert Fitzgerald, Dwight Macdonald, and Frederick Manfred, along with Agee critics Scott Bates, Edward Carlos, James Lee, Edwin M. Sterling, and William Stott. In addition, editor Jeffrey J. Folks has contributed a new preface outlining the state of Agee criticism in the years since the first edition was published in 1974.
With liveliness and candor, Remembering James Agee evokes the life and personality of a writer and critic who holds a unique place in American letters.
