The author of the acclaimed City Poet returns with a searing memoir of life in 1980s New York City--a colorful and atmospheric tale of wild bohemians, glamorous celebrity, and complicated passions--with cameo appearances by Madonna, Robert Mapplethorpe, William Burroughs, and a host of others legendary artists. Brad Gooch arrived in New York in the late 1970s, yearning for artistic and personal freedom. Smash Cut is his bold and intimate memoir of this exhilarating time and place. At its center is his love affair with film director Howard Brookner, pieced together from fragments of memory and fueled by a panoply of emotions, from blazing ecstasy to bleakest despair. As both men try to reconcile love and fidelity with the irresistible desire to enjoy the freedom of the age, they live together and apart. Gooch works briefly as a model in Milan, then returns to the city and discovers his vocation as an artist. Brookner falls ill with a mysterious virus that soon has a terrifying name: AIDS. And the story, and life in the city, is suddenly overshadowed by this new demon plague that will ravage a generation and transform the creative world. Gooch charts the progress of Brookner through his illness, and writes unforgettably about endings: of a great talent, a passionate love affair, and an incandescent era. Beautifully written, full of rich detail and poignant reflection, recalling a time and a place and group of friends with affection and clarity, Smash Cut is an extraordinary memoir and an exquisite account of an epoch. Illustrated with 30 black-and-white photographs.… (lisätietoja)

In his new memoir Smash Cut, novelist (Scary Kisses) and biographer (City Poet: The Life and Times of Frank O’Hara) Brad Gooch recounts his experiences in New York City during the turbulent ’70s and ’80s. With his relationship with filmmaker Howard Brookner as the focus, Gooch covers a dizzying array of events and a constellation of notable characters in retelling his life with Brookner, from their first date in 1978 to Howard’s death at age 34 in 1989. Interspersed with photos, drawings and other documents, the memoir uses the titular “smash cut” film device of “splicing one image or event up against another totally unrelated image or event” to tell its story. At times, Gooch hesitates, puts off telling a detail or a story, most often about some sexual or drug-related transgression, as exploring the “wild side” in the ‘70s and ‘80s meant trips to the infamous Mineshaft bar, speed, cocaine and heroin as well as clubbing at the Paradise Garage and visiting with Chelsea Hotel neighbor Virgil Thompson. Gooch gets over these hesitations and presses on, telling almost all. Oddly, however, what’s often missing in Smash Cut is not detail, for there is a good deal of that, but the difficult to put ones finger on ‘flavor’ of the times. What did it feel like to be in these places, live at these times? However, if, as Tolstoy famously wrote “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way,” Brad Gooch has given us a fine example of what a happy gay couple holding onto each other through tumultuous and finally tragic times looks like.
