BEFORE THEIR TIME - signed or inscribed book

2015, ISBN: 9780679447894

Paperback, Hardcover, ID: 794214616

'Malone', writes Malone, 'is what I am called now'. On his deathbed, and wiling away the time with stories, the octogenarian Malone's account of his condition is intermittent and contradictory, shifting with the vagaries of the passing days: without mellowness, without elegiacs; wittier, jauntier, and capable of wilder rages than "Molloy". The sound I liked best had nothing noble about it. It was the barking of the dogs, at night, in the clusters of hovels up in the hills, where the stone-cutters lived, like generations of stone-cutters before them. It came down to me where I lay, in the house in the plain, wild and soft, at the limit of earshot, soon weary. The dogs of the valley replied with their gross bay all fangs and jaws and foam.Keywords: LITERATURE Pencil marks in text. Grove Press, 1978.

Printed Pages: 160., Rupa Publications India, 2015, New York 1997, Knopf, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/4 x 7 3/4, Fine/Fine condition, 195 pages. In this warm and deeply moving memoir, novelist Robert Kotlowitz recounts his experiences as a teen-age infantryman in the Second World War. In a voice both restrained and unsentimental, he releases the memories that he has fiercely held on to for fifty years, memories of his comrades in arms, his youthful idealism, and-at the dark center of the talc-the massacre of his platoon in the hills of northeastern France. With his sharp, ironic novelist's eye, Kotlowitz brings every moment of his experience to life, from the day he's drafted as an eighteen-year-old and thrown into basic training and maneuvers in Tennessee (where, in a grimly foreboding incident, twenty fellow recruits drown in the flooded waters of the Cumberland River). We meet his friends and companions: the fragile, intelligent, bumbling Fedderman: quick-wined Gallagher, "all feist and snap"; quirky Willis, whose habit of stealing his buddies' underwear is tolerated because he is their scout and their lives might depend on him. We feel the excitement of a young Francophile in the idyllic French countryside, and the anxiety of a Jew about to face the German army. We sense the author's youthful idealism begin to slip away as he faces foolish superiors, senseless orders, useless drudgery. Then, suddenly, Kotlowitz faces death itself: his platoon is sent to the front and finds itself in a tense waiting game with German soldiers dug in only a couple of hundred yards away. Time passes anxiously, punctuated only by artillery fire and the hissing of potshots from German rifles. Eventually, inexplicably, the platoon is ordered to attack-and they are slaughtered. Kotlowitz alone comes through unscathed, but only by playing dead for twelve hours while machine-gun fire, mortar shells, and grenades explode around him and his friends lie dying. He survives, filled with guilt and self-recrimination, as well as rage at the American officers who ordered the attack.

Before Their Time: A Memoir - used book

ISBN: 067944789X

ID: 2270055

In the summer of 1943, Robert Kotlowitz, an indifferent premed student at Johns Hopkins University, was drafted into the army. "I told myself," he writes in his affecting memoir of World War II, "that it was better than being blatantly tossed out of college." In any event, he continues, "part of me, at eighteen, was eager to suffer the hazards and humiliations of war." Hazards and humiliations he found in abundance. He was assigned to a company led by an inept captain and put to work in a Browning Automatic Rifle unit. In combat school at Fort Benning he learned that, in battle, such units had a life expectancy of eleven seconds. "That is not hyperbole," he adds wryly. "It is scientific fact." But Kotlowitz lived through the war, fueled by his hatred, as a Jew, for the German enemy, and burning with the patriotic fervor of a young man. Both his hatred and his fervor diminished as he endured battle, living close to the bone and watching as his comrades fell. Kotlowitz writes with skill and mordant humor of the infantryman's life, of the incredible instinct to survive, of "the sounds ... never before heard, swelling over the noise of small-arms and machine-gun fire, of men's voices calling for help or screaming in pain or terror--our own men's voices, unrecognizable at first, weird in pitch and timbre." His fine memoir belongs on readers' shelves alongside such books as Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers and Paul Fussell's Doing Battle, primary documents biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,historical,history,leaders and notable people,memoirs,military,world war ii Biographies, Knopf
