Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------------HOMAGE TO BLENHOLT by Daniel Fuchs. Daniel Fuchs (June 25, 1909 - July 26, 1993) was an American screenwriter, fiction writer, and essayist. He was born in the Lower East Side, Manhattan, but his family migrated to Williamsburg, Brooklyn while Fuchs was an infant. He wrote three early novels--Summer in Williamsburg (1934), Homage to Blenholt (1936), and Low Company (1937)--the earlier two of these depicting Jewish life in Williamsburg, the last focusing on various ethnic types in Brighton Beach. A single volume of these three novels, entitled The Brooklyn Novels, was published in 2006 by Black Sparrow Books, an imprint of David R. Godine, Publisher. His style is naturalistic and sincere, with occasional dips into the sardonic (Summer in Williamsburg) and the solemn (Low Company). Fuchs' point of view is always skeptical and independent--in the manner of a Brooklyn Chekhov--and the author's limited reputation (as well as, perhaps, his reduced literary ambition) are plausibly ascribed to the fact that after three fine novels, there wasn't much appeal in being even a Chekhov in Brooklyn. Homage to Blenholt concerns a well-meaning tenement schlemiel who hopes to escape poverty via various inventions and get-rich quick schemes (self-sustaining parachutes, bottled onion juice, etc.); John Updike considered it Fuchs's "best work." Other important Fuchs supporters and critics are Irving Howe and Leslie Fiedler.Daniel Fuchs (June 25, 1909 - July 26, 1993) was an American screenwriter, fiction writer, and essayist.
