The patron saint of independent booksellers everywhere and the spunky proprietress of Shakespeare and Company, the famed Left Bank bookshop, Beach was a one-woman clearinghouse for literary modernism, 'a culture hero of the avant-garde,' as Keri Walsh writes in her fine introduction to this collection... Beach was an animated correspondent. -- Matthew Price Bookforum Reveal[s] the difficulties faced head on by this patron saint of independent booksellers who altered the course of expression in print. Publishers Weekly 2/8/10 Academics and students interested in literary culture, especially of writers of the Lost Generation, will find this book valuable. Library Journal 2/15/10 This lovely book, scholarly and well annotated, is a pleasure to hold. It documents what Beach once called 'my missionary endeavor' and also what she called, correctly, her 'interesting life.' -- Dwight Garner New York Times 4/18/10 The consummate portrait of an incredible woman. -- Robert J. Wiersema The Vancouver Sun 6/20/10 Keri Walsh has produced a commendable work. -- Diane Leach Pop Matters 6/2/10 With The Letters of Sylvia Beach... we now have an unvarnished view of life from the bookshop floor.
