A watershed literary event at its first publication in 1941, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men is an "unsparing record of the harsh existence of three Alabama families, and a poetic meditation on the terrible beauty of their lives," recognized by the New York Public Library as one of the most influential books of the century.

Houghton's edition of Agee and Evans's classic combo of text and pictures of impoverished Southern sharecroppers was enlarged with 64 new archival photos. This eye-opening 1939 portrait of America's peasantry remains powerful. (Classic Returns, LJ 4/1/00) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
