The long-awaited memoir from one of the most acclaimed radical writers in American literature. Described by the London Review of Books as one of “the most brilliant critics writing in America today,” Gary Indiana is a true radical whose caustic voice has by turns haunted and influenced the literary and artistic establishments. With I Can Give You Anything but Love, Gary Indiana has composed a literary, unabashedly wicked, and revealing montage of excursions into his life and work—from his early days growing up gay in rural New Hampshire to his escape to Haight-Ashbury in the post–summer-of-love era, the sweltering 1970s in Los Angeles, and ultimately his existence in New York in the 1980s as a bona fide downtown personality. Interspersed throughout his vivid recollections are present-day chapters set against the louche culture and raw sexuality of Cuba, where he has lived and worked occasionally for the past fifteen years. Connoisseurs will recognize in this—his most personal book yet—the same mixture of humor and realism, philosophy and immediacy, that have long confused the definitions of genre applied to his writing. Vivid, atmospheric, revealing, and entertaining, this is an engrossing read and a serious contribution to the genres of gay and literary memoir.

Excerpt: "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" is an American popular song and jazz standard by Jimmy McHugh (music) and Dorothy Fields (lyrics). The song was introduced by Adelaide Hall at Les Ambassadeurs Club in New York in January 1928 in Lew Leslie's Blackbird Revue, which opened on Broadway later that year as the highly successful Blackbirds of 1928 (518 performances), wherein it was performed by Adelaide Hall, Aida Ward, and Willard McLean. Some controversy surrounds the song's authorship. Andy Razaf biographer Harry Singer offers circumstantial evidence that suggests Fats Waller might have sold the melody to McHugh in 1926 and that the lyrics were by Andy Razaf. Alternatively, Philip Furia has pointed out that Fields' verse is almost identical to the end of the se...

Marlene Dietrich war einer der großen Hollywood-Stars und einer der großen Kino-Mythen. In Deutschland geboren, wurde sie durch Josef von Sterberg entdeckt; in die USA emigriert, wurde sie später dort eingebürgert. Sie wurde zur Ikone der Verführungskunst, der femme fatale, des ewig lockenden Weiblichen. Aber ihr Kampf gegen den Nazismus und ihre Teilnahme als Soldatin im Zweiten Weltkrieg zeigen eine andere, oft unterschlagene Facette ihrer Persönlichkeit. In diesem Werk verrät Marlene Begebnisse und intime Erfahrungen. Ihre Stimme wird durch berühmte Lieder wachgerufen, die ebenso wie ihre Erzählungen ein sagenumwobenes Leben Revue passieren lassen. Was ist das Mysterium, das Marlene Dietrich verbirgt und enthüllt?
