Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

Author Eddie Woods (born 1940 in New York City) is a well-traveled poet and prose writer who variously worked as a short-order cook, computer programmer, encyclopedia salesman, restaurant manager, and journalist. In the early 1960s he did a four-year stint in the US Air Force, and since 1978 has mainly resided in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where together with Jane Harvey he launched Ins & Outs magazine and founded Ins & Outs Press. Of all the many writers and artists he has known, Tennessee Williams remains the most memorable.

5.0 su 5 stelle A fantastic evocation of underground Bangkok in the early 70's 15 gennaio 2015
Di Philip N Schofield - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A fantastic evocation of underground Bangkok in the early 70's, as seen through the eyes of hustler-with-a-heart, Buddhist and free-wheeling sex-addict Eddie Woods. Woods, who now resides in Amsterdam, was a newspaperman and traveler who spent several years on the oriental leg of the hippy trail. In between penning articles for the Bangkok Post, and working as a stringer for a number of US publications, he found time to immerse himself in the trans-gender world of Bangkok and Singapore, where he fell in love and lived with an exotic "ladyman" called Kim. This in addition to witnessing (and reporting on) a firing squad execution by the Thai army, writing restaurant reviews at establishments where the hors d'oeuvre consisted of warm bats' blood, and introducing Tennesee Williams to the fleshpots of Bangkok, during the latter's sojourn there in October 1970. Woods uses Williams’s visit as a hook upon which to hang all kinds of reflections and observations – about life in general, and about Thai society, politics and sexuality in particular. He paints an engagingly vivid picture of the two of them swanning around the gay bars of Bangkok, without the writing ever feeling voyeuristic, exploitative or prurient - quite an achievement, seeing as everything is upfront (but never uptight) and hanging very much out. "Tennesee Williams In Bangkok" is a real page-turner of a book, a good-humored and honest account of a freer, less constricted time – a must for anyone seriously into the outer reaches of counter-cultural writing. Keep it in an accessible place on your bookshelf, alongside Harold Norse, Brion Gysin, William Burroughs and (especially) Herbert Huncke.

5.0 su 5 stelle REVIEW: Tennessee Williams in Bangkok by Eddie Woods, as perceived by Joanie Hieger Fritz Zosike 23 gennaio 2014
Di Joanie Hieger Zosike - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
In the Epilogue of Tennessee Williams in Bangkok, Eddie Woods writes: "I've often been asked to write about my time with Tennessee. And while I didn't mind telling the stories privately, my answer to publishing them was always no. All the more so if it were in an article for some big bucks paying mainstream publication. I considered it disrespectful, and in this case for someone for whom I have a great deal of respect. Also frightfully transparent, trading on a famous person's name....Plus, there was something else. Tom (TW) asked me not to....'May I write about you?' I asked. 'Oh no, baby, please don't,' he said. 'We know one another too well.'"

This is the prism through which Eddie Woods's Tennessee Williams in Bangkok may be viewed. Obviously, Woods is a great raconteur: vivid, candid, witty, surprising. His personal story about his life in Bangkok and the Far East in general, unravels like a favorite old sweater. We see the color of the threads and are delighted. We understand the design because we've seen it whole, and the fragments of it are refractive and considered. We learn a great deal about the author, from his proclivities to his world view, and even the transformation of his world view.

But throughout, I kept thinking, "Okay, well, now let's get to the part about Tennessee." Tennessee was present of course, but everything about him was pristine and distanced. There were numerous anecdotes, incidents and asides, but I never felt they got into the nitty gritty as far as Tennessee Williams was concerned. Given this is such a gritty, although charming book, it was a bit disconcerting because I really couldn't find Tennessee Williams in Bangkok. I could only detect a ghost of his appearance there.

To my mind, this is a deliberate choice on the part of the author, as evidenced by the quote above. Eddie Woods has an immense respect for his friend, and a trust that he refuses to betray. I respect that, and feel that the book orbits around this equator. That's what makes it such an interesting piece of writing. And I must say, the final part of the book, a short three act play, is absolutely the digestif desired to top off a small but splendid feast of a book.
4.0 su 5 stelle a great read 23 novembre 2013
Di Henry G. James - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Eddie Woods’ "Tennessee Williams in Bangkok" is a great read, richly evocative of a particular era and full of fabulous stories – and I don't just mean the ones about Tennessee Williams. Woods has a rare natural gift as a storyteller. His author’s voice is charming and seductive: I surrendered to him totally after a page or two and read straight through to the end. Although the book is in part a hymn to tranny love, one can't help but be fascinated by Woods’ treatment of sex: frank yet not embarrassing, just enough detail to make it believable, but no yucky stuff.

5.0 su 5 stelle Ediie Woods finally tells the whole story 26 novembre 2013
Di A. van der Veen "Tonebone" - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
“Tennessee Williams in Bangkok” is one of Eddie Woods’ best offerings yet, and a story that simply had to be told. It has a touch of the classic about it, and is timeless. I loved it and couldnt put it down - I had to read it through at one sitting.
