Memoirs of Hecate County by Edmund Wilson( Book )

130 editions published between 4 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 2,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hecate is the Greek goddess of sorcery, and Edmund Wilson's Hecate County is the bewitched center of the American Dream, a sleepy bedroom community where drinks flow endlessly and sexual fantasies fill the air. Memoirs of Hecate County, Wilson's favorite among his many books, is a set of interlinked stories combining the supernatural and the satirical, astute social observation and unusual personal detail. But the heart of the book, "The Princess with the Golden Hair," is a starkly realistic novella about New York City, its dance halls and speakeasies and slums. So sexually frank that for years Wilson's book was suppressed, this story is one of the great lost works of twentieth-century American literature: an astringent, comic, ultimately devastating exploration of lust and love, how they do and do not overlap

Most of the essays deal with the relation between creative activity and psychological injury and maladjustment.

The last tycoon : an unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

58 editions published between 1941 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a novel about a Hollywood producer who finds himself not only struggling to find love and success in a world of cut-throats, but who is in the ultimate struggle for his own life. The Last Tycoon is Fitzgerald's final work, a novel he was working on at the time of his death. The novel was published after editing by fellow writer and friend, Edmund Wilson, with the aid of Fitzgerald's notes and outlines. The novel was intended to be as compact and tightly constructed as The Great Gatsby, with a subject matter deeper and more complex than Gatsby. Fitzgerald was well on the way of accomplishing this goal. The Last Tycoon remains a testament to Fitzgerald's literary genius
