Description:

New York. 1979. Harper & Row. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 213 pages. February 1979. hardcover. Jacket design by Honi Werner. 0060109335. keywords: Literature America. inventory # 2263. FROM THE PUBLISHER - BLOOD AND GRITS is the ideal complement to Harry Crews’ memoir of hit first ten years, A CHILDHOOD: THE BIOGRAPHY OF A PLACE. Individually, these nonfiction pieces, most of which were first published in either Playboy or Esquire, appear to be about a wide variety of subjects - profiles of Charles Bronson and Robert Blake, encounters with a man who has spent his life mourning the lynching of an elephant and with some DELIVERANCE-type hillbillies while hiking through the Appalachians, life with a traveling carnival, or jaundiced looks at L. L. Bean and the people who travel in campers. Taken collectively, though, they tell us as much about Harry Crews the man as A CHILDHOOD tells us about Harry Crews the boy. For here is the tree toward which the twig was bent. The author who is sent to Valdez, Alaska, to write a story on the Alaska Pipeline and winds up being tattooed while passed out. Who gets beaten up in an alley in Pasadena, California, the day before interviewing a TV star. And who compassionately lets a mark off the hook while acting as a hustler for a rigged game of chance. What we come to realize is that, despite a national reputation as a novelist and a life teaching at a University, Harry Crews has in his heart always remained the boy from Bacon County and that no matter how far any of us may roam, all of us remain the products of our childhoods. What we also come to realize is that, as the commercial, nonfiction writing of an important American novelist, BLOOD AND GRITS offers a rich and rewarding reading experience. Bookseller Inventory #
