Description

A collection of essays about Howard O'Hagan's best-known novel, as well as providing a chronology of his life, an annotated bibliography of his works, an interview with Keith Maillard, and two short memoirs, one by Lovat Dickson, the other by E.W. Strong. Essays by Margery Fee, Ronald Granofsky, W.J. Keith, and Ralph Maud deal with the novel's anthropological sources, its publishing history, its canonization, its treatment of women in the context of its major symbolic patterns, and its connections with O'Hagan's other works. This collection also includes short pieces by O'Hagan himself, some previously unpublished: his first published story, some autobiographical sketches, and his odd, witty chronicles of several meetings of the Berkeley Arts Club.
