Eliot to Derrida : the poverty of interpretation by John Harwood( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
Just as 'Mr. Eliot' was co-opted by Richards, Leavis and the New Critics to serve as their patron saint, so Derrida - perhaps the last person Eliot would have chosen as his successor - became the principal guru of the new theoretical dispensation. And just as the quest for the One True Meaning collapsed under the weight of its inherent contradictions, so the quest for the One True Theory was destined to end in factional brawling between rival personality cults.

In this tantalizing tale of Victorian ghost stories and family secrets, timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mother's drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mother's role in a sinister crime. As he discovers more of Viola's chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his family's mystery--or will they bring about his untimely death, as they seem to foretell? Harwood's astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletons--and stories--can be
The séance by John Harwood( Sound Recording )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Constance Langton grows up in a household marked by death, her father distant, her mother in perpetual mourning for Constance's sister. Desperate to coax her mother back to health, Constance takes her to a séance hoping she will find comfort. But the meeting has tragic consequences. Constance is left alone, her only legacy a mysterious bequest that will blight her life. So begins this gripping, dark mystery set in late-Victorian England. It is a world of apparitions, of disappearances and unnatural phenomena, of betrayal and blackmail and black-hearted villains--and of murder. Constance's bequest comes in two parts: a house and a mystery. Years before, a family disappeared at Wraxford Hall, a decaying mansion in the English countryside with a sinister reputation. Now the Hall belongs to Constance, and she must descend into the darkness at the heart of the Wraxford mystery to find the truth--even at the cost of her life
