This unique autobiography begins with McCarthy''s recollections of an indulgent, idyllic childhood tragically altered by the death of her parents in the influenza epidemic of 1918. Tempering the need to fictionalize for the sake of a good story with the need for honesty, she creates interchapters that tell the reader what she has inferred or invented. Photographs.
From the Publisher:
Mary McCarthy records those incidents in her childhood that most affected her religious outlook and early development as an artist.Mary McCarthy records those incidents in her childhood that most affected her religious outlook and early development as an artist
Annotation:
This book chronicles McCarthy's bleak childhood in the care of overly strict and religious relatives after her parents died in the 1918 flu epidemic.
Author Bio
Mary McCarthy
Born in Seattle, Mary McCarthy was orphaned at the age of six, when her parents died in the 1918 flu epidemic. She and her brother, Kevin, lived with relatives until their college years, as she described in her unhappy autobiography, MEMORIES OF A CATHOLIC GIRLHOOD. McCarthy attended Vassar, and after she graduated she moved to New York, where she wrote book reviews for The Nation and The New Republic, and drama criticism for The Partisan Review. She married her second husband, Edmund Wilson, in 1938; he encouraged McCarthy to write fiction. She is best known for her best-selling novel THE GROUP, which portrays a group of Vassar graduates in the 1930s.
