Compo, Susan:
Life After Death and Other Stories - First edition

1990, ISBN: 0571129021

Hardcover, ID: 5274328658

[EAN: 9780571129027], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Faber and Faber], LIFE DEATH SHORT STORIES, Very little visible wear on covers and along spine. Pages remain bright, clear and unmarked. 1990 Hard Cover. From her background in the Los Angeles punk scene as publisher of her own fanzine, Compo creates a weird and wonderful trip into the post-punk subculture, written in precise, witty, unflinching prose. Each of the book's three sections presents a variation on the young characters' search for meaning in music, relationships, religion and ritual. Concern with image prevails in the novella "Life After Death" in which Zelda Zonk, a Marilyn Monroe-lookalike, gets her boyfriend Vex, a David Bowie idolizer, to join her quest to retrieve Marilyn's diary. Sudden, amusing plot twists and coincidental meetings are used again in "Wallpaper," a series of 11 vignettes about characters with intertwining relationships, including monologues from Alma, a writer, that frame her "romance stories about people who can't love." The stories deal with the importance of image and its conflict with reality; the attraction of religion, especially Catholicism, to the often-superstitious punkers; and the giving and taking involved in love. The final section, "Never an Autumn but Always a Fall,' highlights the problems of love--love passed by, and love as obsession; love ending theatrically and love ending sordidly. Compo's sympathetic, often tongue-in-cheek insights make an exciting collage.
