Here is some of what you'll find: in "Marred Bliss," the fractured puns of a love quadrangle ("Maybe you'd rather ram off with her! She's been trying to reduce you since she got here") ... in "Diary of a Fan," the diarist's deepest thoughts ("I saw Sigourney Weaver on the street today. I pity her") ... in "The Whom of Kaboom," a perilous cruise with Jack the Hipper, sculptor of the famous Venus de Mylar ... and in "A Tall Tale," a meeting with America's tallest tall-tale hero, Johnny Business, whose wealth requires three strong men just to conceive of. Gasp for air, and then browse the high school yearbook of the planets, learn about electricity from electricity itself, and discover Emily Dickinson, advertising copywriter. Perfectly qualified critics have called O'Donnell's writing "extremely amusing," "delightful ... off-the-wall, highly original," "invigorating, gifted." Vertigo Park is the latest from his wild workshop - a hands-on volume for students of laughter everywhere

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set on "the last day on earth," this explosive farce details the reactions of a particularly zany household to the unexpected news that the world is about to end-first their disbelief and then their relief that they will no longer have to worry about refilling ice trays. Among those present are Eden, a pure-spirited girl who is trying to communicate with other planets so that she can exchange recipes; her boyfriend, Otis, a satanist who speaks in verse and aspires to become the Antichrist's personal secretary; a suicidal nymphomaniac who works for a fashion magazine which is all cover and no text; her last pick-up, Zed, a money-mad opportunist whose ambition is to be a magazine cover boy; and a senile ghost who cannot quite grasp the fact that he is dead. As promised the world does expire, with distant planets looming into view; ominous radio voices broadcasting doomsday reports; two hard-hatted angels industriously sweeping up the post-apocalypse detritus; and, in the end, one lone, dazed survivor (Zed) left behind trying to figure out what went wrong-and why

"La increíble travesía que Odiseo, héroe de la guerra de Troya emprende al regresar a su reino para reunirse con su familia en Itaca, es considerada la historia épica más grande de todos los tiempos. Este interesante programa entrelaza el libro de "La Odisea" con algunas historias modernas y nos muestra como las imágenes y eventos retratados en la historia de Odiseo aún tienen influencia en la literatura, filosofía y artes visuales del mundo actual, dando así un nuevo sentido a este gran clásico griego. Con escenas de la película Ulises (con Kirk Douglas), imágenes de archivos de la NASA del desastroso viaje del Apolo 13 y entrevistas con personalidades como el famoso astronauta Jim Lovell y el gran escritor clásico de Estados Unidos, Bernard Knox, conoceremos algunos paralelismos de la vida a través del tiempo"--Contenedor
