Willa Cather
A Memoir

By Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant

“Although Miss Sergeant was both a life member of Miss Cather’s carefully chosen circle of admirers and for many years…among her most intimate friends, she seems to have emerged from the experience in full possession of her faculties…Her book is an illuminating glimpse of a lively, likable, and immensely gifted young writer whom time and a thousand tributes turned into a formidable, self-absorbed, and somewhat baffled woman.”

The New Yorker

Willa Cather: A Memoir duplicates no other work…Its real value lies in its fresh record of a close friendship which began in 1910…and continued until the death in 1947 of the world-famous novelist and high priestess of art.”

Edward Wagenknecht, The Saturday Review
