Blackness of a White Night by Sherry Mangan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From Harvard-educated aesthete and promising young man of letters to experimenter in 'rebel verse', revolutionary socialist, and successful Time Inc. journalist, Sherry Mangan defies, as recent scholarship has shown, all the stereotypes of 1930s literati, especially with regard to the deep level of his political commitment. Despite the turmoil and physical pain at the end of his life in the 1950s, Mangan carried out attempts during this final period to work exclusively on his own writing -- something that he had been unable to do since the late 1930s owing to his numerous political and journalistic responsibilities. For individuals interested in the literature and politics of the United States in the first half of the 20th century, this book will be of special interest. For all readers, it will serve as a good introduction to a heretofore forgotten writer.
