The final booka memoir on which he was working at the time of his deathfrom Reynolds Price, "one of the most important voices in modern Southern fiction" ( The New York Times). When Reynolds Price died in January 2011, he left behind one final piece of writingtwo hundred candid, heartrending, and marvelously written manuscript pages about a critical period in his young adulthood. Picking up where his previous memoir, Ardent Spirits,left off, the work documents a brief time from 1961 to 1965. Midstream,which begins when Price is twenty-eight, details the final youthful adventures of a man on the cusp of artistic acclaim. Here, Price chases a love to England, only to meet heartbreak. Determined to pursue other pleasures, he travels to Sweden for a friend's wedding, then journeys to Rome with British poet Stephen Spender and spends an afternoon with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Price returns to the United States, where he finds company with a group of artists as he awaits the 1962 publication of his first novel, A Long and Happy Life. "Few writers have made as dramatic an entrance on the American literary stage," declared The New York Timeson the book's success. Midstreamoffers a poignant portrait of a man at the threshold of true adulthood, navigating new responsibilities and pleasures alike. It is a fitting bookend for Price's remarkable career, and it reinforces his place in the pantheon of American literature.
