Inhalt
As a writer, Glenway Wescott produced several novels, noted for their remarkable lyricism. As a literary figure, Wescott also became a symbol of his times. Born on a Wisconsin farm in 1901, he associated as a young writer with Hemingway, Stein, and Fitzgerald in 1920s Paris and subsequently was a central figure in New York's artistic and gay communities. Though he couldn't finish a novel after the age of 45, he was just as famous as an arts impresario, as a diarist, and for the company he kept: Auden, Isherwood, Somerset Maugham, E.M. Forster, and scores of other luminaries. The biographer reveals Wescott's private life, his long relationship with Museum of Modern Art curator Monroe Wheeler, his work with sex researcher Alfred Kinsey that led to breakthrough findings on homosexuality, and his friendships with such artists as Cocteau, Platt-Lynes, and Paul Cadmus.
