Aldous Huxley recollected : an oral history by David King Dunaway( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 444 libraries worldwide
Best-selling author Aldous Huxley's American years have been a period literary historians discounted. His reputation suffered after his exile to California, which he undertook partly for the sake of his failing sight, partly out of disappointment with the European peace movement, and partly in search of new spiritual direction. His writing and life underwent many transformations, and many crucial unanswered questions remained about his sojourn: Were the writings of the American years as self-indulgent as critics claimed? What sort of screenwriter was he: did this nearly blind writer ever learn the craft of scriptwriting? How did the cinematic conventions influence his own art? How and why did he become involved with mysticism and vision-inducing drugs? Did he ever reach that unitary mystical experience he sought throughout the last decades of his life? Prominent oral historian and biographer David Dunaway responds to these questions in this new revised edition, using interviews with co-workers, family and friends, and an analysis of Huxley's FBI files and little-known scripts for Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice
Writing the Southwest by David King Dunaway( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 417 libraries worldwide
A region where dances for rain and prayers to the santos mix with New Age and high-tech jargon has produced some of the most exciting writing in America today. The common thread that links such writers as Edward Abbey, Tony Hillerman, Joy Harjo, Barbara Kingsolver, and Terry McMillan is an understanding of the interplay between humans and the earth. This compelling collection offers outstanding selections of contemporary Southwestern literature along with a biographical profile, a bibliography, and an original interview with each of the fourteen authors included. Here are the words of rangy Frank Waters, who at ninety-three is still the "dean of Western writers"; the rhythms of Navajo songs, in the poetry of Native American Luci Tapahonso; the political, highly charged prose of John Nichols, in his classic The Milagro Beanfield War; and the magical realism of Rudolfo Anaya, one of the founders of Chicano literature. Diverse in style and focus, the authors of the Southwest are united by a sense of place and an awareness of the heritage and textures of this multicultural, multilingual land
A Route 66 companion ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
"Even before there was a road, there was a route. Buffalo trails, Indian paths, the old Santa Fe trace--all led across the Great Plains and the western mountains to the golden oasis of California. America's insatiable westering urge culminated in Route 66, the highway that ran from Chicago to Los Angeles. Opened in 1926, Route 66 became the quintessential American road. It offered the chance for freedom and a better life, whether you were down-and-out Okies fleeing the Dust Bowl in the 1930s or cool guys cruising in a Corvette in the 1960s. Even though the interstates long ago turned Route 66 into a bylane, it still draws travelers from around the world who long to experience the freedom of the open road. A Route 66 Companion gathers fiction, poetry, memoir, and oral history to present a literary historical portrait of America's most storied highway. From accounts of pioneering trips across the western plains to a sci-fi fantasy of traveling Route 66 in a rocket, here are stories that explore the mystique of the open road, told by master storytellers ranging from Washington Irving to Raymond Chandler, Joan Didion, Sylvia Plath, Leslie Marmon Silko, and John Steinbeck. Interspersed among them are reminiscences that, for the first time, honor the varied cultures--Native American, Mexican American, and African American, as well as Anglo--whose experiences run through the Route 66 story like the stripe down the highway. So put the top down, set the cruise control, and "make that California trip" with A Route 66 Companion."--P. [4] of cover
