Beschreibung

Published in 1970 as Neugeboren's 4th title after two novels and a story collection, Parenthesis: An Autobiographical Journey is the personal and political odyssey of the highly praised 30 year old in search of his country. Within, Neugeboren attempts to bridge the generation gap between artists of the 50's and 60's.

What marks this book as different from many of those other tales chronicling American history at that time period is Neugeboren's having taken an outsider's viewpoint. During the height of his anti-Vietnam activities, Neugeboren and his wife moved to the village of Speracedes in Southern France. For eighteen months he wrote, visited friends, traveled, lived a quiet, intensely personal life, but still could not escape from his country.
