About the Author

Edward Dahlberg (1900-1977) was born in Boston. He was placed in a Cleveland, Ohio orphanage in 1912 and enlisted in the army during the last days of World War I. He received a degree from Columbia University then became part of the community of expatriate American writers in late-1920s Paris. Later in his career, he devoted considerable time to literary study and criticism, and was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1976.

Reviews

Dahlberg wed the kill-the-father imperative, the famous anxiety of influence, to the truism that a man is only as big as his enemies.--Jonathan Lethem
Because I Was Flesh is a work of extraordinary honesty, eloquence and power.--Alfred Kazin
