The stories of John Cheever by John Cheever( Book )

From the Publisher: When The Stories of John Cheever was originally published, it became an immediate national bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize. In the years since, it has become a classic. Vintage Books is proud to reintroduce this magnificent collection. Here are sixty-one stories that chronicle the lives of what has been called "the greatest generation." From the early wonder and disillusionment of city life in "The Enormous Radio" to the surprising discoveries and common mysteries of suburbia in "The Housebreaker of Shady Hill" and "The Swimmer," Cheever tells us everything we need to know about "the pain and sweetness of life."

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
No other life by Brian Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Father Paul Michel, a Canadian missionary on the desperately poor Caribbean island of Ganae, rescues a black child from abject poverty and sets him on a road toward a dramatic and dangerous future as a revolutionary Catholic priest and, later, as the first democratically elected leader in a land of dictators and despair." "Jeannot, as Father Paul calls him, is young and brilliant, a messianic orator, who bravely urges his black brethren to rise against their oppressors. His actions alarm the Vatican in Rome, and make deadly enemies of the cynical Ganaean bishops, the light-skinned elite, and the ruling military junta." "Even Father Paul, who tells this story, is unsure of Jeannot's true motives. His enemies will stop at nothing - assassination, arson, brutal repression - to destroy him."--Jacket
