"In steel-tipped prose, Craig Davidson conjures a savage world populated by fighting dogs, prizefighters, sex addicts, and gamblers. In his title story Davidson introduces an afflicted boxer whose hand never properly heals after a bone is broken. The fighter's career decends to bouts that have less to do with sport than with survival: no referee, no rules, not even gloves. In A Mean Utility we enter an even more desperate arena: dogfights where Rottweilers, pit bulls, and Dobermans fight each other to the death."--BOOK JACKET

East wind, west wind : Pearl Buck( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

East Wind, West Wind follows the extraordinary life of Pearl Buck (1892-1973), a missionary child who was raised in rural China and developed a deep affection for the Chinese people she lived among. She became one of the most popular American writers of the 20th Century, especially for her best-selling novel, The Good Earth. Through her sympathetic eyes, the harsh life of the Chinese peasantry became vivid for westerners. The film interweaves fascinating early footage of both rural and urban China, with interviews with Asian scholars and her contemporaries. She holds the distinction of being the first American woman to win the Nobel prize, and she used her celebrity to draw attention to many social issues of her time. She was an outspoken advocate for women's rights, civil rights, the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act, mixed race adoption, and tolerance for the mentally retarded

The Saturday night ghost club by Craig Davidson( Book )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A charismatic cast of misfits, losers, and bruisers animate this winning novel set in Niagara Falls, a.k.a. Cataract City--a slightly seedy, slightly magical, slightly haunted place, where seemingly ordinary lives are steeped in secrets, desires, troubled histories, and the occasional splash of mayhem. Like Ilium, New York, in the novels of Kurt Vonnegut, or Castle Rock, New England, in the fiction of Stephen King--or even Hawkins, Indiana, in the Netflix sensation Stranger Things, Cataract City is an invented world where lost innocence mingles with the darker shades and sharper corners of humanity. Saturday Night Ghost Club is a short, irresistible, and bittersweet coming-of-age story about a small group of kids who, under the leadership of an eccentric uncle, spend one summer investigating the validity of local ghost stories and macabre urban myths--in almost every instance getting in way over their heads. With warmth, skill, and striking, cinematic imagery, and a rare gift for conjuring totally original, unexpected, and unforgettable set pieces and tableaus that strike the reader as immediately iconic--Davidson draws us into his gritty world, reminding us that life's strange intensity and occasional magic is all around us."--

The Saturday night ghost club : a novel by Craig Davidson( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An infectious and heartbreaking novel from "one of this country's great kinetic writers" (Globe and Mail)--Craig Davidson's first new literary fiction since his bestselling, Giller-shortlisted Cataract City When neurosurgeon Jake Baker operates, he knows he's handling more than a patient's delicate brain tissue--he's altering their seat of consciousness, their golden vault of memory. And memory, Jake knows well, can be a tricky thing. When growing up in 1980s Niagara Falls, a.k.a. Cataract City--a seedy but magical, slightly haunted place--one of Jake's closest confidantes was his uncle Calvin, a sweet but eccentric misfit enamored of occult artefacts and outlandish conspiracy theories. The summer Jake turned twelve, Calvin invited him to join the "Saturday Night Ghost Club"--A seemingly light-hearted project to investigate some of Cataract City's more macabre urban myths. Over the course of that life-altering summer, Jake not only fell in love and began to imagine his future, he slowly, painfully came to realize that his uncle's preoccupation with chilling legends sprang from something buried so deep in his past that Calvin himself was unaware of it. By turns heartwarming and devastating, written with the skill and cinematic immediacy that has made Craig Davidson a star, The Saturday Night Ghost Club is a bravura performance from one of our most remarkable literary talents: a note-perfect novel that poignantly examines the fragility and resilience of mind, body and human spirit, as well as the haunting mutability of memory and story
