Memoirs of Hecate County

Available in:
  • eBook
  • Paperback
  • Hardcover


Controversial upon publication in 1946, Memoirs of Hecate County remained banned for more than a decade before being reissued.

A favorite among his own books, Edmund Wilson's erotic and devestating portrait of the upper middle class still holds up today as a corrosive indictment of the adultery and intellectual posturing that lie at the heart of suburban America.
