De Kooning's Bicycle: Artists and Writers in the Hamptons
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2006
Duration: 5 hours 28 minutes
Some of the twentieth century's most important artists and writers-from Jackson Pollock to Saul Steinberg, Frank O'Hara to Jean Stafford-lived and worked on the East End of Long Island. The home they made there, and its effect on their work, is the subject of these searching, lyrical vignettes by the critic and poet Robert Long. Long mixes storytelling with history to recreate the lives and events that shaped American art and literature as we know it today, in a landscape where town met country and the modern met American's rural past.
