Chuck Close : life and work, 1988-1995 by John Guare( Book )

12 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 )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 401 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."--Jacket

Before law and order took hold, New Orleans was boisterous; before class, racial and political lines were drawn, it was a parade of beautiful women and good-looking men, flowing wine, and pleasure for the taking. At the center of this Dionysian world is Jacques Cornet, who commands the men, seduces the women, preens the peacock, and cuts a wide swath through the city and the province. But, it is 1801 and the map of New Orleans is about to be redrawn. The Louisiana Purchase will bring American rule to New Orleans, challenging the chaotic, colorful world of Jacques Cornet and all that he represents

"This new volume includes John Guare's Woman at a Threshold, Beckoning; John Ford Noonan's The Raunchy Dame in the Chinese Raincoat; Tina Howe's Water Music; and Joe Pintauro's Ten-Dollar Drinks. The subject matter of this 12-play collection, with half of the plays by women, is up to the minute: In Jules Tasca's The Death of Bliss a young Palestinian wife pleads with her husband not to become a suicide bomber. Melanie Marnich's The Right to Remain was commissioned by Mixed Blood Theatre for its Bill of (W)Rights project, designed to explore the state of the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights at the beginning of 2004. Peter Maloney's Leash is set in the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. And for variety's sake, Deborah Brevoort's Blue Moon Over Memphis is a Noh Drama about Elvis Presley. Other plays rounding out the collection include Jordan Harrison's Fit for Feet; Mary Gallagher's Perfect; and Lavonne Mueller's The Wounded Do Not Cry, the latter inspired by the life of Frances Slanger, forgotten heroine of the Normandy invasion."--Publisher's description
