Willie Masters' lonesome wife by William H Gass( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
In this homage to the pleasures of language, William Gass equates his text with the body of Babs Masters, the lonesome wife of the title, to explore the relationship between a woman and her lover, as well as a book and its reader. Disappointed by her inattentive husband/reader, Babs engages in an exuberant display of the physical charms of language to entice both her new lover and the reader

Sister Carrie : a novel by Lauren Fairbanks( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
Depraved characters parade themselves and their crass literary leanings; many keep journals, out of which Carrie is revealed with stylistic pyrotechnics. Fairbanks's scrappy, fantastic, debauched characters reveal themselves as well in hot rapid monologue and dialogue

Theory of prose by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Viktor Shklovsky's 1925 book Theory of Prose might have become the most important work of literary criticism in the twentieth century had not two obstacles barred its way: the crackdown by the Soviet dictatorship on Shklovsky and other Russian Formalists in the 1930s, and the unavailability of an English translation. Now translated in its entirety for the first time, Theory of Prose not only anticipates structuralism and post-structuralism, but poses questions about the nature of fiction that are as provocative today as they were in the 1920s. Arguing that writers structure their material according to artistic principles rather than from attempts to imitate "reality," Shklovsky uses Cervantes, Tolstoi, Sterne, Dickens, Bely, and Rozanov to give us a new way of thinking about fiction and, in his most impassioned moments, about the world. Benjamin Sher's lucid translation will allow Shklovsky's Theory of Prose to fulfill its destiny as a major theoretical work of the twentieth century." from back cover
15 journeys : Warsaw to London by Jasia Reichardt( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A memoir recounting her experiences during World War II in Poland using her family's collection of letters. "These fifteen journeys -- fourteen of them within Poland -- take six years, 1940--1946. The distances vary. Sometimes they are minimal, as short as a two-stop bus ride in a city, or a twenty-minute walk, and sometimes they are longer -- much longer. The traveler is a young girl, who we meet at age seven. Along the way, she loses her home, her family, her name, her hair, and finally, her fear. Two things help her on her journeys during these difficult years: some lessons from her parents and a large share of luck, which never deserts her."
