Description

This book is written in 1922. From the Prologue: the world is full of stories and many of the stories are true. But they are not true enough. An artistic pattern comes between the teller of the tale and his reality, or a vague fear of stupid and malicious comment or - especially in America - a desire to avoid singularity. Yet, somehow, we must master life or it will end by destroying us. We can master it only by understanding it and we can understand it only by telling each other the quite naked and, if need be, the devastating truth. Its contents include: A Far Childhood; The American Scene; The Making of an American; The Making of an Anglo-American; The American Discovers Exile; The American Finds Refuge; The Business of Education; The Color of Life; Myth and Blood; and The World in Chaos.
