The splendid drunken twenties : selections from the daybooks, 1922-1930 by Carl Van Vechten( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This representative sampling from the daybooks of Carl Van Vechten, one of the most significant figures of the Harlem Renaissance, is a resource and reference tool for reconstructing the culture of 1920s New York and the social milieu during Prohibition. Bruce Kellner has provided notes identifying central figures and clarifying details." "Between 1922 and 1930, Van Vechten kept a daily record of his activities. Not exactly diaries, but more than appointment books, the daybooks record his daily comings and goings as well as the alliances, drinking habits, feuds, and affairs of a wide number of luminaries of the period. They catalog tales of bootlegging, literary teas, shifting cliques of artists and writers, cabaret slumming, sexual and social peccadilloes, and a seemingly endless sequence of parties."--BOOK JACKET

The prettiest girls in Euphoria, Kansas : a novel by Bruce Kellner( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a midwestern farm in the last century, a boy is forced to come of age in a colorful family of dysfunctional women, scarred by the unfulfilled dreams of his alcoholic mother, his strange spinster aunts, his malevolent nieces, and especially "the prettiest girls in Euphoria, Kansas," his five unforgettable sisters. The hapless lives of frigid Emily, beautiful Louella, the competitive but dim twins Verda and Opal, and baleful Alice (also the lives of the losers they marry or don't) range from hilarious to heartbreaking. Inevitably, these women - equally appealing and appalling - dominate their much younger "Brother," an identity he can only escape by fleeing from them. Now, as a man in late middle-age, Brother must return to the town he escaped long before, in an attempt to cope with the shards of memory that have always haunted him
