Vintage, Great Britain, 2006. 
 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. . A collection of essays on America by the author of London Fields, Money and Yellow Dog. At the age of ten, when Martin Amis spent a year in Princeton, New Jersey, he was excited and frightened by America. As an adult he has approached that confusing country from many arresting angles, and interviewed its literati, filmmakers, thinkers, opinion makers, leaders and crackpots with characteristic discernment and wit. Included in a gallery of Great American Novelists are Norman Mailer, Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, Joseph Heller, William Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut, John Updike, Paul Theroux, Philip Roth and Saul Bellow. Amis also takes us to Dallas, where presidential candidate Ronald Reagan is attempting to liaise with born-again Christians. We glimpse thebeau mondeof Palm Beach, where each couple tries to out-Gatsby the other, and examine the case of Claus von Bulow. Steven Spielberg gets a visit, as does Brian de Palma, whom Amis asks why his films make no sense, and Hugh Hefner's sybaritic fortress and sanitised image are penetrated. There can be little that escapes the eye of Martin Amis when his curiosity leads him to a subject, and America has found in him a superlative chronicler." 505 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Campo Santo
W. G. Sebold,
ISBN: 0241142776
Hamish Hamilton, Great Britain, 2005. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. First Edition. This final collection of essays by W. G. Sebald offers profound ruminations on many themes common to his work–the power of memory and personal history, the connections between images in the arts and life, the presence of ghosts in places and artifacts. Some of these pieces pay tribute to the Mediterranean island of Corsica, weaving elegiacally between past and present, examining, among other things, the island’s formative effect on its most famous citizen, Napoleon. In others, Sebald examines how the works of Günter Grass and Heinrich Böll reveal “the grave and lasting deformities in the emotional lives” of postwar Germans; how Kafka echoes Sebald’s own interest in spirit presences among mortal beings; and how literature can be an attempt at restitution for the injustices of the real world. Dazzling in its erudition, accessible in its deep emotion, Campo Santo confirms Sebald’s status as one of the great modern writers who divined and expressed the invisible connections that determine our lives.

The Madwoman’s Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985
Germaine Greer,
ISBN: 0330301497
Picador, Great Britain, 1986. 
  Softcover. Good Condition/. . Always strong and fearless, Germaine Greer strikes right at the heart of the matter—be it John F. Kennedy and vaginal deodorants, rape and artificial insemination, cosmetic surgery, the death of Jimi Hendrix, or the famine in Ethiopia. This collection represents a mosaic of essays, long and short, some of which are appearing for the first time in print and all of which chafe the conventional and are bristling with argument. From the youthful liveliness of her sixties pieces, which “got up everybody’s nose,” to the depth and complexity of her later work, The Madwoman’s Underclothes is a reflection both of an era and of the changing ideas and styles of Germaine Greer: “The essays on Brazil, Cuba, and Ethiopia represent my coming of age. Something like a coherent system of values is beginning to emerge after my years of wandering, although I have certainly not arrived at a set of articles of faith, and never will, I hope.” Greer’s opinions on social, political, and sexual trends and mores are tendered in her unique fashion—outspoken, with rapier wit and no tolerance for narrow-mindedness. But as explosive, angry, and often funny as these essays are, they also reveal tenderness and sadness and that emotion that underlies all of Greer’s work—passionate commitment. 305 pages.

A Room of One’s Own
Virginia Woolf,
Penguin Books,  1945. 
  Softcover. Fair Condition/. . Penguin no. 481.A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy. Binding becoming loose on title page. 94 pages. Pages well browned. Cover has a few creases. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1.

Decolonising Fictions
Brydon & Tiffin, Diana & Helen
ISBN: 9781871049855
Dangaroo Press,  1993. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. Concerned with the literatures of Australia, Canada, and the West Indies. Power relationships, British Imperialism and strains of resistance are examined in the works of writers that include Patrick White, Randolph Stow, V. S. Naipaul and Margaret Atwood. From cover: "Post-colonial literary texts in themselves, in their subversive and restitutive powers, are thus shown to be 'decolonising fictions'; but the book argues that the contexts within which these fictions have usually been placed also needs to be examined. The critical and theoretical traditions which relegate these literatures to the margin or periphery also need decolonising." Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing.

The Task of the Critic
Eagleton, Terry & Beaumont, Matthew
ISBN: 9781844673391
Verso,  2009. First Edition
 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Good (ex-library)/. First Edition. 342 pages. Text and spine/cover marked with Library stamps, in all other respects in very good condition throughout. Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Cover is protected in clear, self-adhesive laminate. The leading literary theorist is dissected in interview. This is an easily accessible guide to his views. Terry Eagleton occupies a unique position in the English-speaking world today. He is not only a productive literary theorist, but also a novelist and playwright. He remains a committed socialist deeply hostile to the zeitgeist. Over the last forty years his public interventions have enlivened an otherwise bland and conformist culture. His pen, as many colleagues in the academy - including Harold Bloom, Gayatri Spivak and Homi Bhabha - have learnt, is merciless and unsparing. As a critic Eagleton has not shied away from confronting the high priests of native conformity as highlighted by his coruscating polemic against Martin Amis on the issue of civil liberties and religion. This comprehensive volume of interviews covers both his life and the development of his thought and politics. Lively and insightful, they will appeal not only to those with an interest in Eagleton himself, but to all those interested in the evolution of radical politics, modernism, cultural theory, the history of ideas, sociology, semantic inquiry and the state of Marxist theory.

How Fiction Works
Wood, James
ISBN: 9780224079839
Jonathan Cape, Great Britain, 2008. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First Edition. 194 pages. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Edges of dust jacket have light bumping. Dust jacket is unclipped. Pages are lightly tanned. In the tradition of E. M. Forster's "Aspects of the Novel" and Milan Kundera's "The Art of the Novel", "How Fiction Works" is a scintillating and searching study of the main elements of fiction, such as narrative, detail, characterization, dialogue, realism, and style. In his first full-length book of criticism, one of the most prominent critics of our time takes the machinery of story-telling apart to ask a series of fundamental questions: What do we mean when we say we 'know' a fictional character? What constitutes a 'telling' detail? When is a metaphor successful? Is realism realistic? Why do most endings of novels disappoint?Wood ranges widely, from Homer to Beatrix Potter, from the Bible to John Le Carre, and his book is both a study of the techniques of fiction-making and an alternative history of the novel. Playful and profound, it incisively sums up two decades of bold, often controversial, and now classic critical work, and will be enlightening to writers, readers, and anyone interested in what happens on the page.
