selections re Dreiser from the diary of Elenaor Anderson


“Selections from The Diary of Eleanor Anderson, 1933-1940,” compiled by Hilbert H. Campbell, The Sherwood Anderson Review, XXVI (winter 2001), pp. 10-11.

Eleanor Copenhaver Anderson was Sherwood Anderson’s third wife.

I wish to thank Sherwood Anderson scholar Claire Bruyère for calling my attention to this excerpt and providing me with a copy.

a visit with Dreiser; from “The Diary of Anaïs Nin”


In January 1935, Anaïs Nin paid a visit to Dreiser in his apartment at the Hotel Ansonia in Manhattan. She recorded the visit in her diary, an excerpt from which is attached.

This meeting seems to have escaped the notice of Dreiser biographers.
