Higher gossip : essays and criticism by John Updike( Book )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of the eloquent, insightful, and beautifully written prose works that Updike was compiling when he died in January 2009, this book opens with a self-portrait of the writer in winter--a Prospero who, though he fears his most dazzling performances are behind him, reveals himself in every sentence to be in deep conversation with the sources of his magic
Early novels and stories by William Maxwell( Book )

17 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The novelist works with what life has given him," wrote William Maxwell. "It was no small gift that I was allowed to lead my boyhood in a small town in Illinois where the elm trees cast a mixture of light and shade over the pavements." The patterns of light, love, and a sorrow in this town, and the domestic particulars of the early 20th century, are at the heart of Maxwell's early fiction. They Came Like Swallows is the story of two boys, their father, and the unbearable loss they suffer in the winter of 1918. The Folded Leaf describes the arc of an obsessive adolescent friendship that ends in near-tragedy. Time Will Darken It paints a portrait of a small, straitlaced community where gossip can ruin even its most blameless member. The achievement of these novels is here complemented by the youthful, comic Bright Center of Heaven - out of print for nearly 70 years - and nine short stories."--Jacket

"Of the eighty-four stories gathered here, fifty-three first appeared in The New Yorker. Most were revised by the author for his collections Problems (1979), Trust Me (1987), The Afterlife (1994), Licks of Love (2000), and My Father's Tears (2009). All were written from 1976 to 2008, when Updike was in his mid-forties to mid-seventies, and are arranged here, for the first time, in the order in which they were completed. Each is offered in its latest, definitive text, and some incorporate posthumous corrections found in Updike's personal copies of his books"--

Selected poems by Karl Shapiro( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A beautiful Selected volume of this masterly writer's poetry, giving us five decades of witty, intimate, and moving poems with the cumulative force of an autobiography in verse. Though John Updike is widely known as one of America's greatest writers of prose, he began and ended his career with books of poems, and between them published six other accomplished collections. Now, six years after Updike's death, Christopher Carduff has selected the best of his lifework in poetry: 132 of his most significant and accomplished poems, from precocious undergraduate efforts to well-known anthology classics to the late-life mastery of the blank-verse sonnet sequence "Endpoint." Art, nature, popular culture, foreign travel, erotic love, and personal history--these recurring topics provided the poet ever-surprising occasions for metaphysical wonder and matchless verbal invention. His Selected Poems is, as fellow-poet Brad Leithauser writes in his introduction, a celebration of American life in the second half of the twentieth century, and no one but Updike "captured upon the page, in prose and in poetry, so much of this passing pageant. That he did so with brio and delight and nimbleness is yet another reason to celebrate our noble celebrant.""--
