Biographical/Historical Note

Harry previous hitCrews next hit was born in 1935, in Bacon County, Georgia. He has been a carnival barker, light-heavyweight boxer and a bartender. He left Georgia at the age of 18 to pull a hitch in the Marine Corps during the Korean Conflict. With the GI Bill he went to the University of Florida and upon graduation started to write, the only thing he’d ever wanted to do, and never looked back.

previous hitCrews next hit has been described as “a dark chronicler of human vanity and folly,” an artist in depicting “the world of the misbegotten, the freaks and misfits and malcontents in whose strange doings previous hitCrews next hit is able to locate a genuine if quirky humanity” (Washington Post Book World). “Harry previous hitCrews next hit has a talent all his own,” remarked American novelist Norman Mailer of previous hitCrews next hit’s 1976 novel A Feast of Snakes. “He begins where James Dickey left off.”

He has 21 titles: novels, collections of essays, a memoir and a play entitled Blood Issue, commissioned by and first produced at the Actors Theatre of Louisville and published by the University of Kentucky in a volume entitled Southern Playwrights. His most recent books are Body, Scar Lover, and The Knockout Artist. Two one hour documentaries have been made of this life and work, one by PBS entitled Rough South, and one by an independent producer, Film Noir, entitled Guilty As Charged.

previous hitCrews next hit’ 1978 memoir A Childhood: The Biography of a Place tells of his growing up in rural southern Georgia and of coming to terms with that culture as an adult. “It’s easy to despise poor folks,” said one reviewer of A Childhood in The New York Times Book Review. “A Childhood makes it more difficult. It raises almost to a level of heroism these people who seem of a different century…. A Childhood is not about a forgotten America, it is about a part of America that has rarely, except in books like this, been properly discovered.”

He has been a columnist for Esquire magazine, and was a contributing editor for Fame magazine of New York City, and contributing editor for Southern magazine of Little Rock, Arkansas.

He has had an NEA grant, an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and also won the award from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines of America for the best piece of nonfiction published in any literary magazine in 1977. That essay, “One Bright February Morning,” appeared in Shenandoah. He was on the staff of Breadloaf Writers Conference for six consecutive years, and has long since lost count of the number of universities and colleges at which he has lectured and read. previous hitCrews next hit currently lives and works in Florida and will continue to write until the final curtain comes down. His work has been published in France, Italy, Holland, Israel, and England.


Scope and Content Note

The literary papers of American writer Harry previous hitCrews next hit (1953-2006) document his writing career up through the publication of his twentieth book, An American Family: The Child With the Curious Marking (2006). Typed and holograph manuscripts, correspondence, clippings, conference material, awards, literary and film contracts, financial statements, and photographs make up the bulk of materials, which generally date from the mid-1960s onward.

The Correspondence series (1962-2005) begins with correspondence between previous hitCrews next hit and his mentor Andrew Lytle (who first published previous hitCrews next hit in The Sewanee Review), letters from college friends/apprentice writers with whom previous hitCrews next hit struggled to generate novels for publication, and rejection slips and correspondences from prospective literary agents and publishers.

Letters in the middle and late 1960s document the period when previous hitCrews next hit published his first two novels -- The Gospel Singer, Naked in Garden Hills - and include correspondence with his first literary agent, Bert Cochran, of American Authors, Inc., with John Hawkins of Paul Reynolds, Inc., who succeeded Cochran, and with previous hitCrews next hit' editor at William Morrow, Jim Landis.

