CROSS -- SECTION by Edwin -- Ed. Seaver


Email this review


With an eye on the vitality of American writing, and the emphasis on writers of this decade, there are few of the overworked names usually associated with such collections -- which makes this interesting for its inclusions of controversial possibilities, in the effort to stimulate fresh interest in modern writing. Short stories, poems, novelettes, plays, many by writers generally thought of in other connections:- Nancy Wilson Ross, Betty Baur, Richard Weight, Brendan Gill, Robert Ramsey, Ira Wolfert, Edita Morris, Carl Ruthven Offord, Lenore G. Marshall, Jane Bowles, Norman Rosten, etc. Social conditions and prejudices, emotions and pressures -- such are the themes; there is noticeable lack of material concerning the war.
