Format: Paperback
Andy Kaufman's "GOD. . .and Other Plays" is a must read for all hardcore Kaufmaniacs.
Andy's tour de force is the opening play titled "GOD", which he performed in a local campus coffee shop during his Grahm Jr. College days. In GOD, Andy developed what could be construed as a stream-of-consciousness technique during portions of this work, and it contributes a remarkable means of character portrayal, combining it with the use of mimicry of speech and the parody of literary styles as an overall method. Similar to "The Huey Williams Story", GOD is written in what appears to be the form of an interrupted series of dreams. Symbolizing all humanity, the main character, Tinctured Puncture, his friends, and his acquaintances blend (as characters/images do in dreams) with one another and with various historical and mythical figures.
Strangely, a character named, Larry Prescott, is an allegorical figure representing Elvis Presley.
Judged on it's own merit, GOD is probably nothing more than the inspired work of a stoned sophomore in a high school Creative Writing class. But devoted fans of Andy Kaufman will, no doubt, read this story, smile at each other and nod knowingly, trading in the coinage of a simple tale, acknowledging a shared passion. To see Andy perform this one-man, one-act play live on stage must have been a sight to behold!
Andy's love and devotion to writers such as, Jack Kerouac, Thomas Wolfe and Walt Whitman are present throughout GOD". Many of the pages flow with the beat of a free-flowing prose. Some of his word-play rings true to the sounds of improvisational jazz.
Like his hero Kerouac, Andy's writings are forged and popularized in a jazz-flavor. It is a rebellious and personalized style of prose.
