An unfinished life : a novel by Mark Spragg( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
One of the truest and most original new voices in American letters, as Kent Haruf has written, Mark Spragg now tells the story of a complex, prodigal homecoming. Jean Gilkyson is floundering in a trailer house in Iowa with yet another brutal boyfriend when she realizes this kind of life has got to stop, especially for the sake of her daughter, Griff. But the only place they can run to is Ishawooa, Wyoming, where Jean's loved ones are dead and her father in law, the only person who could take them in, wishes that she was too. For a decade, Einar Gilkyson has blamed her for the accident that took his son's life, and he has chosen to go on living himself largely because his oldest friend couldn't otherwise survive. They've been bound together like brothers since the Korean War and now face old age on a faltering ranch, their intimacy even more acute after Mitch was horribly crippled while Einar helplessly watched. Of course, ten year old Griff knows none of this-only that her father is dead and her mother has bad taste in men. But once she encounters this grandfather she'd never heard about, and the black cowboy confined to the bunkhouse, with irrepressible courage and great spunk she attempts to turn grievous loss, wrath, and recrimination to which she's naturally the most vulnerable toward reconciliation and love. Immediately compelling and constantly surprising, rich in character, landscape, and compassion, An Unfinished Life shows a novelist of extraordinary talents in the fullness of his powers
Reckless by Craig Lucas( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"At home on Christmas Eve, Rachel is informed by her guilty husband that he has hired a hit man to kill her, and she must flee for her life- which she does by scrambling out the kitchen window and into the snowy night. She meets and joins up with Lloyd Bophtelophti, a true "original" who has changed his name to avoid alimony payments and who now lives with a paraplegic named Pootie (who also pretends to be deaf to get double disability). Rachel then wins $100,000 on a TV game show and begins a series of picaresque escapades involving numerous psychiatrists and, eventually, an ill-fated reunion with her own child (who fails to recognise her), and is led more and more to ponder whether the modern world might not be a vast conspiracy designed to systematically undermine her own increasingly shaky sanity."-- (Dramatists Play Service catalog 95/96)

Prelude to a kiss by Norman René( visu )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"A stranger shows up at Peter and Rita's wedding, and, after circulating among the guests, asks to kiss the bride. When he does ... the sick old man trades places, psychically speaking, with the young woman."--A review by Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle, 11/18/88
Serious money ( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"'Serious money' is a social chroicle of the changes wrought in the London financial world by the Thatcherite revolution, a 'Big Bang' of deregulation that opened the doors to a hungry and street-wise new class of traders. It's also amurder mystery: Jake Todd, a back channel for insider tips, is found dead, and his sister, futures trader Schilla Todd, hunts down his rich connections in search of clues. The play's a war story, too: Scilla's quest leads her into the corssfire of a takeover assault that raider Bily Corman has launched against Albion Products and it's insufficiently profit-gouging CEO, Duckett."--A review by Scott Rosenberg, San Francisco Chronicle, 6/8/89
