Description:
In midcentury America, the golden age of television, a man named Golk is wreaking havoc with the medium. Through a devastating series of exposures--"You're on Camera"--Golk manipulates the high and mighty, the lowdown and dirty, and the outrageous weird; all are within the compass of Richard Stern in this early novel, a comedy with as many inspired maneuvers as its rambunctious protagonist has for taking the measure of a profligate world.
""Golk" is a rich and marvelously detailed novel by a man with a cultivated intelligence; it is also the first really good book I have read about television."--Norman Mailer
"An original: sharp, funny, intelligent, rare. . . . Working in a clean, oblique style reminiscent of Nathanael West, Mr. Stern has written in" Golk" a first-rate comic novel, a piece of fiction that is at once about and loaded with that kind of recognition that junkies call the flash."--Joan Didion, " National Review "
""Golk" is fantastic, funny, bitter, intelligent without weariness. Best of all Golk is pure--that is to say necessary. Without hokum."--Saul Bellow <BR
