Book Description

A National Book Award nominee: Hortense Calisher’s autobiography captures the making of a distinct literary voice

Although Hortense Calisher’s fiction often draws on autobiographical elements, Herself is a disciplined documentation of the award-winning author’s life and work. She surveys the various decades and landscapes she has inhabited, mining her family’s Jewish lineage, discussing her children, exploring her greatest artistic influences, and describing her work process in a brave and bold work of autobiography. Herself is a rich collage of essays, reviews, recollections, and observations that unite the writer and the person.
