Red-dirt marijuana, and other tastes by Terry Southern( Book )

30 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 454 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 & rsquo;s master satirist One 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 & rsquo;s most classic and lyrical early works of fiction. & ldquo;Red-Dirt Marijuana, & rdquo; 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 & ldquo;Razor Fight. & rdquo; One of the most scandalous stories ever published, & ldquo;The Blood of a Wig, & rdquo; combines an insider & rsquo;s look at the & ldquo;Quality Lit & rdquo; biz, the drug underground of Greenwich Village, and a vision of necrophilia involving one of America & rsquo;s most sacred cows. There is an imaginary encounter between Freud and Kafka in & ldquo;Apartment to Exchange, & rdquo; a skewering of the liberal white man and his efforts to befriend a black jazz musician in & ldquo;You & rsquo;re Too Hip, Baby, & rdquo; an exploration of race relations, moonshine, and the baton-twirling subculture in the personal essay & ldquo;Twirling at Ole Miss & rdquo; (identified by Tom Wolfe as the first instance of & ldquo;New Journalism & rdquo;), and many more pieces with Southern & rsquo;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 & rsquo;s estate

"In Flash and Filigree, his first novel, he delivers yet another outrageously funny commentary on the dark side of our national life. Frederick Eichner, world-renowned dermatologist, is visited by the entrancingly irritating Mr. Felix Treevly, who comes to him as a patient and stays as an obsession. Mr. Treevly leads the doctor into a series of hilarious and increasingly weird situations, which, with the assistance of a drunken private detective, a mad judge, a car crash, and a hashish party, finally drive him to mayhem. A wild whirlwind of a novel, Flash and Filigree is a work of comic genius from one of the wittiest writers of our time"--Amazon.com

4 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unforgettable chronicle of an era by one of America & rsquo;s wildest & mdash;and most brilliant & mdash;comedic and literary minds Edited by Nile Southern and Josh Alan Friedman Starting with his landing at the Battle of the Bulge, Terry Southern showed a knack for winding up in the world & rsquo;s most interesting places. He spent the fifties on the Left Bank of Paris, the sixties in mod London, and the seventies touring with the Rolling Stones. When the Beatles rolled out their famous pantheon of movers and shakers for the cover of Sgt. Pepper, Terry was the only guy wearing shades. When police broke heads during the & rsquo;68 democratic convention in Chicago, Southern was there to bear witness. And when Stanley Kubrick needed someone to make Dr. Strangelove funny, there was only one man qualified for the job. As the golden age of rock & rsquo;n & rsquo; roll wound down, Southern never stopped writing, and his prose never lost its trademark intensity. Filthy, fierce, and relentlessly dazzling, these letters, essays, stories, and interviews are an electric testament to one of the keenest wits of the twentieth century. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s estate
