There is a special joy in seeing a virtuoso at work, achieving the fulfillment of his art. In a prodigious literary career, demonstrating a virtually limitless range, George Garrett's dazzling versatility has won high esteem and critical acclaim for his novels, plays, poetry, biography, and short fiction. Now, as testimony to George Garrett's vivid storytelling powers, An Evening's Performance: New and Selected Short Stories encompasses some of his best work of the past thirty years. Widely admired for his masterworks of Elizabethan times, Garrett's stories here are contemporary, colloquial, humorous, bittersweet, deeply felt without sentimentality.

Double vision : a novel by George Garrett( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A shotgun marriage of fact and fiction by one of the most highly regarded writers and teachers of our time. A writer named George Garrett, suffering from double vision as a result of a neurological disorder, is asked to review a recent, first biography of the late Peter Taylor, a renowned writer who has been his long-time friend and neighbor in Charlottesville. Reflecting on their relationship, Garrett conceives of a characternot unlike himselfa writer in his early 70s, ill and suffering from double vision, named Frank Toomer. He gives Toomer a neighbor, a distinguished short story writer named Aubrey Carver. As the real George Garrett and Peter Taylor are replaced by two very different and imaginary writers, the story becomes a wise and insightful exploration of American literary life, the art of biography, the comical rivalries among writers and academics, notions of success, and the knotty relationship of art to life, fact to fiction, and life to death. Double Visionis a witty tour de force and an elegy for a gifted generation of writers."
