    [Memoirs of Hecate County] E–pub ☆ Edmund Wilson This is a fairly enjoyable interesting read The book consists of a series of six inter related stories having to do with the goings on in the life of the central character First published in 1946 it is one of those rather intriguing works that deal with literature art politics and sexual s in a manner where all of these things influence each other This is a book where characters talk about Marxism and the prole

I had been looking forward to reading this book mostly because Frederick Exley had sung its praises in his writing and because it is Wilson s favorite among his works And his works are no minor achievement including among them some truly brilliant essays and nonfiction He was perhaps the leading American critic of his time and a well known personality So given that I have to see this mixed bag of fiction and possibly fictionalized memoir as something of a disappointmentThis book contains 5 short stories some of them fairly long ones and a short novel The stories wander thru a range of situations and are uite different from one another There are a few threads that keep them together although they don t really seem to be enough There is the author s cool refined intelligent voice which hints at hidden reserves of passion and humor There is his tendency at least from today s perspective to go on long windedly after the point has been made There is also the setting among the well to do of a fictional upstate New York region But there is so much variation here that the gambit seems unnecessaryThe Man Who Shot Snapping Turtles is funny and entertaining and had me wondering if this book was going to be full of this kind of enjoyable stuff but this was not to be The most interesting story in the bunch followed Ellen Terhune about a man who goes to visit a female friend and each time he visits her house the clock has moved back another decade and that decade s family situation is then presented to him This was a terrific literary Twilight Zonesue piece and made me look forward to in this vein but this too was not forthcoming Glimpses of Wilbur Flick is a cross between social criticism and absurd humor about a rich man whose useless life becomes ever strange until he becomes an alcoholic magician The Milhollands and Their Damned Soul seems focused on gossip and criticism about the publishing world and could be of great interest to those who are fascinated with the publishing business of the 1930s and 1940s Mr And Mrs at Home is another surreal piece and at times it is uite mysterious But it does not have the benefit of a coherent plot and the divergences into French and other languages had me skipping pages to get to the endThe novella is entitled The Princess with the Golden Hair Despite its length it somehow reads like a very long short story and does not really develop into a novelistic work This concerns a well heeled but callow 30ish intellectual who becomes involved with two women One the beauty of the title is the wife of a friend and the protagonist pursues her with great fervency and slyness for a long and seemingly hopeless period He also becomes involved with a lower class part Ukrainian girl The narrator marvels at the exotic horrors of her rough and tumble life and tries to help her and love her as much as he can but the boundaries of class and taste seem to prohibit him from really going for herIn summary this is a grab bag of pieces that does contain some interesting writing but did not hold my interest throughout
