Provincetown Through Time II is the follow-up to the top selling Provincetown Through Time; ever popular with locals and visitors alike. It is the continued comparison view with collective imagery that reinforces the point that "a yellowed photo is a captured memory of those long gone". These memories illuminate and tell the history of Provincetown and provide a clearer idea on where one is in that timeline of this truly most interesting "town". With a history like no other in America, Provincetown already had been the sacred ground of Thorwald, the Icelandic Viking in 1004. But beginning in the seventeenth, it evolved through a five centuries continuum; it would become the first to welcome the Pilgrims before they traveled on to that "Rock" they're always talking about. It would become the largest whaling and British Revolutionary War staging port, the largest artist colony and producer of more Pulitzer Prizes for its combined literatures before being dubbed the most popular gay resort in the world. The Provincetown Film Festival kicks off the summer season every year, and grows with the annual blessing of the Portuguese fishing fleet. It seems to hit its stride by the 4th of July, "Bear Week" and "Carnival"-P'town's take on Marti Gras-with its "fabulous" parade and winds up with the "over the top" Halloween Costume Ball. All of this under the glow of a 252 foot granite block illuminated Pilgrim's Monument, a replicated fourteenth century Italian tower. What is phenomenal, it is still a quaint little New England seaside fishing village!

Provincetown Through Time III is the continuing visual history of the top selling Provincetown Through Time I & II, ever popular with locals and visitors alike. Its comparison views, with collective imagery, reinforce the point that "a yellowed photo is a captured memory of those long gone." These memories illuminate and tell the tale of Provincetown, providing a clearer exploration on the timeline of this truly most interesting "town." With a history like no other town in America, Provincetown already had been the sacred burial ground of Thorwald, the Icelandic Viking in 1004. But beginning in the seventeenth, it evolved through a five-centuries continuum; it would become the first to welcome the Pilgrims 400 years ago before traveling on to that "Rock" they're always talking about. It would become the largest whaling and British Revolutionary War staging port, the largest artist colony and producer of more Pulitzer Prizes for its combined literatures before being dubbed the most popular gay resort in the world. The Provincetown Film Festival kicks off the summer season every year, and progresses with the annual blessing of the Portuguese fishing fleet. It seems to hit its stride by the 4th of July, "Bear Week" and "Carnival," a P'town take on Marti Gras with its "fabulous" parade, and winds up with the "over the top" Halloween Costume Ball. All of this under the glow of a 252-foot granite block illuminated Pilgrim's Monument, a replicated fourteenth-century Italian tower that during "Holly Folly" and the help of a multitude of strings of colorful lights becomes the tallest Holiday Tree on the Cape. What is phenomenal, it is still a quaint little New England seaside fishing village!

Tennesse Williams in Provincetown is the story of Tennesse Williams' four summer seasons in Provincetown, Massachusetts: 1940, '41, '44 and '47. During that time he wrote plays, short stories, and jewel-like poems. In Provincetown Williams fell in love unguardedly for perhaps the only time in his life. He had his heart broken there, perhaps irraparably. The man he thought might replace his first lover tried to kill him there, or at least Williams thought so. Williams drank in Provincetown, he swam there, and he took conga lessons there. He was poor and then rich there; he was photographed naked and clothed there. He was unknown and then famous--and throughout it all Williams wrote every morning. The list of plays Williams worked on in Provincetown include The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, Summer and Smoke, the beginnings of The Night of the Iguana and Suddenly Last Summer, and an abandoned autobiographical play set in Provincetown, The Parade. Tennessee Williams in Provincetown collects original interviews, journals, letters, photographs, accounts from previous biographies, newspapers from the period, and Williams' own writing to establish how the time Williams spent in Provincetown shaped him for the rest of his life. The book identifies major themes in Williams' work that derive from his experience in Provincetown, in particular the necessity of recollection given the short season of love. The book also connects Williams mature theatrical experiments to his early friendships with Jackson Pollack, Lee Krasner and the German performance artist Valeska Gert. Tennessee Williams in Provincetown, based on several years of extensive research and interviews, includes previously unpublished photographs, previously unpublished poetry, and anecdotes by those who were there.

