Summary

Wildly comic and bitterly satiric, Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things is Gilbert Sorrentino's ruthless, and timeless, attack on the New York art world of the 1950s and '60s. Guaranteed permanent relevance by the never-ending presence of the marginally talented--and populated by artists who sold out, would-be artists with little ability, and hopeless hangers-on--this brilliant novel masterfully dissects the art world's culture of corruption and compromise, and in so doing examines the social and political malaise that continues to have a grip on modern America. One of Gilbert Sorrentino's most engaging novels, Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things is often named among the most important novels of the last several decades.

Author Bio

Perhaps the most influential and prolific American novelist of the past forty years, Gilbert Sorrentino�s work represents American fiction at its best and most daring. As an editor for the literary magazines Neon and Kulcher, and later at Grove Press in the 1960s, together with a passion for creating new challenges for himself with each new novel he wrote, Mr. Sorrentino�s accomplishments will exercise an influence on writers for generations to come. His novels include The Sky Changes, Steelwork, Aberration of Starlight, Mulligan Stew, and Crystal Vision.
