Kurzbeschreibung

Not too long ago, though it's hard to imagine now, New York City was a very different place. There were vast swaths of Manhattan where folks from the right side of the tracks were warned not to venture. East of Bowery was where anything could happen and a young man could get lost. For those of us who were there, it was our Wild West, our undeclared war.

"I had a bicycle, a sometimes ex-girlfriend who once had great hopes for us and still sometimes looked at me with a tell-tale wishfulness. I had the clothes on my back and a little money and a terminal case of wanderlust. In the downtown city streets I had met my real match. I probably had a habit, but I didn't know it, which is a sweet spot for a dopefiend to be in. For a while anyway."
East of Bowery began as a collaborative web project between writer Drew Hubner (American by Blood, We Pierce) and photographer Ted Barron in 2008. It was subsequently performed as a multi-media performance with live musical accompaniment at The Gershwin Hotel and The Bowery Poetry Club. This is the first print publication of the project.

"Drew Hubner's prose and Ted Barron's photos are kin, at once raw and lyrical, grit and grace, which is what the city was like back then. The combination is magic, the essence of the time and place." - Luc Sante, author of Low Life and Kill All Your Darlings

"East of Bowery is a sharply-focused, street-level view of Downtown before the real estate agents started renaming everything." - Steve Earle, author of Doghouse Roses and I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive

"Drew Hubner writes like people used to." - William Georgiades, New York Magazine

"The voice is loose, jazzy, and fast, the memories liquid and hot, avoiding the romance of macho drug memoirs with black humor, verisimilitude and a knack for the absurd..." - Kate Christensen, author of In the Drink and The Astral

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Authentic Voice Of New York's Lower East Sid 13. Dezember 2011
Von Christian X. Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
No thinly disguised bildungsroman for Drew Hubner. Hubner a survivor of
the heroin version of the decade long Loasida pub crawl through hell
returns triumphant with gritty tales of the long lost Lower East Side the
way it was before the fake hipsters and yuppies turned it into Disneyland
For Douchebags. In East of Bowery a wet behind the ears, innocent from the North Carolina arrives on the L.E.S. looking to make his literary mark in a neighborhood teeming with Bukowski wannabees, experiencing the dope life on the streets of the unvarnished L.E.S. where transgression is not a dirty word, but rather a way of life. Hubner's L.E.S. illustrated with photos by Ted Barron, the John Fante of B&W photography, is instantly recognizably authentic to those who lived for it - and will be a huge pleasure for readers who get to experience it years later from the comfort of a cozy armchair with a cat on their lap. Read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Shaking...... 28. Dezember 2011
Von Bill Kenny - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a story by a writer. With photo's by an artist. This is not a book by someone who writes to eat. This is by a soul who eats to write. This book left me feeling truth like few books have.

Drew Hubner writes like he's captured the flag, and Ted Barron's photographs remind me that the world has luminosity and soul, and that life is for living, and worth it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The imagery of physical things will carry whatever sort of lies you can think up 28. Januar 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
" In those days, New York City was absolutely lousy with people who had come to the big city to become writers."

So begins "No Rio", the fourth chapter of East of Bowery, by Drew Hubner at Ted Barron. Hubner and Barron tell the story, through short vignettes and photographs, of the late 80's Lo-Ea-sider everyman- a dope-shooting writer who moves from bar to squat to dope spot to poetry reading to NA meeting, on the black and white streets familiar to anyone lucky enough to have experienced those twilight days of New York downtown greatness. It's all in there- Save the Robots, The Circle bar, The "Hat", Sophie's, the Gas Station, The International, the Zoo Bar. PS 122, ABC No Rio, Max Fish, Angelica's, The Parkside, Blue and Gold, Mona's.... The Tompkins Square riot, Clayton Paterson, Adam Purple...

The project began as a web collaborative between writer Hubner and photographer Barron, and has now been published in book form by Sensitive Sin (which has itself grown from 80's East Village zine to webzine and now publishing house).

Hubner's writing is visually rich and his storytelling tight. "The imagery of physical things will carry whatever sort of lies you can think up", his protagonist states at one point, and it works for Hubner in this case- in his bio he claims that the stories are total fiction, but they read as utterly believable memoirs. The voice of the time and the place is present, but despite the junkie theme, he's not "doing" Jim Carol. He has the perspective of someone looking back, without glorification. He tells the story of one of those who came from the outside, (in this case Raleigh) rode high in the pre-hipster days, and then crashed hard into the wall of addiction.

Barron's photos are wonderful artifacts of the time- images of the Lower East Side that is no more. They are beautifully composed, but they stop time so effectively that the have the feel of a tourists snapshots. Instead of the Empire State Building or Times Square, they are of the intersection across from the Gem Spa, children with a toy gun next to a Dinkins era police cruiser, a cat on a shooting gallery rooftop. If I have any complaint about this book, it is that I would have like to see more of Barron's photos, and in a larger format. Luckily, there are more available on their blog, [...].

Hubner and Barron have done a great job of capturing a moment in time- those last days before Giuliani changed New York forever, when art lived with the poor, not in the sanitized world of internet marketing. Before digital media brought everything to everyone, when mutant culture still eddied in artistic backwaters, high, nodding, un-tweeted.

Great reading about the streets I roamed in my youth from 484 east Houston street 1954 to 1979. Good work, my man.