The letters between previous hitCrews next hit and Landis, who would edit previous hitCrews next hit' first five novels between 1967 and 1972, are particularly rich in material on the writer's composition process and concerning his ideas about characterization and theme. At this time, also, correspondence appears from other American writers - John Ciardi, Seymour Epstein, Maxine Kumin, William Meredith, Henry Van Dyke and others -- with whom previous hitCrews next hit became acquainted through the Bread Loaf Writers Conference and the University of Florida Writers Conference, the latter which he co-directed between 1970-1974 with fellow UF writer and professor Smith Kirkpatrick. (Other writers represented in the Correspondence include Malcolm Braly, Robert Olen Butler, Erskine Caldwell, Daniel Mark Epstein, Barry Hannah, Jim Harrison, Joseph Heller, James Leo Herlihy, William Hjortsberg, Maxine Kumin, Norman Mailer, Tom McGuane, Tim McLaurin, Donn Pearce, James Tiptree, Dan Wakefield, Charles Willeford and Miller Williams.)

In the 1970s there is also correspondence between previous hitCrews next hit and his friend and fellow Florida writer/screenwriter Donn Pearce describing the screenwriting business, and an increasing flow of letters from anxious would-be producers seeking options on his novels. This period also is marked by the appearance of correspondence with editors at Playboy and Esquire, with whom previous hitCrews next hit contracted to write magazine articles and (at Esquire) a monthly column, and with subsequent publishers and editors at Atheneum, Harper & Row, and Alfred A. Knopf in the United States and at Martin Secker & Warburg in England.

In the late 1970s and into the late 1980s, the volume of correspondence drops off noticeably, coinciding with a "dry" period of previous hitCrews next hit' output following A Feast of Snakes (1976), at a time when his difficulties in composing his acclaimed memoir A Childhood (1978), increased efforts to lecture and generate screenplays for money, and disruptive periods of alcohol abuse, resulted in previous hitCrews next hit' not publishing a major work again until the appearance in 1987 of All We Need of Hell. The amount of correspondence in the files increases with this reappearance in print, which coincides with his first work for theatrical production, a two-act play ( Blood Issue) commissioned for the Humana Festival of New Plays in Louisville, Kentucky.

In the 1990s correspondence files begin to include writers like Jay Atkinson, former student of previous hitCrews next hit', and Mississippi novelist Larry Brown, who first approached previous hitCrews next hit as a fan in 1990 and with whom he would remain friends until Brown's death in 2004. Letters from bibliographers and scholars in the years from 1990 onward into the 21 st century reflect a growing acknowledgment of previous hitCrews next hit' importance by academia. Contacts with editors and publishers are now complemented by correspondence from European translators and publishers, who are facilitating the appearance of editions in French and Italian. This latter period also includes a bit of correspondence from previous hitCrews next hit' fan, friend, and interview subject Sean Penn, and with his then-wife, celebrity singer/actress Madonna, as well as letters from small-press publishers Herb Yellin (Lord John Press) and Craig Graham (Vagabond Press) who issue editions of unpublished previous hitCrews next hit fiction and nonfiction, and letters from persons associated with film projects having to do with previous hitCrews next hit' life, his novels, and Southern culture.

Manuscripts of Harry previous hitCrews next hit writings and related compositional or publication-related materials - i.e. notes, research materials, publisher galleys, promotional materials or cover design -- dominate the Works series of the Harry previous hitCrews next hit Papers.

The Extended Works subseries includes manuscripts of previous hitCrews next hit' twenty novels, his memoir A Childhood: The Biography of a Place, six screenplays, a two-act play, early poetry, several short stories, and most of his essays, book reviews, and journalism. In this series thre are are four full-length unpublished manuscripts--three novels and one book of previously uncollected nonfiction.

(NOTE: Items in Box 15 relating to unpublished chapters of the memoir Assault of Memory are closed until the work is published or Harry previous hitCrews next hit elects to open the files.)

For convenience, previous hitCrews next hit' copies of the adapted screenplays of The Gospel Singer, Car, The Gypsy's Curse, and The Hawk is Dying by other authors are included in the Works series, and are filed following previous hitCrews next hit' work in each title.

