Front endpapers and title pages marked with Library stamps, but very discreetly, spine unmarked, in all other respects in very good condition throughout. The dust jacket has been protected by a removable plastic cover. Covering everyone from Leo Tolstoy and Mark Twain to Don De Lillo and Lorrie Moore, Good Fiction Guide offers an informative reference work on novelists and their works, with an emphasis of twentieth-century fiction and popular classics, but with ample coverage of major novelists of the past. The guide takes us on a stimulating tour of the literary landscape. Here are more than one thousand alphabetically arranged biographies of important novelists, ranging from Chinua Achebe to Emile Zola. There are profiles of leading contemporary writers, such as Ann Beattie, Thomas Pynchon, Jane Smiley, Martin Amis, Amy Tan, Peter Carey, V.S. Naipaul, and Harold Brodkey. The entries provide a flavor of each writer's work, recommend which of their books to read, and include suggestions for related reading, leading you to other writers whose work may be either comparable or an interesting contrast. Equally important, the guide includes 34 essays that illuminate genres such as Crime, Adventure, Romance, and Magic Realism, or offer intriguing looks at the national literatures of such places as Australia, India, and the Caribbean. Each entry is a personal essay by an expert in the field and includes their top twelve recommended titles. Good Fiction Guide is a perfect road map for everyone exploring the highways and byways of fiction. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Essays & Literary Criticism; Fiction. ISBN: 0192100211.

It is also rubbed on the edges. Otherwise both booked in dustjacket are in good order. The author went to Africa in search of material for one of his books. He also visited the United Nations, and Spain and then returned to London. His experiences during and immediately after these journeys filled Barlow with indignation. It seemed to him that events in those parts of Africa were being reported and judged unfairly, that public opinion was being successfully slumped by ill-informed the generally well-meaning " liberals" in England by deliberate misrepresentation at UN. The author was so upset by changes in England, that he emigrated to Tasmania! Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.

"This book is a critical study, technical and textual, and also an interpretation. But interpretation is meant a kind of collaboration between the mind of the reader -- in this case the critic, a creative writer himself -- and that of his author. The plan of the book is to take the works in the order of their writing, and to trace the growth of this spiritual content as well as their form. Certain of them which seem peculiarly significant either in their manner or their matter have been examined in detail, and everywhere the aim has been to reveal what is latent in them as well as what is more directly expressed." -- front fold over blurb.

Patrick White’s Fiction
Walsh, William,

 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 200 g; VI, 138 pages, last two pages blank, includes chapter notes, bibliography, index. In original paperback binding, some curving of the binding. The author argues that Patrick White's books make up a cycle which suggests a strong and continuing creative power, and one which shows itself most vividly in his use of language. This bears the indelible stamp of the writer's personality and domination of his material to the extent of ignoring many common formalities of language and syntax and making frequent and prolonged use of metaphor to sustain and enrich the narrative. – Rear panel blurb The only damage to the book is a slight loss of colour on the spine section, and foxing of the inside of the front cover.
