Norman M. Klein, Freud in Coney Island and Other Tales

 

To enter, one had to pass through “Creation,” a music-hall version of Genesis. Creation began at the mouth of a huge tunnel, featuring the massive thighs and vagina of a plaster nude thirty feet high. Her breasts were larger than haystacks. She sparked at least two sentences. A phrase from one survives, in the recently uncovered Freud Ephemera: “…or do Americans prefer genitalia large enough to crush a man, or at least ruin his hat?”

 

Norman M. Klein is a cultural critic, urban and media historian, and a novelist. His books include: The History of Forgetting: Los Angeles and the Erasure of Memory (1997), Seven Minutes: The Life and Death of the American Animated Cartoon (1996), the data/cinematic novel, Bleeding Through: Layers of Los Angeles, 1920-86 (2003), and The Vatican to Vegas: The History of Special Effects (2004). He is professor of critical studies at CalArts, and an adjunct professor at ULSA and Art Center College of Design.
