Description

Biography. "A gripping book...Like Tosca, Charles Henri Ford has lived for art and for love. In his scintillating diary, Ford presents his extended visits to war-torn France and Italy and his friendships with Cocteau, Balanchine, Dali, Paul Bowles, Djuna Barnes, Gertrude Stein, Ned Rarem, Jean Genet, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams and many other luminaries" - Edmund White."When he began publishing in 1929, Ford was unique: ...In his...magazines, Blues and View, he introduced and encouraged surrealism while it passed into the spirit of hundreds of American writers. In his own work he creates the wonder, the wit, and the erotic beauty that have made surrealism the most significant of all modern influences upon poetry" - Edward B. Germain.show more
