Sea battles on dry land : essays by Harold Brodkey( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sea Battles on Dry Land gathers the best of Harold Brodkey's essays into a single volume. His "One of the Rules of Foppishness" explains, with deadpan precision, just what men and women are trying to communicate to each other by the way they dress. The previously unpublished "Notes on American Fascism" eerily anticipates the violence of latter-day militia groups. And Brodkey's profile of Frank O'Hara's Harvard years stands as one of the most eloquent portraits of a legendary American writer."--Jacket

In First Love and Other Sorrows, the young Brodkey chronicles the world of the educated and affluent middle class of the 1950s, at leisure and in love.

This edition includes three never-before-collected stories, to complete an anthology of rare tenderness, humor, and haunting insight
This wild darkness : the story of my death by Harold Brodkey( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Japanese and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One day in the spring of 1993, author Harold Brodkey checked into a Manhattan emergency room unable to move and scarcely able to breathe. When he was later diagnosed with the AIDS virus, Brodkey greeted the devastating - and completely unexpected - news with an odd lightheartedness, a perverse fascination with his passage from the ranks of the living to the fraternity of the dying. As a novelist, he refused the fate that had been assigned to him: his acute editorial sensibility told him that he had been badly miscast as a condemned man. In This Wild Darkness, Brodkey, who died on January 26, 1996, examines his predicament with the same irony and lucidity he brought to his acclaimed fiction. Part journal, part memoir, part essay, this book offers a frank and profound exploration of Brodkey's sexuality, his relationships, and the slow, withering advance of his disease. A stirring self-portrait from one of our greatest men of letters, This Wild Darkness lends a fresh and heroic perspective to the subject of AIDS, death, and love

Un uomo, uno scrittore, scopre nel 1993, con sorpresa (le sue sporadiche avventure omosessuali risalivano agli anni Sessanta e Settanta, e non era più a rischio dal 1977), di avere l'Aids e di essere condannato a morte. Quest'uomo è Harold Brodkey, uno dei più eccelsi prosatori contemporanei, e la <<storia...della sua morte>> diventa non tanto un diario di fatti (i progressi della malattia, il decadimento fisico), ma il resoconto di due anni di continuo stato di grazia creativo, due anni di straordinaria lucidità, due anni di <<vita vera>> concessi proprio dall'imminenza della fine. Il risultato è un'opera asciutta e minutamente cesellata, un libro estremo, un classico contemporaneo capace di toccare le profondità abissali di un racconto come La morte di Ivan ll'ic di Tolstoj. È l'indimenticabile testimonianza di un uomo che affronta la morte a occhi aperti e riflette sul toccante rapporto che lo lega alla moglie amatissima, su un'ultima vacanza a Venezia, sulle circostanze della vita quotidiana; ma soprattutto si serve dell'esperienza del morire per raggiungere con la sua scrittura la sincerità assoluta, la chiarezza definitiva, perfino - ed è l'ultimo paradosso - un'assurda felicità.
