A book-length study of the collaboration between Willa Cather and Edith Lewis.

I propose to spend summer 2017 working on two chapters of my book “The Creative Partnership of Willa Cather and Edith Lewis,” which reconstructs and analyzes the relationship between Cather, an American novelist, and Lewis, a magazine editor and advertising writer with whom Cather shared a home in New York City for nearly four decades. The book, which will consist of an introduction and seven chapters, is under contract with Oxford University Press with a final delivery date of 1 September 2019. By May 2017, I anticipate having produced complete drafts of the introduction and three chapters. During the fellowship term, I propose to write two more chapters, one on Cather and Lewis’s shared Southwestern travels and Cather’s two novels drawing on those experiences, and another on Lewis’s career as an advertising copywriter and Cather’s engagements with commercial and celebrity culture in the 1920s.
