Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
LJ's reviewer dubbed this portrait of the artist a "readable, gossipy case study" (LJ 11/15/77). It follows Schwartz's life and career from his early writing, which showed great promise, to his death at age 52. A few of his poetry and story collections remain in print, but Schwartz has become an obscure figure of literature, making this more for academic collections.

    Living With A Stranger

    I read the first edition of this book at the recommendation of a friend. I had asked him about a time frame of a book I am working on about my days in the White Horse and the West Village. I had lived in the same loft as Delmore and Victoria for about four months. In the book it was described as rather slumish place in the meat packing district. I had watched Delmore's pill taking ritual with the fascination of a 19 year old Southerner new to New York. The loft was not a slum, it belonged to the day bartender at the White Horse, Eddie Anderson. Delmore, who I thought looked like a gargoyle, had given me all his books. I loved Successful Love and Other Stories the best. This book was a shock! I knew little of his life before 1960, just what he had told me. After his death his life's work disappeared. There are three major universities where I live and not one of his books are to be found. I asked a few lit. profs. I know and I was looked at as if I were speaking of an alien. I am the age now, that Delmore was then. One of the pre-beat poets. I always respected him and I liked him. I did not know him at the end, but I wish knew his past as James Atlas writes of it, when I was in his present. I would have asked more questions, if possible. I loved to hear his stories.
