[EAN: 9781584657132], Neubuch, [PU: University Press of New England, Hanover], COMPARATIVE LITERATURE, EDMUND WILSON, MEMOIRS, MASSACHUSETTS, CAPE COD, REUEL K. WELLFLEET, NEW ENGLAND, MARY MCCARTHY, Literary Criticism|American|General, Biography & Autobiography|General, Biography & Autobiography|Literary, Jacket, 192 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. MEMOIRS. "This is the understated New England version of the Hollywood childhood memoir, with a beautiful twist. Reuel K. Wilson is the son of writers Mary McCarthy and Edmund Wilson, both almost as famous for their scandalously bohemian lifestyle as for their work. While the marriage lasted only seven years (from 1938, the year Reuel was born, to 1945), Reuel's parents left him with an abiding love for Wellfleet, a small community just 14 miles south of Provincetown on Cape Cod, where the couple lived for several years. Reuel shared his father's distaste for the "richification" of the Cape -- Edmund first began visiting there in the 1920s, when it was truly a haven for artists and writers -- but he clearly loves the houses and the landscape that remain the most stable part of what seems a pretty unstable upbringing. It's quite a cast of characters - Eugene O'Neill (whose house slid quietly into the ocean), John Dos Passos (who called the Cape "New England's Riviera"), E.E. Cummings and many others. The chapters "Edmund Wilson's Cape Cod Poetry" ("Where daylight whitens to the west," Wilson wrote in a poem called "Provincetown") and "Remembering My Parents and Cape Cod" are by far the warmest and most memorable in this delightful memoir." ÑLos Angeles Times The Cape as evoked and experienced by a legendary literary couple. Edmund Wilson (1895-1972) and Mary McCarthy (1912-1989), famed authors, literary critics, libertines, and leftists, were married for seven years and had one child together, Reuel K. Wilson. While bringing forward new biographical revelations, as well as texts that have never been published before, Reuel K. Wilson chronicles his parents' lives on Cape Cod, together and apart, while examining their relationships with the landscape around them, both human and physical. The book combines biography, cultural history, and literary analysis in an effort to, as the author writes, "impart a sense of the two protagonists' flesh, blood, nerves, and determination to make an artistic synthesis from observation and experience. If they recreate the place, my role has been to recreate them in it." "Although he is the prismatic lens through which we see Wilson and McCarthy, Mr. Reuel has kept the focus squarely on his parents. He is not shy about giving his point of view, but he is genuinely concerned with broadening and deepening our understanding of these fascinating and complex people. Clearly, they were not the easiest of parents to be around, but this book is truly a whining-free zone, about as far as you can get from a Mommie Dearest sort of memoir . . . References to autobiographical and biographical sources are exhaustively referenced and even footnoted, all very useful as a guide to those readers who will doubtless be stimulated by this book to read more about Wilson and McCarthy. Mr. Reuel is not shy about correcting or adding to the record where necessary: After all he has a unique vantage point and authority to do so. But he consistently does so with a quiet grace all his own, a quality which would have greatly benefited his choleric father and contrary mother and those around them . . . Clearly this was one child who was far better off with divorced parents than if their battlefield of a marriage had continued throughout his childhood. Perhaps this is the root of his mellow view of them and Cape Cod, the scene of so much of his life with Mom and Dad." ÑWashington Times "Reuel Wilson retraces the eye-opening natures walks he took with his father, side by side, when he was entering adolescence. Gull Pond in Wellfleet, "almost a perfect circle," allowed ample time for a memorable lecture of the Lady's Slipper, Edmund Wilson's favorite wildflower, and how its slipper-like pouch seems to connect with his father's fascination with women's feet. The author's boyhood innocence is saturated with mature wisdom. His book offers us a rare and intimate glimpse into t
