9780679781264: Kafka Was the Rage: A Greenwich Village Memoir

What Hemingway's A Moveable Feast did for Paris in the 1920s, this charming yet undeceivable memoir does for Greenwich Village in the late 1940s. In 1946, Anatole Broyard was a dapper, earnest, fledgling avant-gardist, intoxicated by books, sex, and the neighborhood that offered both in such abundance. Stylish written, mercurially witty, imbued with insights that are both affectionate and astringent, this memoir offers an indelible portrait of a lost bohemia.
 
We see Broyard setting up his used bookstore on Cornelia Street—indulging in a dream that was for him as romantic as “living off the land or sailing around the world” while exercizing his libido with a protegee of Anais Nin and taking courses at the New School, where he deliberates on “the new trends in art, sex, and psychosis.” Along the way he encounters Delmore Schwartz, Caitlin and Dylan Thomas, William Gaddis, and other writers at the start of their careers. Written with insight and mercurial wit, Kafka Was the Rage elegantly captures a moment and place and pays homage to a lost bohemia as it was experienced by a young writer eager to find not only his voice but also his place in a very special part of the world.

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nineteen forty-six was a good time - perhaps the best time - in the twentieth century. The war was over and there was a terrific sense of coming back, of repossessing life. Rents were cheap, restaurants were cheap, and it seemed to me that happiness itself might be cheaply had. Broyard made his first bid for happiness by moving in with a young painter, the difficult and challenging Sheri Donatti - a protegee of Anais Nin - who never wore underpants and who embodied the new trends in art, sex, and psychosis. Broyard tells their story; by turns comic and poignant, while describing along the way his meetings with Caitlan and Dylan Thomas, Delmore Schwartz, Dwight MacDonald, Maya Deren, William Gaddis, and other writers and artists just beginning their careers. He opens a bookstore on Cornelia Street ( If it hadn t been for books we would have been entirely at the mercy of sex. Books steadied us, they gave us gravity. ). He goes to the New School and listens to Eric Fromm, Karen Horney and Meyer Shapiro ( I went to him as students, twenty years later, would go to India. ). He tries going to a psychoanalysist ( I never gave him a chance. l had a literature rather than a personality. ). In dazzling prose, Broyard captures with crystalline clarity the feeling of a particular time and place when everything mattered, everything was serious. With economy, style, wit, flair, and astounding powers of observation, Broyard has left us a most remarkable memoir. Nº de ref. de la librería ABZ9780679781264
