[EAN: 9780679772941], [PU: Vintage], Fiction|Historical, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "It is precisely Wright's ability to capture the raw beauty and immediacy of an earlier America while reflecting on its moral contradictions the makesThe Amalgamation Polkasuch a great pleasure to read. [He is] a master who deserves a wide audience." --John Hammond,San Antonio Express-News "Endlessly beguiling [by] an extravagantly talented novelist. . . It offers something rare in historical novels . . . the vertiginous sensation of a tilt forward into the unknown. This, after all, is what history feels like to the people who live through it, the ones with no idea what will happen next and an uncertain grasp on who the good guys will turn out to be. It feels like the world as you know it, dissolving and re-forming into an unimaginable and unnavigable new configuration. It feels like now . . . For Wright, America, past and present, is Wonderland, a place of marvels and horrors from which not even the fortunate escape with their heads. " --Laura Miller, front page,New York Times Book Review "Yes, yes, there is a civil war, and there's a president to be assassinated. But that's not why you'll read on. It's the world itself, imagined and recognizable as never before, that will make you turn the page. The writing is so good that you forget you're reading about the past; you lean forward to see what remarkable turn will come next, what rich details will arise in a world that is grotesque, flame lit, driven by money and possession. The language is so generously arcane and richly evocative that it begins to feel, well, as if it might just be the future." --Tom Chiarella,Esquire "This dark and lyrical tale of madness and prophecy speaks uncannily from within its period, in the tradition of heartbroken humor which America's lapses of faith in its own promise have always evoked in the finest of our storytellers, among whom Stephen Wright here honorably takes his place." Thomas Pynchon "An omnivorous approach to the period [of] Bible-thumping abolitionists, fire-breathing secessionists, the Underground Railroad and a bitterly unamalgamated America reunited only after the deaths of 600,000 soldiers, North and South . . . There are shades of Hawthorne, Irving and Melville, little tonal shifts from chapter to chapter; [and in the] battle scenes, we feel as if we've stumbled across the infernal manuscripts of a long-lost literary talent, as if the scary ellipses ofThe Red Badge of Couragewere being filled in by a chronicler as ravenous for bodily data as Whitman." --Mark Rozzo,Los Angeles Times Book Review "Existentially astonishing . . . Quite simply an astonishing novel, brilliantly executed and beautifully written. Stephen Wright deserves to be famous and feted for it." --Diane Roberts,The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Summoning virtually every shade in the American canon (Melville to Cormac McCarthy, Twain to Pynchon) yet possessed of a rollicking, morbid tone all its own, Stephen Wright'sThe Amalgamation Polkadoes for the Civil War era what the author's previous books did for the late 20th century . . . Wright's acute attention to the shapes and sounds of words--and the resultant renewal of the familiar stuff of history--will bring a smile to your own lips as it sets your brain on fire." --Jason McBride,Village Voice "A grand and bizarre epic of the Civil War era [that] works brilliantly because Wright appears to have created this story not as a 21st-century author commenting on 19th-century values, but as someone living through, and struggling against, this moment in history. This view from deep inside . . . bestows profound rewards." --Carol Iaciofano,The Boston Globe "A work of high imagination, and we have never seen the time or its people portrayed quite like this." --Art Winslow,Chi

Born in 1844 in bucolic upstate New York, Liberty Fish is the son of fervent abolitionists as well as the grandson of Carolina slaveholders even more dedicated to their cause. Thus follows a childhood limned with fugitive slaves moving through hidden passageways in the house, and the inevitable distress that befalls his mother whenever letters arrive from her parents. In hopes of reconciling the familial disunion, Liberty escapes--first into the cauldron of war and then into a bedlam more disturbing still. In a vibrant display of literary achievement, Stephen Wright brings us a Civil War novel unlike any other. From the Trade Paperback edition. Fiction Fiction, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
