Here is the first major critical biography of James Agee - poet, film critic, journalist, novelist, essayist, and screenwriter - which puts into clear perspective the life and work of this Pulitzer Prize-winning cult hero. He did this by leading the quintessential intellectual artist's life - overindulging in tobacco, alcohol, and women, and generally pursuing so self-destructive a course that he seemed to wish himself to death. Translated from the French by Miriam Kleiger with the assistance of Morty Schiff. Includes an Index.
