To An Early Grave

Lannan Selections
Wallace Markfield

When Leslie Braverman passes away at the early age of 41, four of his closest friends are reunited on an odyssey through the streets of Brooklyn in a beat-up Volkswagen searching for the funeral parlor. In a series of fits, starts and wrong-turns, the comedic banter that suffuses the journey of these four Jewish proponents of New Criticism and little-magazine writing is quietly transformed into a quest for the intellectual, emotional and sentimental aura of the past.

The basis for the 1968 movie Bye Bye Braverman, To An Early Grave is a testament to the exuberant inventiveness of Wallace Markfield’s writing.
