Alien creature : a visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen by Linda Griffiths( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"Gwendolyn MacEwen was to many a mesmerising presence. In less than twenty-six years, she published twenty books and became, with Margaret Atwood, the most celebrated Canadian poet of her day. Then, in 1987, at forty-six, she was dead; many suspected suicide." "Alien Creature: A Visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen is inspired by MacEwen's life and work, yet is an entirely new creation. MacEwen, as evoked by Griffiths, returns to a modern world one night, bringing images and a prophetic warning. There has been a death of poetry, of imagination. The city will pay. The world will pay. Then she laughs, opens her hands, pulling brilliant scarves from the air. On this night, MacEwen is torn apart by her magic, made invincible by her magic."--Jacket

Age of arousal by Linda Griffiths( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
It's a time of passion and confusion. Virtue is barely holding down its petticoats. People are bursting their corsets with unbridled desire. It's 1885 - the typewriter and the Suffragettes are sending things topsy-turvy. In the midst of it all, five ambitious New Women and one Newish Man struggle to find their way. Miss Mary Barfoot runs a school for secretaries with her young lover, Miss Rhoda Nunn. But when the Misses Madden - spinsters Virginia and Alice and beautiful young Monica - arrive, along with the charismatic Everard Barfoot, suddenly all the characters are erupting with discoveries, contradictions, epiphanies. -- Back cover

When Zach’s best friend, Micky, begins to spend more time around the house, bonding with Dan and flirting with Marion, even Keira cannot anticipate the depth of Zach’s rage and sense of alienation. Will his repressed feelings culminate in a violent act that is sure to go viral?"--Publisher
