Beginning of the Journey : The Marriage of Diana and Lionel Trilling
The Beginning of the Journey is the account of the coming-of-age of an extraordinary literary couple: Lionel Trilling, the renowned critic, and Diana Trilling, who rose to prominence as a reviewer for the Nation in the forties and soon joined her husband among a brilliant group of writers around Partisan Review. Mrs. Trilling discloses the private drama of the early years of their marriage: her prolonged illness, the financial hardship, the professional sterility. She also tells the fascinating story of their public life at the center of New York intellectual circles that included Mary McCarthy, Philip Rahv, Edmund Wilson, Hannah Arendt, and a host of other luminaries.
