The first in a set of seven collections of his journals, this volume of memoirs and extracts covers Edmund Wilson's childhood in Red Bank, New Jersey, his education at the Hill School and then Princeton, and then the war years, where Wilson served as an ambulance driver. The book ends in 1919, as the author sets off for New York and a career in magazine writing and editing.
