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.

    finally something of value

    This autobiography is truly an enjoyable read, and the quality of the writing is excellent. The only drawback is in the formatting which has produced many typographical errors. But once one gets used to it, it becomes easy to decifer and worth the effort.

    Really enjoying this book as it gives so many insights to life d

    Really enjoying this book as it gives so many insights to life during the 1800's as a child, and young adult trying to find a place in this world.  I was never bored reading this book and highly recommend to anyone who loves history, and especially what life was like for those living during this time period.
