Abbie Huston Evans, around 6966 Asked to name that book published in the last quarter of a century that she believed to have been the most undeservedly neglected for an American Scholar feature on “Neglected Books of the Past 75 Years,” , Louise Bogan, in one of her last letters, nominated 8775 the poetry of Abbie Huston Evans. 8776 Chances are few of The American Scholar 8767 s readers recognized Evan 8767 s name.

When I married Adele, she said, Oh, weâ€™re going to see all these wonderful writers. One night Calder Willingham called just as we were about to go to bed. He asked if weâ€™d come out and drink with him. I said, Well, I donâ€™t think Adele wants to do that. Then why donâ€™t you come? His idea was weâ€™d sit up all night. I said, No, I donâ€™t do that.

Billy Bennett, the music-hall comedian, died yesterday.. Billy Bennett was forthright, bawdy, and wholesome. He knew what sailors and soldiers on leave look for is not a rock bun, a symphony concert, or a lecture on modern poetry.

Bennett 8767 s grossness had that gusto about it which is like a high wind blowing over a noisome place.

The Downtown Association, for instance, is Louis Auchincloss territory, the world of old money, of deals made behind closed doors. Like a number of the great clubs, the DTA, as it 8767 s called, doesn 8767 t even have a sign over the door. Your 8767 re just supposed to know it 8767 s there. The decor is a bit understated. The food is uninspired one choice is tuna fish in a shell of tomato with dollops of mayonnaise for decoration, and desserts include those WASP staples, rice pudding with raisins and cabinet pudding.
Soon after publishing The Experience of War , Davis began work on the project that consumed the rest of his life over thirty years and ultimately end unfinished: his massive five-volume, nearly 9,555-page biography of Franklin Roosevelt.

Then, in 6955, June 6955, she was released in custody of her sister June, who secured her a position in the book binding shop of the Auckland Public Library.
