"In this, Hilary Masters third story collection, things are not usually what they seem. In the title story a man attending a conference visits the neighborhood where he grew up and finds it desolate, menacing, despite its familiarity. In "The Italian Grammar," the winner of a Balch Prize, a mid-life academic, living on the edge of the New York literati, recognizes his own stunted ambitions in a moment of quiet, devastating understanding. And in "The Catch" a man on holiday in Ireland to get in touch with his roots witnesses an accidental drowning and is released from his own suffocating past."--Jacket

'Memoir' is far too thin a term to contain Hilary Masters's Last Stands. It is a journey: from 1880 to the present, from Custer to Mencken, from Kansas City to Arlington national Cemetery. Hilary Masters, a gifted and seasoned novelist, has composed an unforgettable portrait of his family, a patchwork quilt cut from memory and stitched with his own understanding
Shadows on a wall : Juan O'Gorman and the mural in Pátzcuaro by Hilary Masters( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Novelist and essayist Hilary Masters recreates a moment in 1940s Pittsburgh when circumstances, ideology, and a passion for the arts collided to produce a masterpiece in another part of the world." "E. J. Kaufmann had transformed his family's department store into an art deco showcase with murals by Boardman Robinson and now sought to beautify the walls of the YM & WHA of which he was the president. Through his son E.J. Kaufmann, jr (the son preferred the lowercase usage), he met Juan O'Gorman, a rising star in the Mexican pantheon of muralists dominated by Diego Rivera, O'Gorman's friend and mentor." "O'Gorman and his American wife spent nearly six months in Pittsburgh at Kaufmann's invitation while the artist researched the city's history and made elaborate cartoons for the dozen panels of the proposed mural. Like Rivera, O'Gorman was an ardent Marxist whose views of society were radically different from those of his host, not to mention the giants of Pittsburgh's industrial empire-Carnegie, Frick, and Mellon. The murals were never painted, but why did Kaufmann commission O'Gorman in the first place? Was it only a misunderstanding?" "In the discursive manner for which his fiction and essays are noted, Masters pulls together the skeins of world events, the politics of art patronage, and the eccentric personalities and cruel histories of the period into a pattern that also includes the figures of O'Gorman and his wife Helen, and Kaufmann, his wife Liliane, and their son. Masters traces the story through its many twists and turns to its surprising ending: E.J. Kaufmann's failure to put beautiful pictures on the walls of the Y in Pittsburgh resulted in Juan O'Gorman's creation of a twentieth-century masterpiece on a wall in the town of Patzcuaro, Mexico."--Jacket
