Mailer : a biography by Mary V Dearborn( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Norman Mailer is "our chronicler, our critic, our designated male chauvinist, our court jester, our devil's advocate, the thorn in our collective side," writes Mary V. Dearborn. Undeniably one of the most controversial figures of the past half-century, Mailer has also been one of the most influential. Twice a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, once a candidate for mayor of New York City, a best-selling author at age twenty-three with The Naked and the Dead, a founder of the Village Voice, he has both made the news and commented on it with an originality that has permanently altered America's literary landscape."--BOOK JACKET. "Inevitably, Mailer's personal life has been as volcanic as the issues he has confronted. Dearborn had unprecedented access to Mailer's friends, relations, and antagonists, who provided key insights to fill in the familiar outlines of the Mailer myth - the brawls and arrests, the wives and mistresses, the brilliant successes and notorious failures."--BOOK JACKET. "As the biographer of both Henry Miller (one of Mailer's heroes) and the radical journalist Louise Bryant, Dearborn is uniquely sensitive to Mailer's best and worst sides."--Jacket

Mistress of modernism : the life of Peggy Guggenheim by Mary V Dearborn( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Dutch and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peggy Guggenheim emerges in Mistress of Modernism as the ultimate self-invented woman, a cultural mover and shaker who broke away from her poor-little-rich-girl origins to shape a life for herself as the enfant terrible of the art world. Peggy's visionary Art of This Century gallery in New York, which brought together the European surrealist artists with the American abstract expressionists, was an epoch-making "happening" at the center of its time." "Dearborn's access to the Guggenheim family, friends, and papers contributes rich insight into Peggy's traumatic childhood in German-Jewish "Our Crowd" New York, her self-education in the ways of art and artists, her caustic battles with other art-collecting Guggenheims, and her legendary sexual appetites: her lovers included Max Ernst, Samuel Beckett, and Marcel Duchamp, to name a mere few. Here too is a portrait of Peggy's last years as l'ultima dogaressa - the last duchess - in her palazzo in Venice, where her collection still draws thousands of visitors every year."--Jacket

5 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1930 Henry Miller moved from New York to Paris, leaving behind-at least temporarily-his tempestuous marriage to June Smith and a novel that had sprung from his anguish over her love affair with a mysterious woman named Jean Kronski. Begun in 1927, Crazy Cock is the story of Tony Bring, a struggling writer whose bourgeois inclinations collide with the disordered bohemianism of his much-beloved wife, Hildred, particularly when her lover, Vanya, comes to live with them in their already cramped Greenwich Village apartment. In a world swirling with violence, sex, and passion, the three struggle with their desires, inching ever nearer to insanity, each unable to break away from this dangerous and consuming love triangle

Uncovered along with Crazy Cock in 1988 by Miller biographer Mary V. Dearborn, Moloch emerged from the misery of Miller's years at Western Union and from the squalor of his first marriage. Set in the rapidly changing New York City of the early twenties, its hero is the rough-and-tumble Dion Moloch, a man filled with anger and despair. Trapped in a demeaning job, oppressed by an acrimonious home life, Moloch escapes to the streets only to be assaulted by a world he despises even more'a Brooklyn transformed into a shrill medley of ethnic sights, sounds, and smells. The antagonized Moloch strikes out blindly at everything he hates, battling against a world whose hostility threatens to overwhelm and destroy him