Time And The Town

Author : Mary Heaton Vorse

Time and the Town was the last of Mary Heaton Vorse's books. It is about many things--a town and its people, the author, a certain kind of idyllic life. As much as anything else, it is the biography of the house Vorse bought in 1907 and lived in, off and on, for the next thirty-six years. The moods of the house mirrored her own. "Our houses," she wrote, "are our biographies, the stories of our defeats and victories." Tinged with nostalgia and disenchantment, the book describes a Provincetown that has changed, a place on the verge of modernity. It is no longer a major fishing port. It has become a place whose business is tourism. Contrasting the old and the new, Vorse celebrates the enduring character of the town itself. She tells stories that are engaging and charming, droll and fabulous. The wrinkled Mrs. Mary Mooncusser who, though drunk and stark naked, conducts herself with great decorum when Vorse pays her a call, might have stepped out of the pages of Sherwood Anderson or Eudora Welty. In another anecdote, the townspeople scour the beaches for cases of booze dumped into the sea by rumrunners and are briefly inflated with the spirit of ancestral smugglers and buccaneers. Vorse herself remained something of an outsider in Provincetown, despite her evident affection for the place and its inhabitants. They surely regarded her as simply another of those artist-intellectuals--many of whom appear in the pages of this book. The "off-Cape" outsiders put the town in the national limelight but took no interest in local matters. Vorse here ponders local matters exclusively, almost, one suspects, as a way of forgetting the more complex matters that occupied her--her agonies of parental guilt, her resentment of domestic obligations, her third marriage, her depressions and breakdowns. The town is in that sense beyond time.

James C. McCurrach was born in Brooklyn, New York and was the namesake of a self made business success story. He had a privileged upbringing that included a succession of private schools culminating in a B.A. from Brown University in Providence, R.I. He traveled a circuitous route as an adult - a journey that included tennis, a Vice Presidency at the former Bankers Trust Company in New York City as well as the principal in a New York restaurant. After many personal hurdles, he finally succeeded in his original goal of a teaching career. Additionally, his work assisting foreign students in the English language resulted in the publication of two English textbooks for English beginners in Japan and Korea. He is a former squash racquets champion with numerous top ten rankings in various age categories. He resides in San Francisco with his partner of 29 years. This Memoir is dedicated to P. Justin Jacobs for his loyalty, support and continuing encouragement. A troubled youth in search of direction finds himself groping to find his place despite numerous obstacles centering about his Father looking for a duplicate. Such are some of the problems facing James C. McCurrach Jr. as he passes through his early childhood years and the social upheavals encountered on the path to a new century. All of this is complicated by his growing uncertainty of his sexual proclivities at a time when homosexuality was ridiculed and considered a deviancy beyond the pale. At the same time, his Fathers' influence was a constant presence that would lead to a series of disasters, both socially and financially. Despite trying to throw off his Father's yoke, there remained a continuing need to please him and establish some sort of positive approval resulting in a series of tumultuous relationships and career moves. His Mom had always told the youngster that he would be a late bloomer and indeed that prediction would come to pass as in his later years the teaching profession would provide the purpose and rewards that had long eluded him.

Provincetown, one of the most idiosyncratic and extraordinary towns in the United States, perched on the sandy tip at the end of Cape Cod, has been amenable and intriguing to outsiders for as long as it has existed. 'It is one of the places in the world you can disappear into. It is the Morocco of North America, the New Orleans of the north.' Michael Cunningham first came to the place more than twenty years ago, falling in love with the haunted beauty of its seascape and the rambunctious charm of its denizens. As well as a summer mecca of stunning beaches, quirky shops, and wild nightlife, and a popular destination for gay men and lesbians, it is also a place of deep and enduring history, artistic and otherwise. Few towns have attracted such an impressive array of artists and writers - from Tennessee Williams to Eugene O'Neill, Mark Rothko to Robert Motherwell - who, like Cunningham, were attracted to this finger of land because it was...different. As we follow Cunningham on his various excursions through Provincetown and its surrounding landscape, we are drawn into its history, its mysteries, its peculiarities - places you won't read about in any conventional travel guide.
