John O'Hara Ý 7 DOWNLOAD

A momentous bestseller when it was first published in 1949 John O’Hara’s sprawling novel A Rage to Live offers up a gorgeous pageant of idealists and libertines tradesmen and crusaders men of violence and goodwill and women of fierce strength and tendern To my mind I am beginning to seriously consider the notion that John O Hara is the American mid 20th century euivalent to Britain s Anthony Trollope of the 19th century O Hara was a prolific writer of short stories novellas and novels from the late 1920s up until his death in 1970 He was incredibly adept at portraying all walks of life in the Pennsylvania coal country that he grew up in or the streets and nightclubs of New York City as well as on the film lots and studios of Hollywood His real skill though is his ability to describe and characterize the relationships between men and womenO Hara s A Rage to Live first published in 1949 is the story of the life of Grace Caldwell Tate Grace is a woman of great wealth and great beauty with an incredibly strong connection to the Pennsylvania Dutch landscape where she has lived her entire life Not to put too fine a point on it Grace likes sex and this butts directly up against the rules that society places on the behavior of women in her day and time There are conseuences associated with Grace s choices and actions and these conseuences affect many of the citizens of the little town of Fort Penn where Grace lives with her husband Sidney Tate and their three children A Rage to Live is an enthralling portrait of small town America just before during and following the First World War This historical view of early 20th century Pennsylvania as seen through the eyes of Grace and Sidney was fascinating for me O Hara deftly describes the days of horses and wagons yielding to Model T s Ford Coupes and Pierce Arrows the patriotic fervor and fear of the on coming World War in Europe terrible diseases like influenza and infantile paralysis ie polio myelitus that indiscriminately strike rich and poor and old and young the party line telephone system and even the the arcane goings on at the local cocktail and dinner parties There is even a brief little vignette where an older and mature Grace Caldwell Tate meets and chats up the young 17 or 18 year old Julian English long before he has married the pretty Caroline Walker bought his Cadillac dealership and later when at a party on a cold Christmas Eve in a fit of piue throws his highball and ice into the face of Harry Reilly precipitating the events characterized in O Hara s most famous novel An Appointment in Samarra 1934This was a hell of a good book that kept me turning one page after the other I know that some reviewers have complained that it was too long but I respectfully disagree it was just right In a sense this novel is the bildungsroman of Grace Caldwell and it just wouldn t have made sense to only partially know Grace No the reader needs to know all of Grace in order to better understand her Rage to LiveThis novel is John O Hara s A Portrait of a Lady Grace Caldwell Tate and it merits 45 stars out of 5 and ends up being a truly classic work of modern American literature and a novel that I guarantee you that I look forward to rereading again in the future Biogenealogy it was first published Sobre el anarquismo (Biblioteca de Divulgación Anarquista in 1949

    Interesting period piece information 700 pages Whew The title A Rage to Live gave me the impression it would be intense Instead its kind of like a PG 13 Philadelphia Story Not normally my type of book but interesting writing style Sometimes the author would spend 2 pages describing each and every person say invited to a party whether or not they were characters later in the book it would go on and on and on often making me want to

    Ah such excruciating detail on the small town elite of imagined Fort Allen PA O'Hara deserves credit for this detailed setting and I was surprised for the matter of fact and fairly explicit sex scenes of an early 60s book Was O'Hara ahead of his time Did the work get banned here and thereI thought from the movie Grace would be an unbridled nymphomaniac just someone that seemed damaged in a way and gave in to the expectation that she would p

    His Appointment in Samarra is just wonderful and he's credited with being one of the great short story writers of the 20th century but O'Hara is simply dreadful here I was astonished at how dull it is There's something dispiriting about an obviously talented writer writing badly O'Hara thought of A Rage to Live as his magnum opus a grand social novel but his envy and resentment towards the upper crust Pennsylvanians among whom he grew up l

    The saga of Grace Caldwell a socialite from a time when that meant setting standards of behavior rather than panty flashes falling out of a limo Ostensibly she isn't terribly likable but there is something irresistible about her unapologetic masculine behavior which displays the double standards and hypocrisy of the time A long b
