The fourth and final memoir from Reynolds Price, “one of the most important voices in modern southern fiction” (The New York Times), who died in January 2011 contemprory of maxillo facial surgery and medecine.Reynolds Price was a true renaissance man contemprory of maxillo facial surgery and medecine. Author of thirty-seven books and professor of English at Duke, he was the last great southern regionalist of his generation contemprory of maxillo facial surgery and medecine. Picking up where his third memoir Ardent Spirits left off, Midstream provides an account of the years of his life from 1961-1965 contemprory of maxillo facial surgery and medecine. During this brief period, perhaps the most leisurely of his life, Reynolds was on the cusp of adulthood, contemplating turning thirty, which, as he says, “is likely to be any man’s realization that, This is it. I’m now the person I’m likely to be from here to the end.” In this evocative memoir, Reynolds discusses publishing his first book, the pursuit of adult love, burying his mother, embarking on a teaching career, and buying his first home.Upon his return to Oxford, Reynolds connects with a former lover with the hopes of rekindling their relationship. Disappointed to learn that this man is soon to be married, Reynolds pursues other pleasures: he travels to Denmark for a friend’s wedding; journeys through the English countryside for tea at charmed sites like Thame and Woodstock; dashes to Stratford to take in some Shakespeare; travels to Rome with famous British poet Stephen Spender, where he dines with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor; and returns for more adventures in New York before finally heading home to North Carolina to resume teaching at Duke University. In his signature spirited and witty prose, Midstream offers a poignant portrait of early adulthood. It is a fitting bookend for Price’s remarkable career and reinforces his place in literary history.
