    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBFlaws and ApplauseFor all its flaws and they are both numerous and substantial The Deer Park is still one of my favourite novels of the 1950'sIt deals with two personal interests and obsessions radical Left wing politics in the United States from the 1930’s to the 1950’s including the House Un American Activities Committee and Hollywood the two of which coincided in the Hollywood Blacklist of 1947I should also mention that it deals with the relationship between the sexes in as explicit a way as literature was permitted in 1955 when the novel was first published even though it was rejected by just about every publisher in town because o

    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBI picked this book up when I asked Ms Lynch for American literature book suggestions and was instantly hooked when I read the blurb especially the phrase their uneasy flirtation with success and self extinction creating a legendary portrait of America's machinery of desire and how it linked back to the time when Mr Errico talked about The American Dream in class The thing that struck me the most about this book was how the human mind and actions react when living a lifestyle of an abundance of materialized pleasure and how when there is nothing left to dream and fantasize about in a person's world pain and suffering can actually come from trying to get meaning through a radical perception of love or trying too hard to live in other words For wha

    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBI read it a long time ago it worked reasonably enough as a novel but there were way too many moments in which I felt stormin' norman's sweaty heavy hands all over F Scott Fitzgerald's delicate and subversively limpid materialThis is coming off the sagging failure of Barbary Shore and Norm's trying to talk himself out of his gloom paranoia and wife shanking by trying to tell himself he can do Hollywood He can't Not really He gets the booze a little bit of the desert the sex as power as money as existential loneliness and risk thing but when they write another history of tinseltown he won't be one of the chroniclers or sages Fitzgerald on the other hand was pretty much exactly the camera eye you want Disillusioned but full of dreams middle class but pretending to be rich sexy but fading and not funny any THAT'S how you approach the American dream factory with one hand on your heart and the other on your shredded fading t

    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBIt's uite rare that I don't finish a book Usually once I start reading something I have a kind of compulsive urge to finish it no matter how bad or how dull Occasionally however there comes along a book that overpowers me with its banality and mediocrity a tome that forces me to set it aside and move on The Deer Park for me is one such book At the urging of a professor who is helping me with something I'm writing I sought out a copy and started to read it After all I thought it's only about 300 pages I'll finish it in no time Right Wrong The Deer Park is a sort of 1950s retelling of The Great Gatsby Our Nick Carraway type figure is replaced by Sergius O'Shaughnessy a former air force pilot who wins big at a casino and proceeds to blow his money by spending some time in a hotel in a thinly disguised Palm Springs Our Gatsby is Charles Eitel a wealthy screenwriter hopi

    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBThe Deer Park was probably a better read when it was first published in 1955 Its exploration of sex and violence and the way in which these two forces are at the heart of the American Dream is fearless It must have been very shocking back in 1955 before the world had been exposed to Burroughs and Selby and Lady Chatterley and Tropic of Cancer were still bannedThe book is plotless because it has to be Mailer creates a social milieu Desert D'Or which reminds one of Palm Springs and he deals with Hollywood types actors directors etc The characters sleep with each other commit acts of violence etc In Dante mode Mailer reveals the underside or Hell of the American Dream the Hollywood types that he assumes Americans aspire to be But the thing is Mailer creates an Inferno in which the characters are trapped an

    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBA real teeth gritter this may be the longest 375 page novel I have ever read And I am a Mailer fan The novel is initially somewhat interesting It is set in a thinly disguised Palm Springs that is populated with characters out of early fifties Hollywood These folks are coping with the fallout from House Un American Activities hearings most significantly a character who seems to be modeled on Elia Kazan; with having too much money and time and no real moral compass to guide them as they dispense with both; with the need to be in control of their publicity and image while indulging in the worst behaviorsI suppose my biggest problem among many is that the characters never become interesting This despite freuently hopping from one bed to another or engaging the services of a drunken high end pimp or selling out their integrit

    PaperbackÛ The Deer Park PDF Ú The DeerEpub deer kindle, park ebok, The Deer book, The Deer Park ePUBWhat a surprise Hollywood is a cesspit of the compromised and the corrupt Except that this was both known and part of American mythos sine at least the 1921 and the Fatty Arbuckle murder scandal not to mention the notoriety of Charlie Chaplin and Errol Flynn So in Deer Park The once and future great Norman Mailer uses the tell all expose to give us an almost literary take on the Tinseltown land Lotus Eaters Not intended for the younger children If it helps pretty boring for those old enoughI started this book with the sense I was in the hands of a superior story teller Then I was thinking that Mailer was the top of a generation of storytellers all doing some version of this
