A richly detailed portrait of one of the great movements in American arts and letters, The Last Avant-Garde covers the years 1948-1966 and focuses on four fast friends- the poets Frank O'Hara, James Schuyler, John Asbery, and Kenneth Koch. Lehman brings to vivid life the extraordinary creative ferment of the time and place, the relationship of great friendship to great art, and the powerful influence that a group of visual artists- especially Jane Freilicher, Larry Rivers, and Fairfield Porter- had on the literary efforts of the New York School. The Last Avant-Garde is both a definiitve and lively view of a quintessentially American aesthetic and an exploration of the dynamics of creativity.
