Books Info:

Midstream free pdf In her foreword, Anne Tyler calls Reynolds Price an exclamation point in a landscape of mostly declarative sentences. When Price died in 2011, he left behind a final manuscript two hundred candid, heartrending, and marvelously written pages about a critical period in his young adulthood. Approaching thirty, Price writes, is to face the notion that This is it. I m now the person I m likely to be. "Midstream "details the final youthful adventures of a man on the cusp of artistic acclaim. Here, Price chases a doomed love to England, only to meet heartbreak. Determined to pursue other pleasures, Price journeys to Rome with poet Stephen Spender, sharing an afternoon with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Price finds company in New York with a group of artists as he awaits the publication of his first novel, and, back in North Carolina, he begins his illustrious career at Duke, which would span a half century. "Midstream "is a fitting bookend for Price s remarkable career, and it reinforces his place in the pantheon of American literature."
