Boston Review Explores the Fantasy World of John Cowper Powys

Roger Boylan examines the life and work of John Cowper Powys in the new issue of The Boston Review, with a nod of praise to the recent biography published by The Overlook Press: "Today, the keeper of the flame is Dr. Morine Krissdóttir, a trained psychologist and Powys scholar (the two go together like bread and butter). She has written a fine biography of this controversial figure: Descents of Memory. A spell weaves its magic in the pages of Powys’s novels, and it hovers yet over Morine Krissdóttir’s splendid biography."
