Resting Among Us: Authors' Gravesites in Upstate New York

9780815611608
Too often, the lives and works of authors who called Upstate New York home are overshadowed by the icons of New York City. Resting among Us uncovers the region's rich literary heritage through Steven Huff's journeys to the graves of writers both famous and celebrated as well as those that have been forgotten. While most Upstate residents are aware that Mark Twain's grave is in Elmira and that James Fenimore Cooper's is in Cooperstown, many people don't realize a noted author may be buried in their local cemetery. For instance, Paul Bowles is buried in Lakemont, John Gardner in Batavia, Rod Serling in Interlaken, John Burroughs in Roxbury, and Adelaide Crapsey in Rochester. Interwoven with these remarkable literary lives are the connected stories of the region's history and Huff's own encounters and friendships with some of the writers included in the book. With directions to each author's grave, as well as photographs of the graves and authors themselves, Resting among Us is the perfect companion for your own enlightening literary pilgrimage.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Steven HuffPublisher: Syracuse University PressPublished: 10/15/2023ISBN: 9780815611608Pages: 338Weight: 1.00lbs
