Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier( Book )

137 editions published between 1846 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Ibbetson is a romantic novel from the late Victorian era - poignant, melancholic and deeply nostalgic, with a paranormal twist. The plot makes use of the idea of a shared lucid dream in bringing together lovers who are otherwise separated in waking reality, by class and circumstance. Although a powerful love story, it also makes for a fascinating speculative exploration of the nature of human consciousness and the meaning and "true" nature of life. -- review by Michael Graeme (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1572836.Peter_Ibbetson)
The Martian : a novel by George Du Maurier( Book )

67 editions published between 1848 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Novels of George Du Maurier : Trilby, the Martians [sic] Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier( Book )

16 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trilby is set in the 1850s in an idyllic bohemian Paris. Though it features the stories of two English artists and a Scottish artist, one of the most memorable characters is Svengali, a Jewish rogue, masterful musician, and hypnotist. Trilby O'Ferrall, the novel's heroine, is a half-Irish girl working in Paris as an artists' model and laundress; all the men in the novel are in love with her... Trilby is literally tone-deaf... Even so, the magician Svengali hypnotizes her and transforms her into a great diva, la Svengali. Under his spell, Trilby becomes a talented singer, performing always in an amnesiac trance... The Martian is a long, largely autobiographical, novel that describes the lives of two bosom friends, Barty Josselin and Robert Maurice, starting from their school days in Paris in the 1850s... Peter Ibbetson is an account of Du Maurier's childhood in France and his early years in London, but its defining characteristic is its melding of the main character's dream life with real life. Ibbetson and the other main character, the Duchess of Towers, after a series of crises, spend the remaining days of their lives entering each other's dreams. --Wikipedia.com & www.enotes.com
