FRAUD Essays with Illustrations by the Author - Taschenbuch

2001, ISBN: 9780767906319

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 13070059

Viking, New York: 1968. Softcover. Good condition. In eight brilliantly reasoned essays, Trilling examines from various perspectives the situation of the individual who stands in an adversary relation to the general culture, who insists on asking himself the great modern question, "Is if true? Is it true for me?" rather than the less exacting, "Is it true for us?, Viking, New York: 1968, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York and London: 1979. Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition. Includes: A Novel of the Thirties; James Joyce in His Letters; What is Criticism?; Mind in the Modern World; Art, Will, and Necessity; Aggression and Utopia; The Uncertain Future of the Humanistic Educational Ideal, The Freud/Jung Letters, Whittaker Chambers' Journey, Why We Read Jane Austen; and Appendix: Some Notes for an Autobiographical Lecture. ISBN: 015148421X., Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York and London: 1979, NY: Broadway Books. Very Good-. c. 2001. First Paperback Edition. Paperback; First Printing. 0767906314 . Paper Covers. Very minor wear on the clean, sound binding. Contents are clean and unworn with minor age-yellowing of the margins. ; First Printing of the First Paperback Edition. 8" Tall, 228pp. PAPER COVERS. Red Cover is considerably lighter than posterboard. HUMOR. . "A hilarious collection that single-handedly raises self-deprecation to an art form. Whether impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window during the holidays, climbing an icy mountain in cheap loafers, or learning primitive survival skills in the wilds of New Jersey, Rakoff clearly demonstrates how he doesn't belong - nor does he try to. In his debut collection of essays, Rakoff uses his razor-sharp wit and snarky humor to deliver a barrage of damaging blows that, more often than not, land squarely on his own jaw - hilariously satirizing the writer, not the subject. Joining the wry and heartfelt, FRAUD offers an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously. " Illustrations by Rakoff (with the appearance of block prints) head each chapter. ., Broadway Books

Fraud: Essays - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 0767906314

Let's get this out of the way: David Rakoff is not David Sedaris. When you hear him being incredibly smart and funny on This American Life, you invariably think, "Oh, it's David Sedaris." But if you listen closely, you can tell the difference. Rakoff, while no less witty or nasal, is a little more disappointed. In his first collection--a series of pieces for public radio and for various magazines--he positively revels in his world-weariness. Whether he's investigating the Loch Ness monster, attending a comedy festival in Aspen, Colorado, visiting a New Age retreat hosted by Steven Seagal, or just, you know, playing Freud in a department-store window at Christmastime, Rakoff tends to get comically depleted. Watching the comic Dan Castellaneta, for example, he writes, "It's a bad sign when I start counting the unused props on stage. Only two wigs, one stool, an easel, and a dropcloth to go. I begin to pray to an unfeeling God to please make Castellaneta multitask." In a piece where he attempts to climb a mountain (well... a very short hill), Rakoff immediately nips any Sierra Club fantasies in the bud: "I do not go outdoors. Not more than I have to. As far as I'm concerned, the whole point of living in New York City is indoors. You want greenery? Order the spinach." But in the end, what makes him such a terrific writer is that he's not only onto everyone else, he's onto himself. No wonder his visit to a kibbutz becomes the occasion for some sup criticism and theory,essays,essays and correspondence,history and criticism,humor,humor and entertainment,literature and fiction Humor & Entertainment, Anchor

From "This American Life" alum David Rakoff comes a hilarious collection that single-handedly raises self-deprecation to an art form. Whether impersonating Sigmund Freud in a department store window during the holidays, climbing an icy mountain in cheap loafers, or learning primitive survival skills in the wilds of New Jersey, Rakoff clearly demonstrates how he doesn't belong-nor does he try to. In his debut collection of essays, Rakoff uses his razor-sharp wit and snarky humor to deliver a barrage of damaging blows that, more often than not, land squarely on his own jaw-hilariously satirizing the writer, not the subject. Joining the wry and the heartfelt, "Fraud" offers an object lesson in not taking life, or ourselves, too seriously. Fraud: Essays Rakoff, David, Anchor Books

Rakoff, David

Titel:

Fraud: Essays

ISBN-Nummer:

9780767906319

Journalist, actor, and radio commentator Rakoff has gathered in his first book what can best be described as essays on contemporary culture.
