Wilsey, Sean:
Oh the Glory of It All - Taschenbuch

2005, ISBN: 9780143036913

ID: 255468921

Penguin Books, 2005 Very-good+, clean copy. NO remainder marks or clippings. 484 pages. Illustrated with photos. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Tight spine, clean pages. Pages show slight tanning. Synopsis Sean's blond-bombshell mother regularly entertains Black Panthers and movie stars in the family's marble and glass penthouse. His enigmatic father uses a jet helicopter to drop Sean off at the video arcade. The three live happily together "eight-hundred feet in the air above San Francisco; in an apartment at the top of a building at the top of a hill: full of light, full of voices, full of windows, full of water and bridges and hills." But when his father divorces his mother and marries her best friend, Sean's life blows apart. His memoir shows us how he survived, spinning out a "deliriously searing and convincing" portrait of a wicked stepmother (The New York Times Book Review), a meeting with the pope, sexual awakening, and a tour of "the planet's most interesting reform schools" (Details). BACKCOVER: "A memoir that announces the debut of a remarkably gifted, daring and, yes, very funny, writer." Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "The cliché 'truth is stranger than fiction' may well have been coined to describe Sean Wilsey's wild, wise, and whip-smart memoir." Elle "[An] irreverent and remarkably candid memoir about growing up in wealthy eighties San Francisco . . . rollicking, ruthless . . . ultimately generous-hearted." Vogue "A vivid mix of brio, self-awareness and sophistication . . . writing well is indeed the best revenge." The New York Times Book Review The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani It's a sprawling kitchen sink of a memoir, stuffed to the gills with seemingly everything the author can remember about his youth and in dire need of some industrial-strength editing, but at the same time, an epic performance: by turns heartfelt, absurd, self-indulgent, self-abasing, silly and genuinely moving. A memoir that manages to encompass riffs about the joys of skateboarding, the woes of high society, the miseries of boarding school and the perils of new money and new age therapies with equal aplomb, a memoir that can make the reader remember - no, re-experience - what it was like to be a wretched child and even more wretched teenager with ridiculous, Proustian ease. Biography Sean Wilsey's writing has appeared in the New Yorker, the London Review of Books, the Los Angeles Times, and McSweeney's quarterly, where he is the editor at large. . Trade Paperback. Very Good +. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Penguin Books, 2005

[EAN: 9780143036913], Neubuch, [PU: Penguin Books], SEAN WILSEY,MEMOIRS,RICH AND FAMOUS,STATE LOCAL, Biography & Autobiography|General, Biography & Autobiography|Personal Memoirs, Family & Relationships|Divorce, Paperback. 496 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.4in. x 1.1in.In the beginning we were happy. And we were always excessive. So in the beginning we were happy to excess. With these opening lines Sean Wilsey takes us on an exhilarating tour of life in the strangest, wealthiest, and most grandiose of families. Seans blond-bombshell mother (one of the thinly veiled characters in Armistead Maupins bestselling Tales of the City) is a 1980s society-page staple, regularly entertaining Black Panthers and movie stars in her marble and glass penthouse, eight hundred feet in the air above San Francisco; an apartment at the top of a building at the top of a hill: full of light, full of voices, full of windows full of water and bridges and hills. His enigmatic father uses a jet helicopter to drop Sean off at the video arcade and lectures his son on proper hygiene in public restrooms, You should wash your hands first, before you use the urinal. Not after. Your penis isnt dirty. But your hands are. When Sean, the kind of child who sings songs to sick flowers, turns nine years old, his father divorces his mother and marries her best friend. Seans life blows apart. His mother first invites him to commit suicide with her, then has a vision of salvation that requires packing her Louis Vuitton luggage and traveling the globe, a retinue of multiracial children in tow. Her goal: peace on earth (and a Nobel Prize). Sean meets Indira Gandhi, Helmut Kohl, Menachem Begin, and the pope, hoping each one might come back to San Francisco and persuade his father to rejoin the family. Instead, Sean is pushed out of San Francisco and sent spiraling through five high schools, till he finally lands at an unorthodox reform school cum therapeutic community, in Italy. With its multiplicity of settings and kaleidoscopic mix of preoccupations-sex, Russia, jet helicopters, seismic upheaval, boarding schools, Middle Earth, skinheads, home improvement, suicide, skateboarding, Sovietology, public transportation, massage, Christian fundamentalism, dogs, Texas, global thermonuclear war, truth, evil, masturbation, hope, Bethlehem, CT, eventual salvation (abridged list)Oh the Glory of It All is memoir as bildungsroman as explosion.