(NOTE: Many of the Works manuscript files contain drafts that show previous hitCrews next hit' revising and rewriting. In some cases, whole abandoned or rejected scenes of novels resurface in files for new works. For example: Parts of previous hitCrews next hit' 1998 novel Where Does One Go When There's No Place Left to Go? first appear in an unpublished manuscript of The Enthusiast, composed circa 1972 and in drafts of his 1987 novel All We Need of Hell. Similarly, parts of a screenplay for All We Need of Hell are found on the reverse of discarded draft sections of A Feast of Snakes. In another instance, segments of previous hitCrews next hit' two early attempts at a memoir- Halflife and Take 38-later emerge as a single unpublished essay, "Of Elephants, Heroes, and LSD," which he eventually cannibalized, revised, and published as separate Esquire columns.)

The Short Works subseries provide a view of previous hitCrews next hit' earliest writing, including early undated poems and drafts of his first published works, the short stories "The Unattached Smile," "It Reminds One of the Opera," and "A Long Wail."

The "Articles, Essays, Reviews" subseries is a comprehensive file previous hitCrews next hit' nonfiction and critical writing. Files of his journalism for magazines like Playboy, Esquire, Southern magazine, and FAME include not only manuscripts but also notes and research materials accumulated by previous hitCrews next hit in the course of journalistic assignments. The extensive files of previous hitCrews next hit' book reviews for national media like The New York Times Book Review, Los Angeles Times' book section, and Washington Post BookWorld include several reviews that are absent from bibliographies of his work.

(NOTE: Audio cassette tapes from some assignments and dictabelts used by previous hitCrews next hit in the composition of his autobiographical Childhood were included in the Harry previous hitCrews next hit Papers, but they may be unavailable while in the process of preservation reformatting, for eventual placement in the University Libraries' Media Archives. An inventory of these audiotapes and dictabelts--"Media formats included in Harry previous hitCrews next hit Papers, transferred to Media Archives"--is attached at the end of this finding aid.)

Chief among the Business and Legal series (1967-2005) are contracts for many of the original issues, paperback editions, or foreign translations of most of previous hitCrews next hit' books. A number of contracts for movie production option rights to his novels are also to be found in this series, as are contracts for previous hitCrews next hit' 1989 play, Blood Issue, and two screenplays ( Boomtown and Clown). The remaining contracts comprise mostly republication or reprint permissions for articles, and a handful of magazine contracts for the original articles. The balance of Business and Legal Papers consists of earnings and royalty statements from previous hitCrews next hit' publishers and literary agents, scattered files of travel receipts, honoraria, and contracts for lectures, mostly from the period 1970-1975.

Subject files (1953-2006) comprise the remaining document files, and these include a voluminous archive of articles about Harry previous hitCrews next hit and his writings and the few biographical materials included in the collection - yearbooks, awards, vitae, college transcripts and Marine Corps service file. A transcript of a "family history" interview previous hitCrews next hit did with an aunt, and scattered personal notes are also filed here. This series includes files on previous hitCrews next hit' awards and fellowships, some University of Florida teaching files, information files on the Bread Loaf Writers Conference (1968-1973) and the Florida Writers Conference (1970-1974), notes for his Bread Loaf lectures, appointment planners, addresses, and phone numbers.

The majority of the Subject series' files, however, are secondary source materials: Reviews of previous hitCrews next hit' books (1967-2003), writings about him (1963-2003, n.d.), and writings by others (1974-1993, n.d.). The last subcategory includes works by Byron previous hitCrews next hit, Daniel Mark Epstein, Jim Harrison, and Maxine Kumin, and a screenplay of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Cross Creek. However, most "Writing by Others" are unpublished papers and scholarly offprints about previous hitCrews next hit' work, including bibliographies by Damon Sauve and Michael Hargraves and a folder of binder's gatherings of the entire text of David Jeffrey's 1993 compilation A Grit's Triumph.

The "Writings about HC" files are a separate category from reviews of previous hitCrews next hit' books, and consist of original clippings and photocopies of published newspaper and periodical articles, from U.S., English, and French publications. Researchers seeking articles about previous hitCrews next hit should inspect both "Articles about HC" and "Writing by Others" subcategories.

