Description
"How he could now be forgotten seems unfathomable. Lewis Galantière guided Hemingway through his first years in Paris, when the author was unknown and desperate for recognition. He helped James Joyce and Sylvia Beach launch Ulysses; started John Houseman in his theatrical career; and collaborated with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in the writing of Wind, Sand and Stars and Flight to Arras. He was a playwright, a literary and cultural critic and an author, Federal Reserve Bank economist throughout the Great Depression, director of the French Branch of the Office of War Information at the onset of World War II, ACLU Director during the McCarthyism-fraught 1950s, Counselor to Radio Free Europe and, at a crucial time in its history, president of PEN America, the writers advocacy organization. Yet, today, few know his name and, to those who do, he is a cipher... And that was precisely his intent. Galantière, The Lost Generation's Forgotten Man, is both an historical chronicle providing rare insights into the lives of leading twentieth century figures, and a meticulously researched biography. Galantière presents, for the first time, the seemingly magical story of the self-fabricated and fully-realized man, Lewis Galantière."--,Provided by publisher.
