Welcome to Oakland : a novel by Eric Miles Williamson( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and French and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sheer energy and passion and intensity, the linguistic virtuosity of Eric Miles Williamson's latest novel, Welcome to Oakland, will leave readers breathless. The vigor and uncensored redneck honesty of T-Bird Murphy's blue-collar voice will at turns delight, offend, amuse and enrage readers as T-Bird gives us what we're not supposed to hear: the groans, gritos and war-whoops of men when they're not behaving like gentlemen, when they're out of sight and earshot, when they're wrapped around their drinks at Dick's Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge or your local workingman's watering hole. In Welcome to Oakland, the T-Bird Murphy of Williamson's internationally acclaimed novel, East Bay Grease, is now a man. He's been divorced twice, and he finds himself hiding out in a garage in rural Missouri for a reason we're never told, confused and stunned, shell-shocked by the hand life has dealt him. He opens his story, "I'm always happiest when I live in a dump, and I've lived in some serious shitholes," but it's difficult to believe him. What unfolds is the story of a working man who tries his hardest to escape the hell of the Oakland ghetto, who finds honor in squalor, kinship among the broken divorcées of Dick's Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge, dignity and beauty at the garbage dumps where he sleeps in the cab of the scow he drives for a living

Canon fodder: Jack London and the conflicting aesthetics of a poor boy done good by Eric Miles Williamson( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canon Fodder: Jack London and the Aesthetics of a Poor Boy Done Good examines Jack London's essays, short stories, and novels with the intent of illuminating the root causes of London's contradictory social views, trying to explain that the views are not as contradictory as they might seem. During the course of this examination, London's aesthetic principles are delineated and shown to be as seemingly contradictory as his social views, wavering between the aesthetics of what we acknowledge as the traditional literary canon and the aesthetics of hack writers who write only to make money through the sales of commercial work. The didacticism of London's work, though seen as a fault, is argued to be integral to its position as literature. Jack London resolves his contradictory social and aesthetic philosophies in a handful of short stories and in his masterpieces, The Call of the Wild and White Fang. Works examined en route to these conclusions include The War of the Classes, Revolution and Other Essays, The Complete Short Stories of Jack London, The People of the Abyss, The Iron Heel, and Before Adam
