The Ballad of John Latouche

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Latouche’s background growing up in Richmond, Virginia. It includes brief discussion of such leading local artistic figures of the time as James Branch Cabell, Ellen Glasgow, and John Powell, all of whom played some role, even if indirectly, in his life. This chapter also explores Latouche’s deception regarding basic facts about his life and background, including his age and his Jewish roots on his mother’s side. This chapter also covers his parents’ marriage and divorce, and his relationship with his mother, brother, and other family members. Some consideration is given to Richmond’s Jewish community, and Latouche’s religious affiliation and spiritual interests.

Keywords:   Richmond Virginia, James Branch Cabell, Ellen Glasgow, John Powell, Effie Latouche, Latouche family, Richmond’s Jewish community
