Delicious
A Memoir of Glenway Wescott

By: Daniel Diamond
Sykes Press
65 pages
CA$20 + S&H

Delicious is an affectionate recollection of the writer Glenway Wescott, author of the classic American novels The Grandmothers and The Pilgrim Hawk. Poet and painter Daniel Diamond, Wescott’s secretary and assistant, provides an intimate, sometimes humorous look at Wescott in his last years - his daily affairs, his writing and opinions, his friendships, his involvement with literary society, and his relationship with his partner, curator Monroe Wheeler. A vivid, uniquely personal view of an important writer whose work is now enjoying a posthumous renaissance.

“The most beautiful piece ever written on Glenway Wescott.”
- Jerry Rosco, author of Glenway Wescott Personally

“Totally charming!”
- Don McLeod, author of A Brief History of GAY

“Wonderful - a gem of a gift! I picked it up and read it in a single gulp.”
- Thomas Meyer, author of At Dusk Iridescent

“Fascinating!”
- Timothy d’Arch Smith, author of The Books of the Beast

“Very classy, very sweet! Makes me want to write a memoir...oh, that’s
  right, I already did...”
- Gavin Dillard, author of In the Flesh
