Red-dirt marijuana, and other tastes by Terry Southern ( Book )
15 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An underground classic, Red-Dirt Marijuana is a brilliant collection of incisive, darkly comic, devastating stories and wide-ranging pieces by America's master satiristOne of the great collections, the range found here is impressive: from new journalism to absurd parodies and theatrical sketches; from absurd short riffs to Southern's most classic and lyrical early works of fiction. "Red-Dirt Marijuana," the insightful, funny, and moving story of the relationship between a white boy and a black man, is paired with the horrific knock-down, drag-out of "Razor Fight." One of the most scandalous stories ever published, "The Blood of a Wig," combines an insider's look at the "Quality Lit" biz, the drug underground of Greenwich Village, and a vision of necrophilia involving one of America's most sacred cows. There is an imaginary encounter between Freud and Kafka in "Apartment to Exchange," a skewering of the liberal white man and his efforts to befriend a black jazz musician in "You're Too Hip, Baby," an exploration of race relations, moonshine, and the baton-twirling subculture in the personal essay "Twirling at Ole Miss" (identified by Tom Wolfe as the first instance of "New Journalism"), and many more pieces with Southern's signature dark satire, unconventional storylines, and pitch-perfect dialogue. Red-Dirt Marijuana and Other Tastes is a wild, funny, and dazzlingly diverse trip through the American culture of the 1950s and 1960s. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate
Flash and filigree, a novel by Terry Southern ( Book )
27 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A satirical dream-logic journey through the dark heart of 1950s Los AngelesDr. Frederick Eichner, world-renowned dermatologist, is visited by the entrancingly irritating Felix Treevly who comes to him as a patient and stays as an obsession. Prosaic incidents blossom into bizarre developments with the sharpened reality of dreams as the spectral Mr. Treevly leads the doctor into a series of increasingly weird situations. With the assistance of a drunken private detective, a mad judge, a car crash, a game show called "What's My Disease," and a hashish party, Treevly drives Eichner to madness and mayhem. It is through comedy and a strange blend of violence and poetic delicacy that the novel charms. Southern's first novel, Flash and Filigree was turned down by seventeen timorous American publishers. It was Southern's mentor, the "genius" English novelist Henry Green, who brought the book to the attention of a leading British publishing house, which released it to high praise. A fast-paced dark comedy, Flash and Filigree established Terry Southern as one of the finest American prose stylists to emerge in Paris after the War. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate
