Vanished Act: The Life and Art of Weldon Kees

Lincoln, Nebraska: University of Nebraska Press, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. James Reidel’s work ‘Vanished Act’ is a long anticipated biography of the elusive and prolific Weldon Kees. Starting at Kees’ birth in Nebraska in 1914, tracing the arc of his career as a short story writer, novelist, poet and critic in New York; to his time as a jazz musician, abstract expressionist, theater, and his work as a filmmaker and photographer, this work covers the expanse of Kees’ life and is an exploration of his creative output over its course. Reidel’s book is an intimate look at the accomplished, yet harrowing life of Kees and posits that he was, and remains, one of the most significant creatives in postwar twentieth-century America. Hardcover in unclipped dust-jacket: First Edition, with no reference to other editions or printings at copyright page. Book in very fine condition, nearly flawless except for extremely miniscule smudge on front cover. Dust-jacket in near fine condition, slight shelf-wear to fine edges, slight bending on inner-flaps, otherwise pristine. Very Fine / Near Fine. [Item #4976]
