9780374534585: Forty-One False Starts: Essays on Artists and Writers

Janet Malcolm's In the Freud Archives and The Journalist and the Murderer, as well as her biographies of Sylvia Plath and Gertrude Stein, are canonical in the realm of nonfiction - as is the title essay of this collection, with its forty-one "false starts," or serial attempts to capture the essence of the painter David Salle, which become a dazzling portrait of an artist. "She is among the most intellectually provocative of authors," writes David Lehman in The Boston Globe, "able to turn epiphanies of perception into explosions of insight." Forty-one False Starts brings together for the first time essays published over the course of several decades (many from The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books) that reflect Malcolm's preoccupation with artists and their work. Her subjects are painters, photographers, writers, and critics. She explores the "dominating passion" of Bloomsbury to create things visual and literary, the "passionate collaborations" behind Edward Weston's nudes, and the psyche of the German photographer Thomas Struth. She delves beneath the "onyx surface" of Edith Wharton's fiction, appreciates the black comedy of the Gossip Girl novels, and confronts the false starts of her own autobiography. As Ian Frazier writes in the introduction, "Over and over Malcolm has demonstrated that an article in a magazine-something we see every day-can rise to the highest level of literature."

Descrizione libro Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 320 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.3in. x 0.9in.A National Book Critics Circle Finalist for CriticismA deeply Malcolmian volume on painters, photographers, writers, and critics. Janet Malcolms In the Freud Archives and The Journalist and the Murderer, as well as her books about Sylvia Plath and Gertrude Stein, are canonical in the realm of nonfictionas is the title essay of this collection, with its forty-one false starts, or serial attempts to capture the essence of the painter David Salle, which becomes a dazzling portrait of an artist. Malcolm is among the most intellectually provocative of authors, writes David Lehman in The Boston Globe, able to turn epiphanies of perception into explosions of insight. Here, in Forty-one False Starts, Malcolm brings together essays published over the course of several decades (largely in The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books) that reflect her preoccupation with artists and their work. Her subjects are painters, photographers, writers, and critics. She explores Bloomsburys obsessive desire to create things visual and literary; the passionate collaborations behind Edward Westons nudes; and the character of the German art photographer Thomas Struth, who is haunted by the Nazi past, yet whose photographs have a lightness of spirit. In The Woman Who Hated Women, Malcolm delves beneath the onyx surface of Edith Whartons fiction, while in Advanced Placement she relishes the black comedy of the Gossip Girl novels of Cecily von Zeigesar. In Salingers Cigarettes, Malcolm writes that the pettiness, vulgarity, banality, and vanity that few of us are free of, and thus can tolerate in others, are like ragweed for Salingers helplessly uncontaminated heroes and heroines. Over and over, as Ian Frazier writes in his introduction, she has demonstrated that nonfictiona book of reporting, an article in a magazine, something we see every daycan rise to the highest level of literature.
