"Dear Yeats," "Dear Pound," "Dear Ford"
Jeanne Robert Foster and Her Circle of Friends

Richard Londraville and Janis Londraville
With a Foreword by William M. Murphy

Cloth $19.95    |   0-8156-0730-X    |   2001

The life of a remarkable Adirondack woman (model, journalist, and poet) provides readers with a unique insider’s view into art and literature during the birth of the Age of Modernism.

"Jeanne Robert Foster has long been a mysterious and magical presence in the twentieth-century world of art and letters in Europe and the United States. Until now we have had to be content with tantalising glimpses of her in the lives of the Irish portrait painter John Butler Yeats, the Welsh artist Gwen John, the English diabolist Aleister Crowley, the great American patron John Quinn, and many novelists and poets from Ford Madox Ford to Ezra Pound."
Michael Holroyd, author Basil Street Blues: A Memoir

"Through the wide-open eyes of this charming, independent, and intelligent woman, sensitively portrayed . . . we see not only the emergence of twentieth-century America but enter the world of the literary magazines and ateliers of London, New York, and Paris, and get a firsthand account of Czechoslovakia in the making."
Ann Saddlemyer, author of Lady Gregory: Fifty Years After
