Critical times : the history of the Times literary supplement by Derwent May( Book )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 374 libraries worldwide
"Critical Times is a dramatic and entertaining history of one of the great literary journals of the world, the Times Literary Supplement. Derwent May unfolds a hundred years of controversy and wit, from the paper's first appearance in the great epoch of Edwardian journalism in 1902, to its role as the voice of contemporary thought." "Revealed here are the identities of the hundreds of anonymous figures who reviewed for the paper, from T.S. Eliot and Aldous Huxley to George Orwell and Anthony Powell. We see the tentative first writings of Miss V.A. Stephen evolve into the magisterial essays of Virginia Woolf; venomous spats between historians; the emergence of new novelists such as Salman Rushdie and Martin Amis, the mocking reviews with which the first poems of Ezra Pound were greeted, and the review of Evelyn Waugh's first book in which he was described throughout as 'she'."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
"From dainty avocets prancing along the seashore to panic-stricken waxwings frenziedly gobbling berries, from barking barnacle geese to soaring skylarks, Derwent May writes about birds in a very special way. As he goes in search of birdlife in a variety of places - the English lanes and rolling corn fields that he loves, the lonely Essex marshes, the remote bird-haunted islands of Grassholm and Fair Isle - May reveals just what it feels like to be a birdwatcher. With him, the reader will experience the excitement of fresh discoveries, the peace and contentment that birds can bring and the comedy to be found both in the behaviour of birds and the human response to them."-- Cover
