The emerald light in the air : stories by Donald Antrim( Book )
10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 565 libraries worldwide
"A masterful story collection--heartbreaking and hilarious--from one of America's greatest writers Nothing is simple for the men and women in Donald Antrim's stories. As they do the things we all do--bum a cigarette at a party, stroll with a girlfriend down Madison Avenue, take a kid to the zoo--they're confronted with their own uncooperative selves. These artists, writers, lawyers, teachers, and actors make fools of themselves, spiral out of control, have delusions of grandeur, despair, and find it hard to imagine a future. They talk, they listen, they hope, they dream. They look for communion in a city, both beautiful and menacing, which can promise so much and yield so little. But they are hungry for life. They want to love and be loved. These stories, all published in The New Yorker over the last fifteen years, make it clear that Antrim is one of America's most important writers. His work has been praised by his significant contemporaries, including Jonathan Franzen, Thomas Pynchon, Jeffrey Eugenides, and George Saunders, who described The Verificationist as "one of the most pleasure-giving, funny, perverse, complicated, addictive novels of the last twenty years." And here, at last, is the story collection we have been waiting for, The Emerald Light in the Air, Antrim's best book yet"--

"The O. Henry Prize Stories 2013 gathers twenty of the best short stories of the year, selected from thousands published in literary magazines. The winning stories take place in such far-flung locales as a gorgeous sailboat in Hong Kong, a Cuban sugar plantation, the Kenai River in Alaska, a mansion in New Delhi, a ship torpedoed by a German U-boat, and the ghost-haunted rubble of a Turkish girls' school. Also included are the editor's introduction, essays from the jurors (Lauren Groff, Edith Pearlman, and Jim Shepard) on their favorite stories, observations from the winners on what inspired them, and an extensive resource list of magazines."--Publisher's description
--All the days and nights by Doug DuBois( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 171 libraries worldwide
"Doug DuBois: All the Days and Nights, the artist's first and long-awaited monograph, resonates with diaristic immediacy, offering a potent examination of family relations under stress and what it means to subject personal relationships to the unblinking eye of the camera. Each photograph is rich with color, nuanced gestures and glances, enveloping the viewer in a multivalent, emotionally tense world. DuBois began photographing his family in 1984, prior to his father's near-fatal fall from a commuter train and his mother's subsequent breakdown and hospitalizations. While these events set a narrative backdrop to his work, the emotional freight is carried by the details as described by the artist: "The pallor of my mother's skin, the glare of my father's gaze and the tactile communion between my sister and nephew. These details constitute a complex and resonant picture of family ties ..." More than 20 years later, DuBois' project has developed in remarkable ways."--Jacket
The dead father by Donald Barthelme( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
The Dead Father is a gargantuan half-dead, half-alive, part mechanical, wise, vain, powerful being who still has hopes for himself--even while he is being dragged by means of a cable toward a mysterious goal. In this extraordinary novel, marked by the imaginative use of language that influenced a generation of fiction writers, Donald Barthelme offered a glimpse into his fictional universe. As Donald Antrim writes in his introduction, "Reading The Dead Father, one has the sense that its author enjoys an almost complete artistic freedom ... a permission to reshape, misrepresent, or even ignore the world as we find it ... Laughing along with its author, we escape anxiety and feel alive."
