The house of mirth by Terence Davies( Visual )

39 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story takes place at the opening of a new century, one that held forth all kinds of promises, especially for women. In this post-Victorian Fifth Avenue milieu, Lily Bart, an unmarried woman of 29 with dwindling prospects, needs a husband badly. She lives beyond her means, relying on the grudging charity of her elderly aunt. She is the kind of girl who would make an admirable decoration on some fine gentleman's arm, but there is a liveliness--a knowingness--in her eyes that alarms potential suitors. Lily is unsuccessful in her search for a haven, because she values her emotional and financial independence. To her eternal sorrow, it is other women, the doyennes of high society, who obliquely, ruthlessly, keep that independence forever out of poor Lily's reach

Distant voices, still lives by Terence Davies( Visual )

40 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An impressionistic view of a working-class family in 1940s and 1950s Liverpool, based on Davies's own family. The first part, Distant voices, opens with grown siblings Eileen, Maisie, and Tony, and their mother arranged in mourning clothes before the photograph of their smiling father. Soon after, the family poses in a similar tableau, but for a happier occasion--Eileen's wedding. While relatives sing at her reception, Eileen hysterically grieves for her dad, and recalls happy times of her youth. Tony and Maisie's memories, however, are more troubled. ... In Still lives, set (and filmed) two years later, the siblings are settled in life, but not all happily. For Eileen, relief from her drab existence comes only when singing at the pub."

Die Geschichte des Robert Tucker in drei Kapiteln: "Children" zeigt den etwa zehnjährigen Robert, Kind einer katholischen Arbeiterfamilie, in einer tristen englischen Industriestadt. Im zweiten Teil arbeitet der erwachsene, homosexuelle Tucker als Büroangestellter, nachts sucht er sexuelle Befriedigung in öffentlichen Pissoirs. In "Tod und Verklärung" liegt der alte Mann gedankenverloren in Erinnerungen im Krankenhaus. Das Debüt des Briten Terence Davies ist eine gnadelose, beklemmend autobiographisch inspirierte Passionsgeschichte eines ungelebten Lebens, voller Selbsthaß und Schuldgefühl: eine künstlerische Erinnerungsarbeit
