Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this brace of literary autobiographies (the individual titles were released in 1921 and 1917, respectively), the Pulitzer Prize-winning Garland unfurled his life growing up in Wisconsin farm country and blazing a trail to the Northeast to study in Boston, where he crossed paths with many of the top writers of the day. Daughterresumes the story of his further adventures in the arts. Paris wasn't the only 1920s literary hot spot. Both New York and Boston had thriving artistic communities into which Garland drifted, meeting young artist Zulime Taft, whom he married. A wonderful piece of Americana.
