Edited with a memoir by Robert Fitzgerald. Agee achieved fame only after his tragically early death of a heart attack in a New York taxi at the age of 45. Two years later, in 1955, his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Death in the Family, appeared and readers began to discover his earlier works. This book contains James Agee’s previously uncollected prose – pieces ranging from Harvard days to his last years. In addition to short storis, there are notes for motion pictures, scenarios, and plans for projected works which reveal the dizzying way in which fresh ideas competed for his energies. Along with the introductory portrait of Agee in the memoir by Fitzgerald. Stated first printing. Dust jacket unclipped. With inscription at half-title apparently by Robert Fitzgerald, dated March 6, 1969.
