This Brave Voyage

Autumn 1983 | Criticism

Joan Givner's biography of Katherine Anne Porter possesses this "passion for life"; it is a full and moving dramatization of an inner portrait of Porter as she fought to establish an artistic integrity for herself against the most unlikely odds. With a keen admiration for her subject, Givner never collapses into adulation, nor does she become crushed by the incredible flow of facts and documentation surrounding the nine decades of Porter's life.
