Description


"I am a distinguished outcast in American letters - a renegade and recalcitrant, hated and feared by all cliques and snoring phantom celebrities, from ultra-radical to ultra-conservative - an isolated wanderer in the realm of intellect and lithely fantastic emotion, hemmed in by gnawing hostilities and blandly simulating venoms . . ."For the first time ever in print, a collection of Maxwell Bodenheim's lost essays, renegade verse, novels, and letters, some never before published. Maxwell Bodenheim (1892-1954) was the King of Greenwich Village, the "Last Bohemian" and Ghost of the Jazz Age who stormed the tabloids of the Roaring Twenties with his numerous escapades. What has never before been detailed is the vast and varied writings that Bodenheim wrote from 1913 until shortly before his tragic death. Culled from obscure literary periodicals, newspapers and library archives, this curated collection will pave the way toward a new assessment of this misunderstood poet and novelist.
