Descripción Anchor, 2012. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Lucking Out is one of Slate ''s Best Books of 2011! Praise for Lucking Out : " Superb. "- Wall Street Journal " Very sharp and very funny ."-David Kelly, New York Times " The subject matter was enough to suck me into these pages : The Village Voice in the 1970s, Patti Smith and the punk scene, porno theaters in Times Square, Pauline Kael and her acolytes-New York City journalism at its gossipy best. But Wolcott's sometimes almost crazy style is what kept me reading ."-David Haglund, Slate " Wolcott''s memories of CBGB, while free of nostalgia.are suffused with elegiac ardency . As critic-stylists go, Wolcott is up there with John Leonard and Wilfrid Sheed . [But] what ultimately makes this book so vital is its documentation of one writer''s beginnings . Beneath the scrapbook of memories lies a sneaky defense of a scrappy literary life that is in danger of fading into the same oblivion as Mohawk haircuts and black leather jackets adorned with safety pins."-Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times "Longtime Vanity Fair cultural critic Wolcott ( Attack Poodles and Other Media Mutants , 2004, etc.) celebrates the Big Apple as a haven for the writers, artists, musicians and eccentrics who thrived at its core in the 1970s. Of the many sentences in Wolcott's memoir that will have contemporary Manhattan-philes gnashing their teeth in envy is this one recounting how the author dealt with losing his on-site staff job at the Village Voice : "From that point onward I never worked a regular office job again, solely writing for a living, something that would have been impossible if New York hadn't been a city of low rents and crappy expectations that didn't require a trust fund or a six-figure income for the privilege of watching everything fall apart before your eyes." Actually, the entire book is not only a bittersweet valentine to a much-maligned era but a model of exemplary prose that any writer would do well to study. Wolcott's talent for choosing words, shaping sentences, constructing paragraphs and crafting each of the five sections into an essay that stands on its own reveals an architectonic approach lacking in many current memoirs. The author also understands how to apply his individual experiences to the larger context of the zeitgeist . For example, the section entitled "Bodily Contact" weaves personal encounters into a critique of "Me Decade" sexual mores, drawing on Bob Fosse films, the seedy atmosphere of pretourist friendly Times Square, the emerging gay-rights movement and concerns about the dark side of the pick-up culture prevalent at both straight and gay bars. Wolcott also rubbed shoulders with the luminaries of the day, including his mentor, the rabble-rousing author Norman Mailer, punk songstress Patti Smith and legendary movie critic Pauline Kael. His poignant reminiscences of Kael pave the way for the book's plaintive conclusion. Gives the lie to the belief that the '70s contained nothing but disco decadence and self-help solipsism ." - Kirkus Reviews (starred) "No fan of memoirs, Vanity Fair cultural critic Wolcott has nonetheless written one about his wonder years in New York City in the 1970s. Given his role as tastemaker in writing about music, movies, television, and books, Wolcott presents both a self-portrait as a novice arts journalist and a portrait gallery of the scene makers during the heyday of consequences-be-damned criticism. With some offhand encouragement from Norman Mailer, Wolcott quixotically quit college, moved to New York, and badgered his way into a job at the then enormously influential Village Voice. His hilarious account of his trial by fire at this veritable "gladiator school" for journalism is acidly revealing of the dynamics at work in crisis-riddled New York, a crucible for gutsy creativity . Wolcott incisively celebrates such key figures as Patti Smith and David Byrne, caustically annihilates prominent writers, and pra. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0767930622

Descripción Anchor Books, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 202 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From one of our most admired (and feared) cultural critics, a memoir that captures all the gritty, grubby glamour of New York in the awful/wonderful Seventies. In the autumn of 1972, a very young and green James Wolcott arrived in New York from Maryland, full of literary dreams, equipped with a letter of introduction from Norman Mailer, and having no idea what was about to hit him. Landing at a time of accelerating municipal squalor and, paradoxically, gathering cultural energy in all spheres as Downtown became a category of art and life unto itself, he embarked upon his sentimental education, seventies New York style. This portrait of a critic as a young man is also a rollicking, acutely observant portrait of a legendary time and place. Mixing grit and glitter in just the right proportions, suffused with affection for the talented and sometimes half-crazed denizens of the scene, it will make readers long for a time when you really could get mugged around here.
