Growing Up with Legends: A Literary Memoir


In this evocative and engaging memoir, Thomas Wright recalls, with eloquence, frankness, and humor, a man coming to terms with his homosexuality and seeking happiness. He tells anecdotes and gives bittersweet character sketches of some of the most influential writers of the mid-20th century, among them Tennessee Williams, Paul Bowles, Christopher Isherwood, Aldous Huxley, W.H. Auden, poet Harold Norse, playwright Speed Lamkin, poet Chester Kallman, and Allen and Caroline Tate. Wright himself has published short stories and two literary travel books.
