Walk On The Wild Side written by Nicholas Christopher

 

Walk On The Wild Side written by Nicholas Christopher

Overview:

"Walk on the Wild Side", the first anthology to plumb the maze of American urban life, gives us the city in all its forms: ethnic, economic, religious, political, sexual, intellectual. Poet and novelist Nicholas Christopher has chosen 115 poems from sixty poets, representing more than twenty cities. These are not just poems "about" cities, or with the city as subject; they filter and radiate the diversity and vitality of today's cities, from the electric night of New York to the sun-blanked sprawl of Los Angeles, from the factories of Pittsburgh to the waterfront of New Orleans. A kinetic mix of new voices and established writers, "Walk on the Wild Side" presents the timeless themes of poetry through the prism of our unique urban experience.

In cities like New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, poetry is reclaiming a place in our culture, as evidenced by hundreds of readings each month. With the city as its focus, Walk on the Wild Side is the first anthology to tap into the urban resurgence of American poetry. Features 120 poems.

Publishers Weekly

Born in Wales in 1937, Hopkins was a reticent youth and an indifferent student remembered mostly for his gift of mimicry. After drama college graduation, a stint in the army and itinerant acting jobs, he entered the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and was selected by Laurence Olivier as a member of the National Theatre. Hopkins's break came when he substituted for an ill Olivier in Strindberg's Dance of Death , for which he received glowing reviews. He made his first movie, The Lion in Winter in 1968, married and had a daughter, Abby, born in 1969. Soon alcohol began to affect both his career and his marriage, which ended in divorce. In 1975 Hopkins joined AA and is still a member. Callan provides behind-the-camera anecdotes about the making of such movies as A Bridge Too Far , Audrey Rose and The Elephant Man ; high points of Hopkins's career, such as his Emmy for playing Bruno Hauptmann in Lindbergh and his best-actor Oscar for The Silence of the Lambs , are also discussed.
