Rosina Ruth Park        NZ        1917-2010

 

Her novel

of the Sydney slums,

“The Harp in the South,”

shocked Australians

in the 1940s

but did not prevent her

from becoming

one of the country’s

most revered writers

Janine Pommy        USA        1942-2010

 

a poet and intimate

of the Beat generation luminaries

Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky

whose lifelong quest for transcendence

took her to San Francisco in the 1960s

and on a pilgrimage to neolithic

goddess-worship sites in the 1980s

George Maurice Hopkins        USA        1943-2010

 

writer whose 1970 novel

“Blueschild Baby”

was greeted

as an important exploration

of the black urban experience

in the United States

but who abruptly disappeared

from the literary scene

as drugs took over his life

F. Gwynplaine MacIntyre        UK / USA ?        1948-2010

 

F. GWYNPLAINE MacINTYRE

lived in two dimensions.

 

The F stood for Fergus.

 

That was how neighbors

in his working-class neighborhood

in deep Brooklyn knew him:

a bearish pariah holed up

in a fetid apartment

stuffed with a lifetime of newspapers,

books, belongings

and all sorts of trash,

who worked nights

as a printer in Manhattan

and ranted

about his horrid childhood.

 

 

The F also stood for Froggy.

 

That’s what fans

in the rabid science-fiction world

on the Internet called him:

a witty and eloquent man prone

to using obscure words

and coining new ones,

who published numerous books,

articles and short stories

to great acclaim

and spun fantastic tales

about his travels.

Dick Francis

by Tom Jenkins

 

Comment

Whip hand

After Dick Francis took a tumble

in the final seconds of the Grand National in 1956

he stopped racing and became a writer.

Now, after a six-year break, he's writing again.

Muriel Spark ( born Muriel Sarah Camberg)        UK        1918-2006

 

known for her finely polished,

darkly comic prose

and for the unforgettable

Miss Jean Brodie,

one of the funniest

and most sinister characters

in modern fiction

 

(...)

 

Her work,

unlocked from

her innermost memories

of her experiences

before and after

her conversion

to Roman Catholicism in 1954,

built a canon of short,

sometimes macabre,

sometimes humorous novels

that sought to pare away

the absurdities

of human behavior.

Hunter S. Thompson on Outlaws | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios

 

“I keep my mouth shut now.

I’ve turned into a professional coward.”

- Hunter S. Thompson in 1967

As told to Studs Terkel ( http://studsterkel.org )

Hear more from this rare interview:
http://blankonblank.org/hunter-thompson

 

In the 1960s,

Hunter S. Thompson spent more than a year

living and drinking with members of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle club,

riding up and down the California coast.

What he saw alongside this group of renegades on Harleys,

these hairy outlaws who rampaged

and faced charges of attempted murder, assault and battery,

and destruction of property along the way

--all of this became the heart of Thompson’s first book:

Hell’s Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga.

 

Shortly after the book came out,

Thompson sat down for a radio interview

with the one and only Studs Terkel.
