The conscience of James Joyce by Darcy O'Brien( Book )
25 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,096 libraries worldwide
James Joyce, the great and bold literary innovator of our time, was also a rebel in life, a self-exile from family, nation, and religion. Criticism of Joyce, when it has not been purely technical, has sought in Joyce's work ideas as radical as his techniques and as rebellious as his life. Mr. O'Brien discovers that Joyce was neither morally revolutionary nor morally neutral. Instead, Joyce emerges as an Irishman clinging to a conception of human nature largely derived from the Irish Catholic background he so vehemently denounced. In this study of Joyce's work, from his early poems through Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, Mr. O'Brien argues that Joyce eventually achieved, in his books, a comic perspective on the follies of mankind. Originally published in 1968. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.

Margaret in Hollywood by Darcy O'Brien( Book )
8 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and Korean and held by 363 libraries worldwide
Back in the days when Shakespeare still meant something to a lot of people, I wanted to be a great dramatic actress. Before I knew it I was in Hollywood-- So begins this remarkable novel, in which Margaret Spencer tells us of her own journey from the vaudeville stage of the Midwest, to performing as a child in Buenos Aires, through sexual awakenings to Broadway success, and her arrival, against her will, in the Hollywood of 1927. I was only one among numberless hordes of fatherless girls who, with mothers pinching at their elbows, had descended onto Hollywood as the fruit flies on the citrus groves. But Margaret is anything but ordinary. Feisty, lusty, tart-tongued, willing to use her body as well as her brains to stay afloat, Margaret has her mind and heart set on liberation in every sense of the world. She demands freedom: sexual, artistic, and financial and her battle to achieve it makes her a heroine well ahead of her time. Margaret in Hollywood is the tale of a young woman who refuses to be owned and will not be cowed, and whose love of life propels her onward

He never knows
The Hillside stranglers by Darcy O'Brien( Book )
4 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
For weeks in the fall of 1977, as the body count of sexually violated, brutally murdered young women escalated, the Los Angeles newspapers headlined the increasingly alarming deeds of a serial killer they named the Hillside Strangler. But it would take more than another year and the mysterious disappearance of two young women in Seattle before the police would arrest one man?the handsome, charming, fast-talking Kenny Bianchi?and discover that the strangler was actually two men. Like Truman Capote in In Cold Blood and Norman Mailer in The Executioner's Song, Darcy O'Brien weds the narrative skill of an award-winning novelist with the detailed observations of an experienced investigator to bring the story of Bianchi and his animally magnetic cousin Angelo Buono vividly to the page. First exploring the symbiotic relationship between these two men who shared a lust as insatiable as their hate for women, O'Brien goes on to examine the crimes themselves and the lives of the victims
Murder in Little Egypt by Darcy O'Brien( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
"To his patients and friends in Little Egypt, a region of southern Illinois, Dr. John Dale Cavaness was a beloved and admired medical practitioner -- a selfless humanitarian who often treated patients without charge. Very few people outside of his family knew about the other side of 'the good doctor': that he was a sadistic Jekyll-Hyde personality who beat his wife, terrorized his sons, and carried on a tumultuous private life of boozing, brawling, womanizing and disastrous financial schemes. The dark side of Dr. Cavaness was starkly revealed in 1984, when he was arrested for the murder of his 22-year-old son, Sean. Police investigators and a brilliant, relentless prosecutor also suspected Cavaness in another horrible killing -- the unsolved shooting death of Mark, his firstborn son, seven years earlier."--Packaging

10 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 28 libraries worldwide
In The Hidden Pope, author Darcy O'Brien offers the account of the extraordinary relationship of Karol Wojtyla and Jerzy Kluger--their boyhood in the small Polish town of Wadowice, their separation at the beginning of World War II, their individual experiences under Nazi and Soviet tyranny, and their reunion almost thirty years later that deepened their friendship and made a profound impact on the history of our time. Set in the perspective of monumental reconciliation between Christianity and Judaism, this is a portrait of John Paul II that describes him as only his closest friends know him and as no pope has ever been portrayed before. Readers will come to know the Holy Father as a man and to understand his most controversial ideas as expressions of his dramatic experience of life
