Writers as teachers/teachers as writers by Jonathan Baumbach( Book )

7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an attempt to exorcise cliched, hollow, "voiceless prose," 11 diverse novelists, poets, playwrights, essayists, and critics who are serious teachers of writing share their insights and feelings about their roles as teachers and about writing. Some of the goals expressed in these essays about the relationship between processes of writing and the teaching of writing are to create a community in the classroom whereby students are encouraged to learn from and with each other, to put the student writer in touch with himself, and to help him revive or discover his unique "personal voice." Contributing authors are Jonathan Baumbach, Wendell Berry, Robert Creeley, George P. Elliott, George Garrett, Ivan Gold, John Hawkes, Denise Levertov, Wright Morris, Grace Paley, and L. S. Simckes.

Babble by Jonathan Baumbach( Book )

7 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Babble is a humorous novel-in-stories of a baby's life. The stories are told from the baby's point of view, transcribed by his father, yielding at least a slightly unreliable narrator.

Imagine then that Francis leaves behind his former humdrum life-his formidable wife and teenage daughter-and embarks on a series of violent and erotic adventures, as dream-like as reels of film

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Baumbach & rsquo;s latest novel, Dreams of Molly, is a wonderful addition to his oeuvre. A love story as only Baumbach can write, it is filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache, as well as the New York nuances that have driven Baumbach & rsquo;s fiction from the start. As in past Baumbach novels, Dreams of Molly creates a life invented in dreams
Flight of brothers : a novella and four stories by Jonathan Baumbach( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Jonathan Baumbach has made another wonderful addition to his oeuvre with his latest collection, Flight of Brothers. The stories within are filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache, as well as the New York nuances, that have driven Baumbach & rsquo;s fiction from the start. & ldquo;With prose that is Kafa-esque, side-splitting, and existentially focused, this collection announced Baumbach as a writer of the bravest, most talented philosophical fiction one can hope to find & mdash;and also the most enjoyable. Fans of Joy Williams will swoon over the unstoppable dry-rub of fatally true humor. I couldn & rsquo;t put it down. & rdquo; & mdash;Alissa NuttingJonathan Baumbach is the author of fourteen books of fiction, including You, or The Invention of Memory; On the Way to My Father & rsquo;s Funeral: New and Selected Stories; B: A Novel; D-Tours; Separate Hours; Chez Charlotte and Emily; The Life and Times of Major Fiction; Reruns; Babble; and A Man to Conjure With. He has also published over ninety stories in such places as Esquire, Open City, and Boulevard. Baumbach, cofounder of the Fiction Collective in 1973, the first fiction writers cooperative in America, has seen his work widely praised. His short stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Best of TriQuarterly. The New York Times Book Review referred to him in 2004 as & ldquo;an underappreciated writer. He employs a masterfully dispassionate, fiercely intelligent narrative voice whose seeming objectivity is always a faltering front for secret passion and despair. & rdquo
