Acquista per 27,00 $ Estratto

  • An extraordinary memoir in the vein of Small Fry that looks at a troubled father / daughter dynamic alongside the art and writing history of the New York School, and New York City from the 1960s to the present day. Calhoun’s father, Peter Schjeldahl, is the longterm art critic at the New Yorker. Her mother is actress Brooke Alderson
  • Born out of Ada’s discovery of her father’s taped interviews with various NY School figures while researching his O’Hara biography, the book began as Ada’s attempt to succeed where her father had failed and complete the biography. Instead it brought Ada face to face with her childhood, her journey as a writer, and her own complicated familial relationships
  • Ada’s last book Why We Can't Sleep was an instant NYT Bestseller, an Indie Next Pick, and a Best Book of the Year for Amazon, Glamour, Bustle, and Parade
  • Also A Poet includes never before heard or read interviews with infamous New York School figures like Edward Gorey, Larry Rivers, Kenneth Koch, and Jane Freilicher, each of whom speak candidly and on the record about their relationships with and opinions of Frank O’Hara
  • Will appeal to diehard O’Hara fans as well as anyone interested in the art and writing worlds, in poetry, in New York, and in the impact of having famous parents
  • Ada is incredibly beloved and well connected. We already have a
    blurbs in from Tom Hanks and Susannah Cahalan, and expect a lot more in
    the coming months
