Mr. North

Marking the thirtieth anniversary of Theophilus North, this beautiful new edition features Wilder's unpublished notes for the novel and other illuminating documentary material, all of which is included in a new Afterword by Tappan Wilder. The last of Wilder's works published during his lifetime, this novel is part autobiographical and part the imagined adventure of his twin brother who died at birth. Setting out to see the world in the summer of 1926, Theophilus North gets as far as Newport, Rhode Island, before his car breaks down. To support himself, Theophilus takes jobs in the elegant mansions along Ocean Drive, just as Wilder himself did in the same decade. Soon the young man finds himself playing the roles of tutor, spy, confidant, lover, friend, and enemy as he becomes entangled in the intrigues of both upstairs and downstairs in a glittering society dominated by leisure. Narrated by the elderly North from a distance of fifty years, Theophilus North is a fascinating commentary on youth and education from the vantage point of age, and deftly displays Wilder's trademark wit juxtaposed with his lively and timeless ruminations on what really matters about life, love, and work at the end of the day'even after a visit to Newport.

http://schema.org/description

  • "Ayant rêvé d'être un saint, un détective, un comédien, un aventurier et tout ce qui peut être imaginé par un jeune homme sans humour et sans amour, Teddy North joue tous ces rôles dans un endroit chic de tourisme durant l'été 1926. Un film élaboré par John Huston et réalisé par son fils Danny."
  • "A young man drifts into Newport and in his short stay of four months gently influences the lives of various people during the 1920's."
  • "Poslední autorův román má četné autobiografické prvky a je koncipován jako řada satirických příběhů z amerického přímořského města dvacátých let, které karikují devět literárních konvencí a jako celek skládají jakousiamerickouromantickou lidskou komedii."
