Slow Fade — Rudolph Wurlitzer

Slow Fade — Rudolph Wurlitzer




Softcover, 194 pages
5 x 7.75 inches
Drag City
2011 (Originally published in 1984)

The return of Slow Fade is a fine thing. Its Rudy Wurlitzers greatest work of fiction, both as a novel and as a screenplay, and one of the best American books there is. ... [Its] based on Wurlitzers personal experiences with noted film director Sam Peckinpah, and also with the American Sixties dharma trip in India and elsewhere. Either subject would have been a fine basis for a novel. Only Rudys restless mind could make one story of both, merging two seemingly disparate things into one mad world—one compact, entertaining, edgy, tragic, epic narrative.
