The Diaries of Dawn PowellBook - 1995
Dawn Powell had a brilliant mind and a keen wit and her humor was never at a finer pitch than in her diaries. And yet her story is a poignant one a son emotionally and mentally impaired, a household of too much alcohol and never enough money, and an artistic career that, if not a failure, fell far short of the success she craved. All is recorded here along with working sketches for her novels, and often revealing portraits of her many friends (a literary whos who of her period) in her always unique style and without self-delusion.
