Chuck Close : life and work, 1988-1995 by John Guare ( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In December 1988, at a high point of his career, a collapsed spinal artery left the painter Chuck Close paralyzed from the shoulders down. He was famous by then for his monumental portraits that deconstructed the conventional notions of identity and personality. Now Close was forced to confront his own identity: could a paralyzed man make monumental art? Three years later, a show of new Close paintings appeared; to the astonishment of the art world, they were as large and powerful as ever. Not only had he found a way to paint his physically demanding portraits again; they had also been transformed. A more impressionistic and dynamic vision now throbbed from his canvases with new emotional intensity. In this book, Close has collaborated with his friend, playwright John Guare, to produce a narrative account that tells the story of what Close calls "the event": the day of the trauma itself, the months of slowly recovering the minimal movement that allows him to still paint, and the transformation of his art as a result. The book also brings together all of his new paintings from the last seven years, including images of Roy Lichtenstein, Eric Fischl, April Gornik, and other major contemporary artists. Taking the reader even further into his vision, Close brings Guare behind the canvas and into the Polaroid studio to photograph him as a potential subject for a new portrait. With a unique combination of documentary photographs and commentary, Close shows how he conceives and begins the process of making a portrait, and how the subject plays a role in shaping the final image

A few stout individuals : a play in two acts by John Guare ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This latest work from award winning playwright John Guare, author of House of Blue Leaves and Six Degrees of Separation, addresses ideas of history and memory, fame and ignominy, reason and insanity, with trademark Guare imagination. It's 1885. Ulysses S. Grant is penniless and dying of throat cancer in his Fifth Avenue brownstone while struggling to finish his memoirs. He's continuously cajoled and pestered by everyone from his wife and children to his publisher, Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain), to - via drugged hallucinations - the Emperor of Japan. Although he completes his memoirs eventually, the audience is left questioning their accuracy, and, ultimately, the authenticity of history itself."--BOOK JACKET

A free man of color by John Guare ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Guare's new play is astonishing, raucous, and panoramic. A Free Man of Color is set in boisterous New Orleans prior to the historic Louisiana Purchase. Before law and order took hold and class, racial, and political lines were drawn, New Orleans was a carnival of beautiful women, flowing wine, and pleasure for the taking. At the center of this Dionysian world is the mulatto Jacques Cornet, who commands men, seduces women, and preens like a peacock. But it is 1801 and the map of New Orleans is about to be redrawn. The Louisiana Purchase brings American rule and racial segregation to the chaotic, colorful world of Jacques Cornet and all that he represents, turning the tables on freedom and liberty"--Publisher's website
