FROM THIS EPISODE

last_novel.jpgThe Last Novel (Shoemaker & Hoard)
David Markson has invented his own "personal genre." His novels present collaged panoramas of the travails of art and artists—the bad reviews, the rivalries, the life-long neglect, the impoverished deaths. Markson's juxtapositions can be comic or tragic. Each anecdote is honed to perfection. How did he create his very special and specific form? Why has it finally won him the recognition that has eluded his work until now?
