Flannery : a life of Flannery O'Connor by Brad Gooch( Book )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 2,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a biography of American novelist, short-story writer and essayist Flannery O'Connor (1926-1964), who despite the chronic disease that eventually confined her to her mother's farm in Georgia, managed to fundamentally change the landscape of American literature with her fierce, sometimes comic novels and stories. The author brings to life O'Connor's significant friendships -- with Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, Walker Percy, and James Dickey among others -- and her deeply felt convictions, as expressed in her communications with Thomas Merton, Elizabeth Bishop, and Betty Hester. O'Connor was a Southern writer who often wrote in a Southern Gothic style and relied heavily on regional settings and grotesque characters. O'Connor's writing also reflected her own Roman Catholic faith, and frequently examined questions of morality and ethics
City poet : the life and times of Frank O'Hara by Brad Gooch( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here are the openings at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery or at the Museum of Modern Art, where O'Hara brilliantly curated one-man shows of the work of Robert Motherwell, David Smith, and Franz Kline. And, here, above all, is the genesis of his poems - often dashed off in a crowded banquette at the Cedar bar - poems whose special quality Allen Ginsberg has perfectly expressed: "He taught me to really see New York for the first tinge. It was like having Catullus change your view of the Forum in Rome."
Scary kisses by Brad Gooch( Book )
7 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The East Village in the early eighties - Andy Warhol, DBGBs, Max's Kansas City, 'flower shops' on St. Mark's Place, carnival-barking madmen in Tompkins Square Park - what's a boy like Todd doing in a place like this? He's working the front desk nine-to-five at an uptown travel agency and drifting through a youthfully close relationship with his girlfriend Lucy - a relationship that hasn't yet found its dark side, but it's about to. Todd just doesn't belong here; for one thing, he's just too damn good looking. When a modeling scout's business card is slipped into Todd's hand, a door is opened to a new world: a bazaar of celebrity, money, drugs, bisexuality, and old-school indulgence - he is welcomed to the eighties. Todd and Lucy's tour through this underworld is guided by Frank, a cynical model with an omnivorous appetite, whose presence insinuates itself into all aspecs of their lives, breaking their bond with every inhibition, just as he threatens to break their bond with each other and to the selves they thought they knew."--P. [4] of cover
The golden age of promiscuity by Brad Gooch( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The novel brings to life a night world that no longer exists, a subterranean New York of drugs, dim lights, and strange bare rooms where medieval-seeming acts are performed and intimacy is anonymous. Energized, even hypnotized, by this scene, yet remaining detached, Devlin moves deliberately toward his goal - to be a famous filmmaker in the tradition of Warhol - and we watch him becoming, in the process, the ultimate voyeur, seeing and experiencing his own life through his camera

Dating the Greek gods : empowering spiritual messages on sex and love, creativity and wisdom by Brad Gooch( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the author of the highly successful and influential Finding the Boyfriend Within comes an inspirational guide for gay men seeking spiritual fulfillment. When Brad Gooch began promoting his self-help book Finding the Boyfriend Within, the first of its kind directed toward a gay readership, he was overwhelmed by the response it generated. Thousands of gay men embraced the book's message of looking into themselves to find comfort and purpose in life. So enthusiastic was the response to the book that Gooch began conducting workshops and, in the process, conceived Dating the Greek Gods as both a follow-up and a companion to the earlier book -- a self-help book designed as a sort of "advanced class" for readers of Finding the Boyfriend Within. Because of the conflicted reaction many gay men have to any discussion of religious spirituality, Gooch hit upon the idea of drawing on an older spiritual base -- that of Ancient Greece -- for examining and explaining his approach to achieving a higher understanding of self through spirituality. The stories of the Greek gods have inspired human consciousness for more than thirty centuries, the outgrowth of a society in which homosexuality was an accepted aspect of human behavior. Dating the Greek Gods explores these stories as well as the dominant characteristics of those Greek deities, tying the spirituality of being a gay male to the inner patterns -- or archetypes -- that shape men's personalities and personal relationships. Gooch organizes the book into a series of meditations and personal exercises shaped around the characters, stories, and dominant traits of the deities. For example, in chapter one, Apollo addresses wisdom; chapter two concerns Dionysus and deals with sexuality and disco nights; chapter three is about Hermes and concerns communication, and so on, from Hephaestos and Eros (creativity and romance) to Zeus (independence and freedom). Gooch delves into these enduring archetypes to show men how, by understanding the philosophy behind these gods, they can come to better understand themselves and, in the process, enrich their lives. Unique in its approach and totally accessible in its realization, Dating the Greek Gods is an enlightened and literary self-help book that encourages readers to turn to their own inner oracle -- the inner voice that prompted them to "come out" in the first place -- and in the process to revitalize themselves through viewing the world's spiritual traditions in a more inclusive and caring fashion
