Some brief overview of book

One of The Sunday Times' (U. K.) Books of the Year "Garnett's life will not need to be written again." Andrew Morton, Times Literary Supplement A penetrating biography of the most important English-language editor of the early twentieth century During the course of a career spanning half a century, Edward Garnetteditor, critic, and reader for hirewould become one of the most influential men in twentieth-century English literature. Known for his incisive criticism and unwavering conviction in matters of taste, Garnett was responsible for identifying and nurturing the talents of a generation of the greatest writers in the English language, from Joseph Conrad to John Galsworthy, Henry Green to Edward Thomas, T.

E. Lawrence to D. H.

Lawrence. In An Uncommon Reader, Helen Smith brings to life Garnetts intimate and at times stormy relationships with those writers. ("I have always suffered a little from a sense of injustice at your hands," Galsworthy complained in a letter.) All turned to Garnett for advice and guidance at critical moments in their careers, and their letters and diariesin which Garnett often features as a feared but deeply admired protagonisttell us not only about their creative processes, but also about their hopes and fears.

Beyond his connections to some of the greatest minds in literary history, we also come to know Edward as the husband of Constance Garnettthe prolific translator responsible for introducingTolstoy, Dostoevsky, and Chekhov to an English language readershipand as the father of David "Bunny" Garnett, who would make a name for himself as a writer and publisher. "Mr. Edward Garnett occupies a unique position in the literary history of our age," E.

M. Forster wrote. "He has done more than any living writer to discover and encourage the genius of other writers, and he has done it without any desire for personal prestige." An absorbing and masterfully researched portrait of a man who was a defining influence on the modern literary landscape, An Uncommon Reader asks us to consider the multifaceted meaning of literary genius.
