Description

Combining high drama with surreal hilarity and presenting a remarkably prescient view of the future of television, Golk ranks with Nathanael West's The Day of the Locust as one of the finest novels ever written about the American entertainment industry. As popular as You’re On Camera has become, he knows the show is capable of making a greater, more transformative impact. It is midcentury America, the golden age of television, and a man named Golk is wreaking havoc with the medium.

In 1985, he received the Medal of Merit for the Novel from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. To generalize from the particulars of Hondorp’s singularity—to make of him a type or an everyman—is probably not Stern’s intention, at least not in such bald terms. First UK edition first impression in VG condition, there is toning to the front endpage and an erased pencil mark, no other internal markings, pages clean, binding firm, the jacket has wear to folds and extremities along with some other wear, now in removable protective sleeve, please see pics, PayPal accepted, any questions please get in touch.Golk’s ambitions are to take his show to heights of revelation, where he uncovers the seedier workings of the powerful, the movers and shakers who control people’s lives, to bring them down to size and make them seem no more than the common man, if not worse. Golk manipulates the high and mighty, the lowdown and dirty, and the outrageous weird; all are within the compass of Richard Stern in this early novel, a comedy with as many inspired maneuvers as its rambunctious protagonist has for taking the measure of a profligate world. For the veterans among your Golk ancestors, military collections provide insights into where and when they served, and even physical descriptions.

Within census records, you can often find information like name of household members, ages, birthplaces, residences, and occupations. Hondorp and Hendricks cavalierly decide to marry after they have successfully scaled back the show to the network’s satisfaction. Its protagonist is equally clueless, although he learns, and he is equally taken under the wing of a strange guy who tries to be mythic and always the smartest guy in the room.Golk is a self-made man, born with the surname Pomeroy in Rhode Island, but when he gravitated to New York after the second world war, he remade himself and devised his métier. Golk is a rich and marvelously detailed novel by a man with a cultivated intelligence; it is also the first really good book I have read about television.
