The Man in the Flying Lawn Chair: And Other Excursions and Observations - used book

ISBN: 9781400063420

ID: 6023769

George Plimpton needed no encouragement. If there was a sport to play, a party to throw, a celebrity to amaze, a fireworks display to ignite, Plimpton was front and center hurling the pitch, popping the corks, lighting the fuse. And then, of course, writing about it with incomparable zest and style. His books made him a legend. "The Paris Review," the magazine he founded and edited, won him a throne in literary heaven. Somehow, in the midst of his self-generated cyclones, Plimpton managed to toss off dazzling essays, profiles, and "New Yorker" "Talk of the Town" pieces. This delightful volume collects the very best of Plimpton's inspired brief "excursions." Whether he was escorting Hunter Thompson to the "Fear and Loathing" movie premiere in New York or tracking down the California man who launched himself into the upper atmosphere with nothing but a lawn chair and a bunch of weather balloons, Plimpton had a rare knack for finding stories where no one else thought to look. Who but Plimpton would turn up in Las Vegas, notebook in hand, for the annual porn movie awards gala? Among the many gems collected here are accounts of helping Jackie Kennedy plan an unforgettable children's birthday party, the time he improvised his way through amateur night at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater, and how he managed to get himself kicked out of Exeter just weeks before graduation. The grand master of what he called "participatory journalism," George Plimpton followed his bent and his genius down the most unbelievable rabbit holes-but he always came up smiling. This exemplary, utterly captivating volume is a fitting tribute to one of the great literary lives of our time.

New York: Random House, 2004. First Edition, First Printing Hardcover FINE in AS NEW DJ 8vo (6-1/4 x 9-1/2), 184 pp. Hardbound book is Unmarked and FINE, in AS NEW pictorial DJ. (h) In an age of specialization, a slightly built man who could be Editor-in-Chief of The Paris Review, get in the ring and box Archie Moore and Sugar Ray Robinson, quarterback an NFL team for several plays in an exhibition game, train as an ice hockey goaliee, etc., stands pretty much alone. But there was a single rationale for all of it, that being that perhaps there's some wonderful talent inside each of us if only we had the opportunity to bring it out. This collection, edited by his widow, shows the adventurous nature of this man., Random House, 2004.
