Cavalleria rusticana and other stories by Giovanni Verga( Book )

1 edition published in 1928 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new translation of the stories of Giovanni Verga, the greatest Italian short-story writer since Boccaccio." "Born in 1840 into a well-to-do Sicilian family, in the 1870s Verga became an active observer and habitue of Milanese salon society, but eventually found in the everyday lives of Sicilian peasants the inspiration for his finest narratives. Love, adultery and honour are recurring themes in stories set against the scorched landscapes of the slopes of Mount Etna and the Plain of Catania."--Jacket
Dubliners by James Joyce( Book )

1 edition published in 1926 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of 15 stories provides an introduction to the style and motifs found in Joyce's writing. The stories stand alone as individual scenes of Dublin society and are intertwined by use of autobiography and symbolism."

L'art de voler by A Altarriba( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When published in 2009, The Art of Flying was hailed as a landmark in the history of the graphic novel in Spain for its deeply touching synthesis of individual and collective memories. A deeply personal testament, Altarriba's account of what led his father to commit suicide at the age of ninety is a detective novel of sorts, one that traces his father's life from an impoverished childhood in Aragon, to service with Franco's army in the Civil war, escape to join the anarchist FAI, exile in France when the Republicans are defeated, to return to Spain in 1949 and the stultifying existence to which Republican sympathisers were consigned under Francoism ..."

Twilight in Italy by D. H Lawrence( Book )

1 edition published in 1933 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1912, a young D.H. Lawrence traveled to northern Italy. He spent nearly a year on the shores of Lake Garda, lodged in elegantly decaying houses set amid lemon groves and surrounded by the fading life of traditional Italy. It was here that he wrote Sons and Lovers and here too that we see the early flowering of the prose that would come to define Lawrence' s oeuvre. This is a travel book unlike any other, where landscapes and people are backdrops to Lawrence s deeper wanderings into philosophy, life, nature, religion and the fate of man. With sensuous descriptions of late harvests, darkening days and the fragility of ancient traditions, Twilight in Italy is suffused with nostalgia and premonition. For, looming over the idyll of rural Italy are the arrival of the industrial age and the brewing storm of World War I; upheavals that would change the face of Europe forever."
The pride of the Peak by Ethel Bassett GALLIMORE( Book )

1 edition published in 1926 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gentle captain by A. Kennard Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fergus, a novel by Brian Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novel based somewhat on Moore's own experience with working on Alfred Hitchcock's "Torn Curtain." The character Bernard Boweri is an unsympathetic portrait of Hitchcock. The story revolves around a successful Irish writer who is brought to California to produce a film script. The bulk of the book is made up of literal hauntings from ghosts of the lead character's past, which seem to be manifestations of the author's Catholic sense of guilt

1 edition published in 1927 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The following articles were put into story form for the mother so as to enable her to make the truth and facts just as interesting to a child's imagination as possible."--Page [4]
