Reviews - What do customers think about Equipment for Living: Literature, Moderns, Monsters, Popsters and Us?
one of the 20th century's best voices Dec 12, 2007
George Stade has been a professor of English at Columbia for forty years. He was there with Lionel Trilling, Edward Said, and all the rest of them and was a legend in his own right. (Students knew they could always smoke in his office, and a staff member kicked out by his girlfriend was known to have crashed there at least once.) He hung with Marianne Moore and George Plimpton and is a true-and-true New Yorker whose novels are also undiscovered gems. I urge you to check out his books, both these essays and the novels! Stade gives a wonderful view of 20th century literature and is such a pleasure to read.
