Sinopsis: A witty, psychedelic, and telling novel of the 1960s

Richard Fariña evokes the Sixties as precisely, wittily, and poignantly as F. Scott Fitzgerald captured the Jazz Age. The hero, Gnossus Pappadopoulis, weaves his way through the psychedelic landscape, encountering-among other things-mescaline, women, art, gluttony, falsehood, science, prayer, and, occasionally, truth.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Review: This is the ultimate novel of college life during the first hallucinatory flowering of what has famously come to be known as The Sixties. Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me follows haunted ur-hippy Gnossos Pappadopoulis upon return to his old university town that's just tilting into a new era, and Gnossos' involvement in a swirl of sixties-style drug taking and the search for love and the meaning of it all. It is a hilarious and haunting book.

Descripción Penguin Books; Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics Ser., Harmondsworth, 1983. Paperback. Estado de conservación: Very Good. xiv, 329 pp.; 20 cm. First published, 1966. Tight, clean copy. Browning. "The classic novel of the 1960s - an unerring, corrosively comic depiction of a campus in revolt. Fariña evokes the Sixties as precisely, wittily, and poignantly as F. Scott Fitzgerald captured the Jazz Age. The hero, Gnossus Pappadopoulis, weaves his way through the psychedelic landscape, encountering - among other things - mescaline, women, art, gluttony, falsehood, science, prayer, and, occasionally, truth. A portrait of an explosive decade, sparkling with inventive writing and conveying the essence of a generation, Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me, as Thomas Pynchon writes in the introduction, 'comes on like the Hallelujah Chorus done by 200 kazoo players with perfect pitch.'/ Richard Fariña was killed in a motorcycle accident in Carmel, California, on April 30, 1966 - two days after the publication of Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me. Mr Fariña was born of a Cuban father and Irish mother, both of whom came to this country during the 1930's, and he spent time with them in Brooklyn, Cuba, and Northern Ireland. At eighteen he worked with members of the Irish Republican Army but eventually had to leave the country. Much the same happened in Cuba, which he visited often when Fidel Castro was still in the mountains and again during the heavy fighting in Santa Clara and while the revlutionary army was entering Havana. From the time Mr. Fariña left Cornell University in 1959 until late 1963 he lived in London and Paris. The author wrote that he made his living from 'music, street-singing, script-writing, acting, a little smuggling, anything to hang on. Lost thirty pounds.' In 1963 Mr. Fariña married Mimi Baez and returned to California, where he finished Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me. His shorter work appeared in such magazines as Poetry, The Atlantic, and Mademoiselle, and his plays were produced at Cornell and at The Image Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Also a respected folk-rock singer and composer, Mr. Fariña appeared with his wife at the Newport Folk Festical and on tour, and two of their record albums were released. The first was chosen one of the ten best folk records of 1965 by The New York Times, and that newspaper called the second, Reflections in a Crystal Wind, 'wild, imaginative, poetic, surprising.' A posthumous collection of his writings, Long Time Coming and a Long Time Gone, was published in 1969." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Nº de ref. de la librería 086493
