A volume of essays on "Sex/Suicide/Homosexuality/Sportswriting/Jews/Negroes/Jazz/Making It/Science Fiction/Genius/Onanism/Insanity/New York: The Literary Lower Depths"(as listed on front cover) by Seymour Krim (1922-1989), editor of one of the earliest anthologies on the writings of the Beat Generation (The Beats, 1960). This is the first softcover printing of the "New, Expanded Edition of an Underground Landmark"(from front cover) originally published in 1961. Many of these essays first appeared in various periodicals, including Commonweal, Partisan Review & the Village Voice. With a forward by Norman Mailer. An important collection by a contemporary Beat-counterculture chronicler. In good condition with only moderate rubbing, staining & creasing of front, back covers & spine; mild wear at edges & corners of same; area of chips & missing paper (as if slightly nibbled by a cat?) from upper right corner of front cover through about middle of right edge, short & hardly effecting image of Krim behind a cannon; very mild, slight wear, scratching & staining of text block edges. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves., E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1968, Paperback. New. Paperback. 183 pages. TARNISHED BRASS CURTAIN: A NOVEL OF VIETNAM SYNOPSISTarnished Brass Curtain: is a frame story, taking place during a single week in October, 1968, with flashback chapters from one week to six months. It opens in a Navy Public Affairs Office on the west coast. The admirals son, a helicopter pilot, has apparently gone underground rather than return to his unit in the Mekong Delta. The frame deals with how the command handles the PR crisis. The flashbacks show combat, discussions of conscience and loyalty, and how the lieutenant reached his decision. Two men are shown in transition: Fred Hetherington, the young lieutenant, who grows throughout the story, matures and goes from uncertainty to conviction; and Dan Levin, the older senior chief journalist in charge of the enlisted staff of the PAO, who goes from certainty to denial. The younger man is a product of generations of military tradition, son and grandson of flag officers. The older man, a career navyman, is an outsider in this military world; he is ambitious, Jewish, has intellectual pretensions and an almost fatal love for words and their meanings, without a full understanding of their consequences. The story begins in the Public Affairs office of the commander of the Pt. Cambiar, Calfifornia Navy Base. A call comes in from the local newspaper concerning a rumor that the commanders son, a navy combat helicoptaer pilot, has gone underground, rather than return to his base in the Mekong Delta after being home on leave for his mothers funeral. The command chief of staff not only wants to suppress the rumor, but actually fabricates a message implying that the pilot is on extended leave. The decision is also made not to inform the admiral, who is still mourning the loss of his wife. The PAO staff leadershipthe acting public affairs officer and the leading chief petty officer -- is divided on the suppression of the truth. The pilot begins to discover that his action was not as uncomplicated as he thought. He finds himself unwilling to be used as a propaganda tool by the anti-war group with which he has sought sanctuary. He ultimately prepares a brief statement of justification to the press, which is expanded and amended by the groups leader to advance anti-war, anti-government opinions. Flashback show earlier conversations with the chief and the pilots first combat mission. In the present, the chief, Dan Levin, is concerned about his conversations with Lt. Hetherington, and is worried that he may be the cause of Lt. Hetheringtons action, become involved in the furor, and lose his up-coming promotion. He attempts to hide from himself his involvement, although his wife is sure of the reason he seems disturbed. Dan is a perpetual student, now deeply involved in the intellectual exercise of dissent, from Antigone to Martin Luther King. After Freds doctored statement is read to the press, all hell breaks loose at Navy headquarters, and a high-powered public affairs officer is called in from Washington. A news conference is set up for the Admiral, who is still unaware of the coverup. He finds out during the conference. Meanwhile, Fred has left his sanctuary and gone to Dans house. Dan reluctantly admits him. Dans wife, Natalie, cuts through all the strings and forces resolution by calling the admiral and inviting him over. Resolution comes with Fred gaining understanding from his father and turning himself in. Dans promotion is safe, but despite his intellect, he is still vaguely and deliberately unaware of the subtleties what has happened. This item ships from multiple locations.
