Biography of Max Eastman Completed
February 20, 2016
I am pleased to report that work on my new biography of Max Eastman--tentative title Max Eastman's Century is now complete. It will be published by Yale University Press in 2017. About the photograph: I was privileged to be able to visit Yvette Eastman shortly before her death two years ago at the age of 101. My hope is that I have been able to do justice to her husband's multifaceted career and personality as well as to her own efforts to keep his name and legacy alive. I am holding Yvette's book about her relationship with another great writer, Theodore Dreiser, which she had just signed for me.
