Told exceptionally well by Laurence Bergreen in what is, rather surprisingly, the first full Agee biography…. “James Agee: A Life” may be even be a better book than James Agee, the man or writer, deserved.
– Jonathan Yardly

Newsday

In this first full-scale life of multi-talented writer—poet, journalist, novelist, film critic, screenwriter—Laurence Bergreen has made the most of this bounty. His “James Agee: A Life” is a biography of uncommon style and substance with a sure feeling for the subtleties of character…. What the biographer has given us, in short, is a superb evocation of the writer.
– Dan Cryer
