Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers who fell in love with The Eighth Lively Art will delight in the stories and profiles that the painter and paleontologist Wesley Wehr has collected in this follow-up to his earlier memoir of Pacific Northwest artistic and intellectual life in the 1950s and 1960s. Above all, these are Wehr's accounts, distilled by passionate recollection, of what some remarkable artists and thinkers brought out in him and in each other--stories of creative people and how they inspired, influenced, challenged, and occasionally infuriated one another.

Wesley Wehr, painter and composer, is affiliate curator of paleobotany at the Burke Museum of Natural History, University of Washington. He is the author of The Eighth Lively Art: Conversations with Painters, Poets, Musicians, and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Book News Annotation:

Painter and composer Wehr (paleobotany, U. of Washington) begins with a disclaimer that the stories he tells about his artist friends are not necessarily characteristic of them, but only his observation and experience. He describes what creativity they brought out in each other and in him, and how they inspired, influenced, challenged, and sometimes infuriated one another.
