ReviewA Summer to Be is an intimate glimpse at Garland’s life during the twentieth century when the radical realist became a conservative arbiter of literary standards and when the roving bachelor became a loving father and a controlling patriarch. . . . In editing this work, Keith Newlin has performed a great literary service, his introduction and notes providing the context that unifies the work.”—Roark Mulligan, Studies in American Naturalism
(Roark Mulligan Studies in American Naturalism 20090929)

"Keith Newlin's superb introduction and notes contextualize the memoir and make it a valuable addition to Garland scholarship."—Marcia Noe, Annals of Iowa
