Alexander's Bridge: New Ed, With a Pref (Classic Reprint)

Designer: book-specialty-store

Sold Out

It is difficult to comply with the publishers request that I write a preface for this new edition of an early book. Alexander s Bridge was my first novel, and does not deal with the kind of subject-matter in which I now find myself most at home. The people and the places of the story interested me intensely at the time when it was written, because they were new to me and were in themselves attractive. Alexander s Bridge was written in 1911, andO Pioneers! the following year. The difference in quality in the two books is an illustration of the fact that it is not always easy for the inexperienced writer to distinguish between his own material and that which he would like to make his own. Everything is new to the young writer, and everything seems equally personal.
