The 158-Pound Marriage

The 158-Pound Marriage

Irving, John
New York 2002

Paperback. New.The darker vision and sexual ambiguities of this erotic, ironic tale about a menage a quatre in a New England university town foreshadow those of The World According to Garp; but this very trim and precise novel is a marked departure from the author's generally robust, boisterous style. Though Mr. Irving's cool eye spares none of his foursome, he writes with genuine compassion for the sexual tests and illusions they perpetrate on each other; but the sexual intrigue between them demonstrates how even the kind can be ungenerous, and even the well-intentioned, destructive.

Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf

Alkayat, Zena and Cosford, Nina
London 2015

From Virginia Woolf's idyllic childhood to the formation of the revolutionary Bloomsbury Group, and from the publication of such influential books as A Room of One's Own and Mrs. Dalloway to her 1941 suicide in the River Ouse, this affectionately compiled book recounts the key events of Woolf's life in brief captions, interspersed with quotes from her books. Woolf's relationships with Leonard Woolf and Vita Sackville-West are chronicled here, as is the establishment of Hogarth Press and her often unhappy creative process. Nina Cosford's bright, cheerful paintings are closely correlated to Zena Alkayat's text, creating a petite, beautifully arranged gift book that may also serve as an informative introduction to one of the 20th century's most innovative and respected authors.

Classical Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories

Classical Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories

Brennan, Stephen
New York 2014

This unique collection of stories and excerpts from larger works traces the literary emergence and evolution of science fiction, from celebrated works by Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, and Jules Verne to perhaps unexpected contributions from Nathaniel Hawthorne ("Dr. Heidegger's Experiment," 1837) and Mark Twain (A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, 1889). The 22 works here have left a lasting influence on science fiction, popular culture, and even society itself, including Edgar Allan Poe's "Some Words with a Mummy" (1845) and "The Sphinx" (1850), Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Poison Belt" (1913), Jack London's The Star Rover (1915), and Milo Hastings's City of Endless Night (1919).

Selected Letters from Norman Mailer

Selected Letters from Norman Mailer

Random House, New York, 2014

Over the course of a nearly sixty-year career, Norman Mailer wrote more than 30 novels, essay collections, and nonfiction books. Yet nowhere was he more prolific - or more exposed - than in his letters. All told, Mailer crafted more than 45,000 pieces of correspondence (approximately 20 million words), many of them deeply personal, keeping a copy of almost every one. Now the best of these are published - most for the first time - in one remarkable volume that spans seven decades and, it seems, several lifetimes. Together they form a stunning autobiographical portrait of one of the most original, provocative, and outspoken public intellectuals of the twentieth century.
