A Postcard Memoir PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Postcard Memoir free pdf 'Sutin's ingeniously constructed memoir uses duotone reproductions of postcards - by turns nostalgic, quaint or exotic- as Rorschach blots to evoke his deepest memories and feelings. Here he writes about typical events - Little League, his discovery of sex, bar mitzvah, past loves - but imbues his reminiscences of adolescent insecurity with a rueful, forgiving wisdom. Between each image and the corresponding text, odd juxta- positions and eerie or hilarious disjunctions fly like sparks, amplifying Sutin's memories and puncturing his wild fantasies.'- Publishers Weekly
