16 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of food in literature complicates established critical positions.

The frozen ship : the histories and tales of polar exploration by Sarah Moss( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polar expeditions have spawned a literature with its own history and style. The Frozen Ship is a thorough and thought-provoking examination of the most influential, popular, and intriguing accounts of journeys into the eternal ice, from Viking settlers and Renaissance conquerors to Robert Falcon Scott's meticulous account of his own dying, and from the tales of Nansen, Franklin, Parry, and Shackleton to the journals of little-known explorers, missionaries, and archaeologists from Europe and North America. The Frozen Ship considers the morbid fascination of expeditions that went horribly wrong and the even greater interest attached to those that were rescued at the last minute, and pays particular attention to the strange desire to find and even exhume long-lost travelers. Looking at risks ranging from frostbite and polar bears to starvation and cannibalism, it also reflects on the enduring appeal of romanticized frozen landscapes, the link between national identity and planting flags in the ice, the descriptions of indigenous communities and forgotten stories of women at the poles, as well as purely imaginary approaches to polar travel from Frankenstein to Winnie the Pooh. - Publisher description

Bodies of light by Sarah Moss( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bodies of Light is a deeply poignant tale of a psychologically tumultuous nineteenth century upbringing set in the atmospheric world of Pre-Raphaelitism and the early suffrage movement. Ally (older sister of May in Night Waking), is intelligent, studious and engaged in an eternal - and losing - battle to gain her mother's approval and affection. Her mother, Elizabeth, is a religious zealot, keener on feeding the poor and saving prostitutes than on embracing the challenges of motherhood. Even when Ally wins a scholarship and is accepted as one of the first female students to read medicine in London, it still doesn't seem good enough. The first in a two-book sequence, Bodies of Light will propel Sarah Moss into the upper echelons of British novelists. It is a triumphant piece of historical fiction and a profoundly moving master class in characterisation

Adam is a stay-at-home dad who is writing a history of the bombing and rebuilding of Coventry Cathedral. He is a good man and he is happy. But one day, he receives a call from his daughter's school to inform him that, for no apparent reason, fifteen-year-old Miriam has collapsed and stopped breathing. In that moment, his world fractures. Parental love, overwhelming fear, illness and recovery; clever teenagers and the challenges of marriage; sex and gender in the twenty-first century, the balancing of work and family life, the politics of packing lunches and unloading dishwashers... The story of his life and the lives of his family are rewritten and retold around this shocking central event: a body that has inexplicably failed. [source éditeur]
Probabilistic knowledge by Sarah Moss( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sarah Moss argues that in addition to full beliefs, credences can constitute knowledge. She introduces the notion of probabilistic content and shows how it plays a central role not only in epistemology, but in the philosophy of mind and language. Just you can believe and assert propositions, you can believe and assert probabilistic contents

Sommerhelle Nächte Unser Jahr in Island by Sarah Moss( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novelist Sarah Moss had a childhood dream of moving to Iceland, sustained by a wild summer there when she was nineteen. In 2009, she saw an advertisement for a job at the University of Iceland and applied on a whim, despite having two young children and a comfortable life in an English cathedral city. The resulting adventure was shaped by Iceland's economic collapse, which halved the value of her salary, by the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull and by a collection of new friends, including a poet who saw the only bombs fall on Iceland in 1943, a woman who speaks to elves and a chef who guided Sarah's family around the intricacies of Icelandic cuisine. Sarah was drawn to the strangeness of Icelandic landscape, and explored hillsides of boiling mud, volcanic craters and fissures, and the unsurfaced roads that link remote farms and fishing villages in the far north. She walked the coast path every night after her children were in bed, watching the northern lights and the comings and goings of migratory birds. As the weeks and months went by, the children settled in local schools and Sarah got to know her students and colleagues, she and her family learned new ways to live
