Lanterns on the levee : recollections of a planter's son by William Alexander Percy( Book )

3 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born and raised in Greenville, Mississippi, within the shelter of old traditions, aristocratic in the best sense, William Alexander Percy in his lifetime (1885'1942) was brought face to face with the convulsions of a changing world. Lanterns on the Levee is his memorial to the South of his youth and young manhood. In describing life in the Mississippi Delta, Percy bridges the interval between the semifeudal South of the 1800s and the anxious South of the early 1940s. The rare qualities of this classic memoir lie not in what Will Percy did in his life'although his life was exciting and varied'but rather in the intimate, honest, and soul-probing record of how he brought himself to contemplate unflinchingly a new and unstable era. The 1973 introduction by Walker Percy'Will's nephew and adopted son'recalls the strong character and easy grace of "the most extraordinary man I have ever known."

Life with father by Clarence Day( Book )

1 edition published in 1935 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A humorous autobiographical book set in 1890's New York. Clarence Day Jr.'s comic tales of his father, Clarence 'Clare' Day Senior, portray a rambunctious, short-fused Wall Street broker who demands that everything from his family (and other menials) should be just so. When it isn't, all hell breaks loose. Clare is intolerant and tyrannical in his constant battle to harness the world to his way of thinking. The more he rails against his staff, his cook, his wife, his horse, salesmen, holidays, his children and the inability of the world to live up to his impossible standards, the more comical and lovable he becomes to his own family who love him despite it all. -- from the publisher
