Forster and others); Personal and Particular; Biographical; Mexican; On Writing; etc. One of the most enduring of American writers, Katherine Anne Porter has here brought together in one volume all of her essays, occasional writings, a biography in progress of Cotton Mather, and her poetry -- works covering a span of nearly fifty years.
