RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Noted American author whose early death at age 45 and posthumously published works elevated him to the mythic status of romantic literary hero-victim. Agee's best known books include the compelling documentary collaboration with photographer Walker Evans, "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men" (1941) which chronicled the hard lives of Alabama sharecroppers, and the autobiographical, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "A Death in the Family" (posthumously published in 1957).

The book "Chaplin and Agee: The Untold Story of the Tramp, the Writer, and the Lost Screenplay" by John Wranovics was published in 2005 which chronicles Agee's relationship with Charlie Chaplin before Chaplin's departure for England. The book includes a remarkable screenplay Agee wrote featuring the Little Tramp as the primary figure in New York after a nuclear holocaust.
