And Then They Loved Him
Seward Collins and the Chimera of an American Fascism
©2006 Monographs 206 Pages
In Jazz Age America and Europe few stars burned brighter than Seward Collins, who seemingly had it all – money, breeding, good looks, and literary talent. His friends included Fitzgerald, Dreiser, Mencken, and Hemingway, while among his lovers was Dorothy Parker. Yet, in the 1930s, this glittering creature would announce that he was a «Fascist». This book, useful for any study of the American Jazz Age or world Fascism, explores Collins’ curious story, and asks if there might be a Fascist tradition in America, as much a part of the nation as Flag Day and apple pie.
