Alexander Solzhenitsyn : a century in his life by D. M Thomas ( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"D. M. Thomas paints a deeply affecting portrait of the intricate relationship between Solzhenitsyn's life and his art, always framing this biography in the context of the historical times." "Indeed, Thomas tells not only the harrowing and sorrowful tale of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's life but also the painful story of Russia itself, a country perpetually at war with itself and its own diverse people. Beginning with the years of Revolution and Civil War, Solzhenitsyn's dramatic life embodies the cruelty, passion, and chaos that have characterized Russian history over the last century. Thomas's account covers extensively all the major periods of the Russian author's remarkable life, from childhood to his years in the Stalinist labor camps, his battle against censorship and his expulsion from the U.S.S.R. in 1974, and his Vermont period and return to a Russia that has shed its Communist cloak but not its dark interior."--BOOK JACKET

Pictures at an exhibition by D. M Thomas ( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pictures at an Exhibition opens in Auschwitz. An S.S. officer, Dr. Lorenz, suffers from severe headaches and calls upon a young Jewish Czech inmate, Galewski, whom he knows to have some understanding of Freudian theory to cure him. Starving and dressed in prison rags, Galewski soon grows accustomed to these c̀ivilized" interludes, during which he is treated to cakes, Mozart, and the Nazi's grotesque dreams. Lorenz, his pain now in periodic abatement, is sufficiently appeased to continue the sessions. More add more dependent on each other, they are soon locked in a danse macabre." "The scene then shifts to London, fifty years, later. A charismatic, aging psychoanalyst and his wife hold court over a sophisticated group of very close friends. They change partners - and identities - living out a baroque Freudian masquerade against a backdrop by Edvard Munch, to music by Gustav Mahler. As they descend, together, into a recurrent nightmare, the legacy of the Holocaust, is revealed as an explosive force in all their lives." "Masterfully suspenseful and powerfully haunting, Pictures at an Exhibition is a return for D.M. Thomas to the dark, provocative themes of The White Hotel."--Jacket

Flying in to love by D. M Thomas ( Book )

The assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy is the haunting subject of D. M. Thomas's Flying in to Love. Reconstructing the events that took place in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Thomas's novel brings back to life the tragedy that left its indelible mark on American history and embroiders it with the author's own lyrical imagination. A literary novel of enormous power, interweaving fact and fiction, it is decidedly his best book since The White Hotel. Thomas paints vivid portraits of the President, Mrs. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, Vice President Lyndon Johnson, and Texas Governor John Connally. He brilliantly explores the continuing obsessions both with Kennedy the man and with the disturbing paradoxes and mysteries of his death. Reality, fantasy. and mythology interlink like the triple underpass in Dealey Plaza. Flying in to Love is D. M. Thomas's most controversial novel yet and a book destined to shock readers and create a sensation

"Summit, an adult fairy-tale, concludes The Russian quartet. the preceding novels are Ararat (1983), Swallow (1984) and Sphinx (1986) ... I have followed an ancient tradition in which a serious trilogy is succeeded by a farcial or satirical coda. Summit therefore stands on its own, requiring from the reader no familiarity with the preceding novels"--P. [5]

Charlotte by D. M Thomas ( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A manuscript is discovered purporting to be the work of Charlotte Bronte. The manuscript, both remarkable and surprising, offers a darker, alternative ending to the story of Jane and Mr. Rochester in the classic Jane Eyre." "Freed from the constraints of Victorian modesty and subservience, D. M. Thomas' modern 'Jane Eyre' is sexually and politically enlightened, but also troubled and sometimes cruel. Jane's damaged personality resonates at the centre of this haunting book." "D. M. Thomas uses the basic elements of Jane Eyre to tease the tangle of Victorian melodrama into a new form. By transporting the action to modern day Martinique, he examines the changing patterns of slavery and colonialism. Pursuing the unforgettable characters of Jane and Rochester through time, D. M. Thomas brings them into focus for the modern reader."--BOOK JACKET
