After The War - The Novel And England Since 1945, D.J. Taylor

Flamingo 231530 Great Britain 1994 0006547532 / 9780006547532 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket What has gone wrong with English novels? Why do they seem so feeble compared to the Victorian greats? Is it the fault of the writing or the fragmented modern world the writers try to capture? D.J. Taylor asks these tough, fundamental questions. Following his reading of a host of authors - Waugh and Powell, Kingsley Amis, Malcolm Bradbury, John Fowles, A.S. Byatt and many more - readers can trace, in this account of modern fiction, a particular tradition and even define the "Thatcherite" novel. It is also possible to look at history differently, from the post-war dreams to the nineties recession. 310 pages. Light browning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Books About Books; Books on Books; ISBN: 0006547532. ISBN/EAN: 9780006547532. Inventory No: 231530. Paperback

You've Got To Read This Book! 55 People Tell The Story of the Book That Changed Their Life, Jack Canfield & Gay Hendricks
15 Jack Canfield & Gay Hendricks You've Got To Read This Book! 55 People Tell The Story of the Book That Changed Their Life
HarperCollins 233422 New York 2007 0060891696 / 9780060891695 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition There's nothing better than a book you can't put down—or better yet, a book you'll never forget. This book puts the power of transformational reading into your hands. Jack Canfield, cocreator of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul (R) series, and self-actualization pioneer Gay Hendricks have invited notable people to share personal stories of books that changed their lives. What book shaped their outlook and habits? Helped them navigate rough seas? Spurred them to satisfaction and success? The contributors include Dave Barry, Stephen Covey, Malachy McCourt, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Mark Victor Hansen, John Gray, Christiane Northrup, Bernie Siegel, Craig Newmark, Michael E. Gerber, Lou Holtz, and Pat Williams, to name just a few. Their richly varied stories are poignant, energizing, and entertaining.Author and actor Malachy McCourt tells how a tattered biography of Gandhi, stumbled on in his youth, offered a shining example of true humility—and planted the seeds that would help support his sobriety decades later. Bestselling author and physician Bernie Siegel, M.D., tells how William Saroyan's The Human Comedy helped him realize that, in order to successfully treat his patients with life-threatening illnesses, "I had to help them live—not just prevent them from dying."Actress Catherine Oxenberg reveals how, at a life crossroads and struggling with bulimia, a book taught her the transforming difference one person could make in the life of another—and why that person for her was Richard Burton.Rafe Esquith, the award-winning teacher whose inner-city students have performed Shakespeare all over the world, recounts his deep self-doubt in the midst of his success—and how reading To Kill a Mockingbird strengthened him to continue teaching.Beloved librarian and bestselling author Nancy Pearl writes how, at age ten, Robert Heinlein's science fiction book Space Cadet impressed on her the meaning of personal integrity and gave her a vision of world peace she'd never imagined possible. Two years later, she marched in her first civil rights demonstration and learned that there's always a way to make "a small contribution to intergalactic harmony."If you're looking for insight and illumination—or simply for that next great book to read-You've Got to Read This Book! has treasures in store for you 286 pages.
