"Yvette Eastman remains 'loving and wistful, if no longer needful,' in her memories of Dreiser. Now in her 80s, she has honored her younger self with a memoir as clear-eyed as anything penned by the celebrated American realist she loved, yet remarkably open-hearted and forgiving."—New York Times
"Important ostensibly for what it has to tell about Theodore Dreiser, this book is intrinsically interesting for what readers learn about the life and times of Yvette Szekely Eastman. . . . Dearest Wilding is a welcome addition to Dreiser editions emanating from the University of Pennsylvania Press, and it heightens anticipation for Eastman's forthcoming, complete autobiography."—Indiana Magazine of History
