Point: The Attempted Rescue was first published by Gollancz, 1966. SYNOPSIS: Robert Aickman has received due recognition for his hauntingly poetic and psychologically charged strange tales, but what sort of early life fuelled their creation? The Attempted Rescue chronicles Aickmans childhood and youth, over which looms the figure of his eccentric father, a man almost entirely resistant to normal family life, and a man who Aickman describes as dying from loss of luxuries. So much of Aickmans childhood appears bizarre and unyielding of explanation that it is little wonder that his short stories are so odd. Aickman invests the book with his startling, often politically incorrect opinions on politics, the modern industrial world and his rather bleak view of sexual relationships. But there is also much achingly heart-felt nostalgia in the atmospheric descriptions of pre-World War Two London, the theatre and the large country house of his singular Great Uncle and Aunt. Aickman displays more than a passing acquaintance with psychoanalysis in this fascinating autobiography, and we can infer that the disturbing images with which he invests his fiction are there by design. Then again, when such a master of the weird tale tells the story of his own life, how far can we be sure that he is not manipulating our expectations as subtly as he does in his fiction? REVIEWS: "Robert Aickman will be remembered primarily for his fiction, I know, but I wonder how many who are fortunate enough to read this powerful memoir will remember, instead, that boy who cringed in fear of the shouting below. For those, The Attempted Rescue will remain Aickmans most profound legacy." Lisa DuMond, Black Gate Magazine "Read The Attempted Rescue, if you are an admirer of the artist; read it also for a glimpse of a time long gone, of a past which, as Jeremy Dyson points out in his shrewd and sympathetic introduction to this volume, is indeed a foreign country." Steve Duffy, All Hallows "Aickman shows a solid comprehension of Freudian theory and he frequently refers to the sexual frustration resulting from single sex schooling and his shy nature. He demonstrates a perceptive awareness of symbols and their effect on the subconscious and comments on experiencing inexplicable fear induced by objects which in retrospect he sees as sexual symbols. This in itself certainly encourages a close re-reading of The Collected Strange Stories." - Matt Leyshon, Enigma. Language: eng. Nº de ref. del artículo: WFTB #018

Descripción Tartarus Press, 2001. Hardcover. Condición: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. NEW UK HARDBACK. LIMITED Ed. of 500. DJ in Clear, ARCHIVAL MYLAR WRAP. NO remainder mark. | SHIPS AIRMAIL INTERNATIONALLY! Robert Aickman has received due recognition for his hauntingly poetic and psychologically charged ¿strange¿ tales, but what sort of early life fuelled their creation? The Attempted Rescue chronicles Aickman¿s childhood and youth, over which looms the figure of his eccentric father, a man almost entirely resistant to ¿normal¿ family life, and a man who Aickman describes as dying ¿from loss of luxuries¿. So much of Aickman¿s childhood appears bizarre and unyielding of explanation that it is little wonder that his short stories are so odd. Aickman invests the book with his startling, often politically incorrect opinions on politics, the modern industrial world and his rather bleak view of sexual relationships. But there is also much achingly heart-felt nostalgia in the atmospheric descriptions of pre-World War Two London, the theatre and the large country house of his singular Great Uncle and Aunt. Aickman displays more than a passing acquaintance with psycho-analysis in this fascinating autobiog-raphy, and we can infer that the disturbing images with which he invests his fiction are there by design. Then again, when such a master of the weird tale tells the story of his own life, how far can we be sure that he is not manipulating our expectations as subtly as he does in his fiction?.
