The midwestern ascendancy in American writing by Ronald Weber( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a half-century - from Edward Eggleston's pioneering novel The Hoosier Schoolmaster in 1871 through the dazzling early work of Hart Crane, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway in the 1920s - Midwestern literature was at the center of American writing. In The Midwestern Ascendancy in American Writing, Ronald Weber illuminates the sense of lost promise that gives rise to the elegiac note struck in many Midwestern works; he also addresses the deeply divided feelings about the region revealed in the contrary desires to abandon and to celebrate. The period of Midwestern cultural ascendancy was a time of tremendous social and technological change. Midwestern writing was a reflection of these societal changes; it was American literature

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"News of Paris recaptures the colorful, often zany world of Paris-American journalists during the glory days of the expatriate period. It does so by concentrating on the lives of such figures as Ernest Hemingway, James Thurber, Henry Miller, Elliot Paul, William L. Shirer, Dorothy Thompson, Janet Flanner, and Eric Sevareid, and on the life of the major newspapers, including the Paris Herald (the New York Herald Tribuen's European edition) and the Tribune, the lively and innovative offspring of the Chicago Tribune. Others populating the pages of News of Paris include Harold Stearns, Paul Scott Mowrer, Bill Bird, Vincent Sheean, Waverley Root, Eugene Jolas, Martha Foley, Whit Burnett, Ned Calmer, and A.J. Liebling."--Jacket

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hired Pens tells the story of the class of full-time independent professional writers who emerged in America in the 1830s and '40s and flourished during the great age of print that began after the Civil War and continued into the 1960s. While most accounts of the writing life focus on high-culture artists, Hired Pens treats authors who pursued the shifting popular tastes of Grub Street. Likewise it treats a literary marketplace that includes not only novels and poetry but gift annuals, story papers, general-circulation magazines, dime novels, pulp and slick magazines, newspaper syndicates, and paperback originals
