Most widely held works by Nathalie Cooke
Margaret Atwood a critical companion by Nathalie Cooke( file )
20 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 2,415 libraries worldwide
"This book offers readers a concise introduction to Margaret Atwood's published novels and the central themes motivating her writing. The volume starts with an overview of the author's biography and the relationship of her writing to relevant literary traditions. Because Atwood is internationally renowned, many commentaries ignore the Canadian roots of her work. Nathalie Cooke corrects this oversight by sketching the ways in which her work is shaped by, and has shaped, the Canadian literary scene. As the author of a full-length Atwood biography, Cooke is able to summarize feminist, Canadian nationalist, and postmodern influences on Atwood's work and on her development as a writer. The book offers close scrutiny of three illustrative works: Cat's Eye as the artist novel, The Handmaid's Tale as a dystopian novel, and The Blind Assassin as a villainess novel."--Jacket

Psyche a novel by Phyllis Brett Young( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
"A child who is the very centre of her parents' life is torn away in the darkness and left to grow up in the hostile hills of the north country. Recognizing that the couple who raised her have nothing more to offer, she leaves with an artist who initiates her into adulthood. "Psyche" is the gripping story of a wealthy urban mother's anguish and powerlessness when her child is kidnapped and the abandoned child's remarkable resilience as she ultimately finds redemption through art, education, and psychology. This 1959 international bestseller by Canadian writer Phyllis Brett Young focuses on issues of character and environment in an unconventional coming of age story that draws the reader into an exploration of the decidedly modern themes of kidnapping, sexual assault, and the sex trade industry."--Book cover
Emily Montague by Frances Brooke( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This epistolary novel is set in Canada just after the English conquest of the French colony during the Seven Years' War. Brooke, already a well-known author and translator, followed her chaplain husband to North America and took up residence there from 1763 to 1768. She penned the novel during her stay in Quebec and appears to have sent the manuscript to London where it was published, possibly in serial form, in 1766 and then as a single volume in 1769. Within a year French editions made their way to bookstores in Paris and Amsterdam -- http://www.historycooperative.org/journals/wm/64.4/crane.html
