Sketchbook A good bio - as far as it could 'go' when written, 1968. New one in the works.


message 2: by Jesse (new) - added it

Jesse Oh, that's good to know! But this might have to make do for now.. I'm more immediately interested in his journals, however.


Sketchbook I quite enjoy the bio. The "Letters" bk has a glossary of who's who, which really helps. Once immersed in that book one can then move more easily into his daily journals...tons of names but no glossary. I find this all intoxicating: 'another world.' In the 20s CVV wrote 7 novels and had a nonstop social life. "Got home 4 a.m."
