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

30 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

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"--Amazon.com

20 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stanley Kubric's celebrated black comedy classic about and 'accidental' nuclear attack was nominated for four 1964 Academy Awards. Created during a time when the paranoia of the Cold War was at its peak, the film still seems surpisingly relevant today. Convinced the Commies are polluting America's "precious bodily fluids," a crazed General (Sterling Hayden) orders a surprise nuclear air strike on the USSR. His aide Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers) furiously attempts to figure out a recall code to stop the bombing. Meanwhile, the U.S. President (Sellers again) gets on the hot line to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the impending attack is a silly mistake, while the President's advisor (and ex-Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) confirms the existence of the dreaded Doomsday Machine -- a new secret Soviet retaliatory device guaranteed to end the human race once and for all!"--Estuche
