In 1919 Cabell published Beyond Life, a kind of formalist credo in which he first launched his lifelong attack on literary realism.

It's an imagined conversation between John Charteris, a successful author, and a young editor. They sit in a library lined with books categorized as unwritten masterpieces or intended editions--a wry commentary on the business of publishing by one of America's overlooked masters. The two discuss writers and writing, especially those who published in the early 20th century and the demands of the market.
