Willa Cather’s no-longer-secret letters

The selected Letter os Willa CatherWilla Cather, an iconic author of the American Prairie, stipulated in her will that her private letters never be published.  But after the death of her nephew and the will’s executor two years ago, that will expired, and more than 500 of her letters are now available. Offering great insights into Cather’s approach to her art, The Selected Letters of Willa Cather was released earlier this year. In this NPR interview, Steve Inskeep of “Morning Edition,” talks with co-editor of the collection, Andrew Jewell, on the depth and value of the letters’ contents.
