Haslam, Gerald W. Publication, Distribution, et. Lincoln Hayakawa had hoped to use this soapbox to address the assembled demonstrators, but instead he ended up ripping out speaker wires and halting an illegal campus demonstration or denying first-amendment rights to the crowd, depending on your perspective. Indeed, Hayakawa's entire life defies simplistic labels, and his ability to be categorized largely depends on personal perspective. This intimate and detailed biography draws on interviews with friends and family members, as well as Hayakawa's own papers and journals, to bring this controversial and fascinating figure to life
By Gerald W. Haslam with Janice E. Haslam. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2011. Gerald Haslam is entering his fifth decade of publishing novels, essays, stories, monographs, and anthologies as the primary interpreter of California in the context of the American West. In book-length studies and collections like Workin’ Man Blues: Country Music in California (1999) and Haslam’s Valley (2005), he has brought to national awareness the distinctiveness of California’s Great Central Valley as California’s Heartland and The Other California. In Haslam’s words, Hayakawa was a typical boy of the Canadian prairie, and, in Hayakawa’s own words, he was already determined to be a writer, although he pursued a PhD in English, in case, he said, I couldn’t make a living as a poet (18, 29, 37).
Janice E. Haslam is the coauthor, with Gerald W. Haslam, of the fiction collection Manuel and the Madman and An Instructor's Guide to Many Californias. In Thought and Action: The Enigmatic Life of S. I. Hayakawa traces the fascinating life of an iconic American writer, teacher, politician, and family man. In the process, authors Gerald W. Haslam and Janice E. Haslam tell us a lot about the culture wars of the 20th century-and of American identity itself. Discussing both Hayakawa's virtues and his defects, the book is thorough, readable, and sympathetic.