The "Reviews" folders include reviews of all previous hitCrews next hit' works up through Celebration (1998). Reviews of Erik Bledsoe's 1999 compilation of interviews with Harry previous hitCrews next hit, Getting Naked With Harry previous hitCrews next hit, are also included in these files.

Videotapes and audio cassettes of Harry previous hitCrews next hit' interviews or TV/movie appearances were transferred to the University Libraries' Media Archive, and a list ("Media formats included in Harry previous hitCrews next hit Papers, transferred to Media Archives") of those is attached to this finding aid.

The Photographs series is the last and smallest series, consisting mostly of a few scattered, recent portraits of Harry previous hitCrews next hit alone or photographed with friends, and in Marine Corps unit class photos from 1953-1954. There are also photos of Sally previous hitCrews next hit, Maggie Powell, and James Dickey in this file.

Omitted: Fan mail pictures from which Harry previous hitCrews next hit is absent have been left out of this series, and instead can be found attached to their respective letters in Correspondence. Photos of previous hitCrews next hit and Charles Bronson from previous hitCrews next hit' 1975 Playboy assignment on Bronson are located in the "The Knuckles of Saint Bronson" file in the "Articles, Essays, Reviews" subseries of Works.

A much more extensive collection of photographs of Harry previous hitCrews next hit, his family and friends remain in previous hitCrews next hit' personal photo collection. Selections from this collection are on deposit in the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and available for viewing only with the written permission of Harry previous hitCrews next hit.

The collection is organized into five series: correspondence, writings, business and legal papers, subject files, and photographs.

Series Descriptions and Folder Listing

 

1. Correspondence

11.0 boxes
The material in this series ranges from exchanges with editors, agents, family and fellow writers, to previous hitCrews next hit' apprentice-period rejection slips, fan mail, Christmas cards, and correspondence with scholars, reporters and academic acquaintances from the lecture circuit. Incoming correspondence is much heavier (approx. 1600 items) than outgoing (approximately 200). previous hitCrews next hit' letters to others include handwritten drafts, typed and occasionally signed copies and carbons. Business letters designed primarily as contracts are filed in Business and Legal Papers; however, cover letters (for manuscripts or contracts, for example) that discuss other matters are filed in Correspondence, and preservation photocopies have been created and appended to the materials to which they originally came attached. Correspondence files occasionally include enclosures, such as clippings, works by others, and photographs; but all photos in which previous hitCrews next hit is present have been removed to Series 5, Photos. In instances where photos, drawings, copies of writing, articles or other enclosures have been removed, preservation photocopies have been inserted with pertinent cross-references.

2. Works

60.0 boxes
The Works series documents previous hitCrews next hit' work from his first publication (the short story "An Unattached Smile," 1963) through An American Family (2006). The series includes all previous hitCrews next hit' published novels, most of his stories, essays, journalism, reviews and other nonfiction writings, original screenplays, working and final scripts for his play Blood Issue, and some unpublished works of various types and lengths. Screenplays of previous hitCrews next hit' novels adapted by other writers have been filed with the original works. The majority of the Works files contain previous hitCrews next hit' handwritten and typescript drafts and revisions of his publications. In several instances notes and research materials, publisher's proofs of articles and books, and periodicals containing short works and excerpts of extended works are present; as are some publisher promotional materials, book jackets, and illustrative materials. Portions of one box - Assault of Memory - are restricted.
Writings files are arranged in three groups: 1) Extended Works, 2) Short Works, and 3) Articles, Essays, Reviews. In general, previous hitCrews next hit' books, short stories, and screenplays are filed by the published title or, if unpublished, by the last working title. His articles and essays have been filed under previous hitCrews next hit' working titles (when extant) rather than published titles, and his book reviews are filed by the book's title. Under each title, as best as possible, drafts have been organized in order of composition from earliest to latest, with fragments grouped together prior to complete drafts.
