Read full description of the books:



Glenway Wescott es uno de esos escritores de obra escasa que fueron muy conocidos en su época y que el paso del tiempo silenció para ser restituidos años más tarde en el lugar que merecen dentro de la historia de la literatura. La acción del libro transcurre en un sola tarde de verano a finales de la década de 1920 en una casa de campo francesa, cuya propietaria, Alexandra Henry, una joven heredera norteamericana, hospeda a un compatriota llamado Alwyn Tower, el narrador del libro. Toda la acción transcurre en un sutilísimo plano psicológico que ha llevado a algunos críticos a comparar esta novela con obras maestras como El buen soldado de Ford Madox Ford, Los papeles de Aspern de Henry James o El gran Gatsby de Scott Fitzgerald. En efecto, la lectura de esta obra descubrirá a uno de los talentos olvidados del siglo XX, al que le ha llegado su hora española.

Read information about the author

Ebook El halcón peregrino read Online! Glenway Wescott grew up in Wisconsin and briefly attended the University of Chicago where he met in 1919 his longtime partner Monroe Wheeler.

In 1925 he and Wheeler moved to France, where they mingled with Gertrude Stein and other American expatriates, notably Ernest Hemingway, who created an unflattering portrait of Wescott in the character of Robert Prentiss in The Sun Also Rises.

Eventually, Wescott and Wheeler returned to America and lived in New York City, and later on a large farm in Rosemont, New Jersey owned by his brother, the philanthropist Lloyd Wescott, along with other family members.

Wescott's early fiction, the novels The Apple of the Eye (1924) and the Harper Prize winning The Grandmothers (1927) and the story collection Goodbye, Wisconsin (1928) were set in his native Midwest.

Later work included essays on political, literary, and spiritual subjects, as well as the novels The Pilgrim Hawk (1940), which shared a narrator in Alwyn Towers with The Grandmothers, and Apartment in Athens (1945). Wescott's journals, recording his many literary and artistic friendships, offering an intimate view of his life as a gay man, were published posthumously under the title Continual Lessons.
