Описание

From the Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author of Strange Wine: A gritty memoir of life in NYC that
became the basis for a Hitchcock TV drama. This audiobook also includes Ellison’s Children of the Streets.
Hemingway said, “A man should never write what he doesn’t know.” In the mid
-fifties, Harlan Ellison—kicked
out of college and hungry to write—went to New York to start his career. It was a time of street gangs, rumbles, kids
with switchblades, and zip guns made from car radio antennas. Ellison was barely out of his teens himself, but he took
a phony name, moved into Brooklyn’s dangerous Red Hook section, and managed to con his way into a “bopping
club.” What he experienced (and the time he spent in jail as a result) was the basis for the violent story that Alfred
Hitchcock filmed as the first of his hour
-long TV dramas. This autobiography is a book whose message you will not
be able to ignore or forget.

Об авторе

Harlan Ellison (1934–2018), in a career spanning more than fifty years, wrote or edited one hundred fourteen books; more than seventeen hundred stories, essays, articles, and newspaper columns; two dozen teleplays; and a dozen motion pictures. He won the Hugo Award eight and a half times (shared once); the Nebula Award three times; the Bram Stoker Award, presented by the Horror Writers Association, five times (including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996); the Edgar Allan Poe Award of the Mystery Writers of America twice; the Georges Melies Fantasy Film Award twice; and two Audie Awards (for the best in audio recordings); and he was awarded the Silver Pen for Journalism by PEN, the international writers’ union. He was presented with the first Living Legend Award by the International Horror Critics at the 1995 World Horror Convention. Ellison is the only author in Hollywood ever to win the Writers Guild of America award for Outstanding Teleplay (solo work) four times, most recently for “Paladin of the Lost Hour,” his Twilight Zone episode that was Danny Kaye’s final role, in 1987. In 2006, Ellison was awarded the prestigious title of Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Dreams with Sharp Teeth, the documentary chronicling his life and works, was released on DVD in May 2009. He passed away in 2018 at the age of eighty-four.
