The Pursuit of Authenticity: James Agee as Critic
January 9, 2017

Writer James Agee died in 1955, but the re-discovery of his work continues today. This month, the University of Tennessee Press will release new collections reflecting on Agee’s work as a critic and journalist. Tuesday evening, English Professor Michael Lofaro will lead a discussion about Agee’s nonfiction work as part of the UT Humanities Center's "Conversations and Cocktails" series. Professor Lofaro says while Agee is widely known for his novels, his book and film reviews are well worth examining.
