Trans Canada Highway: Vancouver to Kamloops Through Historic Fraser and Thompson River Canyons - Livres de poche

1994, ISBN: 9780919214767

Edition reliée, ID: 330790578

New York, NY Farrar, Straus And Giroux, 1994. Hardcover First Edition, so stated. First Edition, so stated. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. Book shows a small bump at the bottom edge of the rear panel; else flawless; binding square and secure; text clean. DJ shows only mild rubbing; else flawless; price unclipped. Overall, very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 181pp. Full dark red cloth over boards, black lettering to spine, color plates. Hardback with DJ. McPhee is a Pulitzer Prize winner who in the past has specialized in geology but really can write anything that has real people in real situations (e.g., Giving Good Weight and Looking for a Ship). In this book a chance encounter with a truly eccentric man on a train leads to a story about -- an unparalleled rescue from the Soviet Union -- not of Jews, -- not of intellectuals, -- not of political dissidents or of oppressed minorities, but of the canvases of dissident artists. The leading character is Norton Townshend Dodge. He is so well detailed by McPhee and his on words, and so far off the bubble from a boring American standard, that he must surely be a bit self-aware and self-inventing. Mysterious money (basically the story is that the family knew Benjamin Graham and paid attention to him), academic economic curiosity coupled with an interest in art, a way of blundering around that worked in the U.S.S.R for no apparent reason, too many friends and acquaintances that were in the CIA, and a strange moldering estate in America that housed the only significant collection of Soviet dissident art in the world - what's not to like? The portrayal of the Russian artists is less compelling, either because McPhee had less contact and a looser type of relationship with the artists after the fact, or because these artists are largely lost without the suppressing force of authority to define their art and ideas. There are some lovely sections that show fear, jealousy (beating up a rival lover and throwing her papers into the lions' den of the Moscow zoo), alcoholism, the need to hide and the need to show. Others' opinion of Dodge is both amusing and makes him more multi-dimensional. In the end, Dodge was one of the few forms of subsidization and patronage that kept a select, but large, number of Soviet artists alive and in vodka. The lovely color plates of select Dodge paintings show a bewildering number of styles and a vibrant culture of hidden art. Perhaps creativity does feed off crisis and suppression., Farrar, Straus And Giroux, 1994., Surrey, British Columbia, Canada: Heritage House Pub Co Ltd. Very good green color pictorial trade paperback. Light wear, creasing. (1986), 8vo, [7], 8-126pp. Not in Hale Barman B.C. Local History Bibliography. "Most of the historical background in this book was researched by author broadcaster C. P. Lyons and appeared in his popular Milestones on the Mighty Fraser...Did the Nicomen River trigger the Fraser River gold rush?...Coarse gold in the form of a 3-ounce (85 gram) nugget, was found here in the 1850s by an Indian kneeling to drink..." .
