The Oxford book of Scottish short stories by Douglas Dunn( Book )

37 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the ghostly and unlikely, to pungent social realism, and from the comfortable to the challenging, whether rural or urban, supernatural or true-to-life, this anthology shows the vitality of the Scottish short story ... The collection includes such wonderful traditional tales as 'The Wee Bannock'. It contains household names such as Sir Walter Scott, the pioneer of the modern literary story, and Robert Louis Stevenson. The Kailyard School is usually excluded from anthologies of this kind; but there are stories here by J.M. Barrie, Ian MacLaren, and S.R. Crockett, as well as work by writers as varied as John Davidson, Violet Jacob, Neil Gunn, Eric Linklater, Lewis Grassic Gibbon, Muriel Spark, Alasdair Gray, and James Kelman. Younger writers are strongly represented; among them such talents as Ronald Frame, Janice Galloway, and A.L. Kennedy ... The selection reveals a series of remarkable contrasts between urban and rural, demotic Scots vernacular and elegant English prose, the sentimental and the critical, the supernatural and the realistic. With an informative introductory essay by Douglas Dunn, the book presents a superb selection of the best of Scottish writing"--Jacket

Dante's drum-kit by Douglas Dunn( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terza rima, the form which Douglas Dunn calls 'Dante's drum-kit', supplies him with the structure for his own meditation on the afterlife, 'Disenchantments'. Other poems in this book are evidence of the author's dazzling technical adroitness, which is matched, furthermore, by the ambitious range of themes he addresses. High seriousness and high jinks are equally at his command, and readers will welcome a collection which shows the poet of Elegies and Northlight performing with undiminished energy and stylishness."--Jacket

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author of the New York Times bestseller White Girl Problems and Psychos, Babe Walker, faces her most daunting challenge yet--suburbia--in the third caustically witty White Girl Problems book. Babe Walker thought she had done it all. After all, she's survived the highly exclusive social hierarchies of Bel Air, traipsed around Europe in true white-girl fashion, and left her mark on several of the best rehab facilities in the United States. But now Babe is about to enter a terrifying new world: Middle America. After a freak accident that was definitely not Babe's fault, her estranged mother offers her the perfect escape from LA: an invite to her grandfather's eightieth birthday party in Maryland, of all places. Babe's journey throws her headlong into elementary school classrooms full of small, unfashionable people and pizza buffet restaurants that will haunt her nightmares and eventually back to Los Angeles, thank goodness. Tossed together with her cousins--basic preteen Cara and mature and preternaturally stylish Knox--Babe learns that connecting with someone on an intimate, familial level might be the most rewarding experience there is ... Besides being thin, of course. Hysterical, unapologetic, and as unfiltered as ever, Babe Walker proves again to be the "urban socialite you love to hate" (Time), and she can only hope the population is ready for American Babe"--
