The artists he championed include Jackson Pollock Joseph Cornell Grace Hartigan Jane Freilicher Joan Mitchell and Robert Rauschenberg The flowering of O'Hara's talent cut short by a fatal car accident in 1966 produced some of the most exuberant truly celebratory lyrics of the twentieth century And it produced America's greatest poet of city life since WhitmanAlternating between O'Hara's poems and LeSueur's memory of the circumstances that in Memoirs like these can sometimes seem a little pitiful like a desperate grab at a great writer's estate I think one of Keroac's wives published one recently that really exemplified this But though Joe LeSueuer's achievements pale in comparison to his subject's he's aware enough to pass this off with honesty and humor making the memoir not pitiful at all but warm and personal His very intimate very as the title implies digressive style works perfectly to illuminate the social milieu surrounding Frank O'Hara's poems a milieu which formed the substance of so many of those poems There are lovers friends employers parties fights tifts witticisms rivalries insults everything that is in here He also gives great insight into Frank's writing methods or lack thereof for instance he recalls Frank getting up once in the middle of conversation going over to his typewriter for five minutes and coming back with a poem LeSueuer is very honest about his separation with Frank too right before Frank's death which gives it a sad and poignant end Although Frank's death cut short so much great art it's truly wonderful to have one of his intimates preserve the spirit of that era in memoir The Rabbit Effect: Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier with the Groundbreaking Science of Kindness up once in the middle of conversation going over to his typewriter for five minutes and coming back with a poem LeSueuer is very honest about his separation with Frank too right before Frank's death which gives it a sad and poignant end Although Frank's death cut short so much great art it's truly wonderful to have one of his intimates preserve the spirit of that era in memoir
