The Tar Baby

Charyn, Jerome (1937-)

243 pages. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") issued in brown cloth with black lettering to spine and black figure to front cover. First edition. Audaciously cast in the form of a hilariously ribald parody of a literary Quarterly - including such magazine paraphernalia as ads and letters to the editor - The Tar Baby, Charyn's seventh novel, coalesces into a brilliant, story-filled novel populated by an array of brawling academics and earthy townies. Above all, it is an entertainment that will disturb and delight a college-bred generation. Jerome Charyn was born in the Bronx area of New York and was educated at Columbia (BA, 1959), where he studied history and comparative literature with a focus on Russian literature. He has written 37 novels including three memoirs about his childhood in the Bronx, The Dark Lady from Belorusse, The Black Swan, and Bronx Boy, the first two of which were named New York Times Book Of the Year. He now lives in Paris, where he taught film at the American University of Paris. He is now an Emeritus Professor there. His novel, Darlin' Bill received the Rosenthal Award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Over ten of Charyn's novels feature the mythic hero-cop of a surreal New York City, Isaac Sidel. His latest book of nonfiction, Sizzling Chops and Devilish Spins, was published in November 2001, and deals with Ping Pong. His personal papers are held by the Fales Library at New York University. Condition: A near fine copy in a near fine, price clipped jacket.
