Red-dirt marijuana, and other tastes by Terry Southern( Book )

34 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An underground classic, Red-Dirt Marijuana is a brilliant collection of incisive, darkly comic, devastating stories and wide-ranging pieces by America & rsquo;s master satirist One of the great collections, the range found here is impressive: from new journalism to absurd parodies and theatrical sketches; from absurd short riffs to Southern & rsquo;s most classic and lyrical early works of fiction. & ldquo;Red-Dirt Marijuana, & rdquo; the insightful, funny, and moving story of the relationship between a white boy and a black man, is paired with the horrific knock-down, drag-out of & ldquo;Razor Fight. & rdquo; One of the most scandalous stories ever published, & ldquo;The Blood of a Wig, & rdquo; combines an insider & rsquo;s look at the & ldquo;Quality Lit & rdquo; biz, the drug underground of Greenwich Village, and a vision of necrophilia involving one of America & rsquo;s most sacred cows. There is an imaginary encounter between Freud and Kafka in & ldquo;Apartment to Exchange, & rdquo; a skewering of the liberal white man and his efforts to befriend a black jazz musician in & ldquo;You & rsquo;re Too Hip, Baby, & rdquo; an exploration of race relations, moonshine, and the baton-twirling subculture in the personal essay & ldquo;Twirling at Ole Miss & rdquo; (identified by Tom Wolfe as the first instance of & ldquo;New Journalism & rdquo;), and many more pieces with Southern & rsquo;s signature dark satire, unconventional storylines, and pitch-perfect dialogue. Red-Dirt Marijuana and Other Tastes is a wild, funny, and dazzlingly diverse trip through the American culture of the 1950s and 1960s. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s estate

"In Flash and Filigree, his first novel, he delivers yet another outrageously funny commentary on the dark side of our national life. Frederick Eichner, world-renowned dermatologist, is visited by the entrancingly irritating Mr. Felix Treevly, who comes to him as a patient and stays as an obsession. Mr. Treevly leads the doctor into a series of hilarious and increasingly weird situations, which, with the assistance of a drunken private detective, a mad judge, a car crash, and a hashish party, finally drive him to mayhem. A wild whirlwind of a novel, Flash and Filigree is a work of comic genius from one of the wittiest writers of our time"
