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

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 319 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 The previously unpublished "Notes on American Fascism" eerily anticipates the violence of latter-day militia groups.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

My Venice by Harold Brodkey( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harold Brodkey first visited Venice in 1960, and his love of the city - its churches and vaporetti, its capacity to bewilder and seduce - brought him back time and again to the shores of the Adriatic in search of fresh inspiration. Brodkey's Venice is a city marked by powerful contrasts: solemn, fatalistic religiosity alongside exuberant mercantile optimism; pride beside humility; the sacred next to the profane. Illustrated with photographs by the renowned Italian photographer Giuseppe Bruno, My Venice combines passages from several of Brodkey's greatest works with previously unpublished notes and essays."--BOOK JACKET
