KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of the newly revised and expanded prefaces to the Storisende edition of Cabell's novels, which was published in 1927 and in 1930. Taken as a unit, they form a running commentary on the author's controversy with the editors and the public (hence the reappearance of the name under which he wrote -- and fought his battle). There is an introduction and there are the individual prefaces -- a milestone in America's literary background. A book that will be of interest primarily to Cabell fans -- and to students of the novel.
