Nota de la solapa:

A twentieth-century classic, Appointment in Samarra" is the first and most widely read book by the writer Fran Leibowitz called "the real F. Scott Fitzgerald."
In December 1930, just before Christmas, the Gibbsville social circuit is electrified with parties and dances, where the music plays late into the night and the liquor flows freely. At the center of the social elite stand Julian and Caroline English--the envy of friends and strangers alike. But in one rash moment born inside a highball glass, Julian breaks with polite society and begins a rapid descent toward self-destruction. Appointment in Samarra" brilliantly captures the personal politics and easy bitterness of small-town life. It is John O'Hara's crowning achievement, and a lasting testament to the keen social intelligence of a major American novelist.

""Appointment in Samarra" lives frighteningly in the mind." --John Updike

"It is alive with compelling characters and O'Hara's dead-on dialogue and sharp observations." --"Chicago"" Tribune's Printers Row"

"[O'Hara] was as acute a social observer as Fitzgerald, as spare a stylist as Hemingway, and in his creation of Gibbsville, in western Pennsylvania, he invented a kind of small-bore variation on Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County." --"Los Angeles"" Times"

"With a dazzling new cover and smart new introduction, one of my favorite novels, "Appointment in Samarra" by John O'Hara, is reborn. . . . This novel about class, drinking and sex is fun--and incredibly smart." --Elizabeth Taylor, "Chicago"" Tribune"

"O'Hara was one of Mom's favorite authors. . . . 'So I finally read Appointment in Samarra, ' I told her. 'I'd always thought that book had something to do with Iraq.' . . . 'It does apply to Iraq, even if that's not at all what it's about. It's a book about setting things in motion and then being too proud and stubborn to apologize and to change course.'

"Transfixing . . . A Jazz Age novel set amidst the early throes of the Depression . . . A striking antidote to contemporary novels like Nathanael West's "Miss Lonelyhearts" and Erskine Caldwell's "Tobacco Road," which remain startling for their implacably cynical view of humanity. O'Hara offers a more nuanced, and more subversive view of the national mood at the cusp of the Depression." --Nathaniel Rich, ""The Daily Beast""

John Updike did it later, but I actually think John O Hara did it better dissecting the country club set, the ways everyone interacts with each other, their sex lives and the way men cheat. I can t think of when I ve read a book and thought it had such a modern feeling to what he chooses to say about marriage. Delia Ephron, The Wall Street Journal
