    Author William Vollman Shares Vision By Michelle Goldberg AlterNet . Posted October 24, 2000
    "One expects William Vollmann, swashbuckling whoredog, war correspondent, quixotic freedom fighter, gun aficionado and fiction prodigy, to be gruff and imperious. Yet, out of all the many writers I've interviewed, he's probably the only one who, after giving long, considered answers, looks at me and asks "what do you think?" Tools

    By Dixie Reid -
    Print E-Mail Digg it ... Sacramento author William T. Vollman, who two years ago won a National Book Award, has received yet another prestigious prize. The American Academy of Arts and Letters announced Wednesday that he will be given a $250,000 Strauss Living, to be doled out in five equal installments over the next five years. The idea is to allow writers the freedom to write without worry of supporting themselves. "I accept the Strauss Living with gratitude and relief," Vollmann told academy members. "... It is this tremendous gift which will allow me to focus on what I truly want to do for five years." Baltimore-based novelist Madison Smartt Bell also received a Strauss Living. The awards are conferred every five years. Vollmann, who is currently out of the country and could not be reached for comment, won the National Book Award for "Europe Central," a collection of short stores about Russia and Germany during World War II.

    My recent quiz on celebrity photographers failed to mention William T. Vollmann. Vollman doesn’t have a website or, for that matter, use the internet or email. Not surprisingly, he isn’t a big fan of digital photography. In a recent interview in BookForum , he says: Vollmann has traveled the world (and continues to spend time as a train hobo), written around sixty books (including a seven-volume, 3300 page treatise on violence) has a wife and child and still has time to mix in some painting and alternative process photography. He doesn’t pursue any of it lightly. One example here Q : As part of the research for The Royal Family, you smoked crack, by your own admission, about a hundred times. Is something like that simply a matter of wanting to be able to write from a more experiential perspective, rather than simply observational? Vollmann I’ve hunted around the web and can’t seem to find any of his photographs (can anyone help?). The only thing I found were some examples of his artwork This entry was posted on Monday, February 19th, 2007 at 2:11 am and is filed under

    Online Edition: Winter 2001/2002 Argall William T. Vollmann Viking ($40) by Jason Picone See William Vollmann. His tousled hair complements his still boyish face, which retains a youthful look despite the author's mustache and 40 something years. Decked out in a well-worn windbreaker that he keeps on for the entire event, Vollmann reads from his latest novel, Argall , the third volume (though fourth to be published) in his acclaimed Seven Dreams For a man who has shot off blanks during his readings in order to ensure the audience's attention, Vollmann appears to be an unassuming individual. His apparent modesty may have led him to take the moniker William the Blind, who is ostensibly the narrator of Argall . At first glance, the legendary story at the heart of the Third Dreamthe relationship of John Smith and Pocahontasmay appear to be an odd subject for a seven-hundred-page novel, but the instability of the Virginia colony and the role of these two historical figures in its survival is far from straightforward. The intriguing mix of political maneuvering, uneasy peace, and savage conflict between the English and the Native Americans under King Powhatan, Pocahontas's father, lends itself to a fascinating and complex fiction. Under the guise of William the Blind, Vollmann gives an imaginative account of Smith and Pocahontas that never pretends to be historically authoritative. At the beginning of

    Approaching History: The Works of William Vollman
    By Mike Lenz
      Facts are but the Play-things of lawyers,Tops and Hoops, forever a-spin... Alas, the Historian may indulge no such idle Rotating. History is not Chronology, for that is left to lawyers,nor is it Remembrance, for Remembrance belongs to the People. History can as little pretend to the Veracity of the one, as claim the Power of the other,her Practitioners, to survive, must soon learn the arts of the quidnunc, spy, and Taproom Wit,that there may ever continue more than one life-line back into a Past we risk, each day, losing our forebears in forever,not a Chain of single Links, for one broken Link could lose us All,rather, a great disorderly Tangle of Lines, long and short, weak and strong, vanishing into the Mnemonick Deep, with only their Destination in common. Tomas Pynchon,

    In his ambitious Seven Dreams series, William T. Vollmann toys with the novelist's role as historian. The series is a fictional rewriting of the history of North America. Though fictional in genre, Vollmann incorporates thorough research ( Fathers and Crows contains a 120 page appendix of glossaries and notes) and, like Pynchon, an academic awareness to critical method.

    The Royal Family
    by William T. Vollman
    Viking Press 672 pages
    Review by Karl Erickson In The Gift, Lewis Hyde writes of the difference between an act being done as a gift, with all of its connotations of connection, responsibility and community, and as a service, which is done in exchange, usually for money. A gift, most commonly seen in native cultures and small social organizations (such as families) stresses the binding continuance. The service on the other hand can be seen perhaps most easily in today’s’ world of doctors, social workers and psychiatrists, who help others out, but have a buffer between provider and receiver. With a gift one is, in a sense, obligated to return the favor, creating a continuous cycle-an ongoing relationship that is not easily broken. A service is usually a one shot deal, with no ongoing connection. The cash transfer takes care of all obligations. With a service there is neither need nor desire for continued intimacy. William T. Vollman’s

    As part of Slate's stellar series of William T. Vollman , a remarkably vole -like man, paid a visit to Norway. (Quick recap: The guides explore a place, usually a city, though sometimes a country, through its literature.) Vollman does this but more notably, explores Norway through naked Norwegians. From the second graf: Recently, I hired an artist's model to pose as the seeress in "Volusp¡"...and as she lay there nude before me she began to recite from that ancient poem.
    I'm betting she recited that part of the old Norwegian classic: There once was a girl from Norway

RSS Font: S S+ S++ Norway's lands, like Hawaii's beaches, remain legally open to all. So it was that this spring, on my first visit to the ancestral homeland, my Norwegian editor, Jon Erik, could take me to an ancient burial mound on private land. A man was mowing the lawn. Jon Erik chatted with him for a moment, and then led me to a bulkhead door in the side of the hill; we might have been entering a New England potato cellar. The passageway was lined with stone. We went deep into the darkness to the central chamber; then Jon Erik activated the flashlight on his cellphone to show me the sad details of eternity. The vault was empty, the skeleton with its related artifacts having long since been removed to a museum, but Jon Erik said that on his uncle's property there also rose a mound, and his uncle was not going to let anybody open that one.
