The Very Telling  Conversations with American Writers, Johnson, Sarah
66 Johnson, Sarah The Very Telling Conversations with American Writers
UPNE 2006 1584655275 / 9781584655275 Various Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
New never read. No dust as issued. Once again, Sarah Anne Johnson offers insightful interviews with some of today's most popular and accomplished writers. Steeped in a thorough knowledge of each writer's work, Johnson asks about a range of topics on the writing craft, nurturing fictional ideas, and the daily practice of writing. The authors offer insights and practical advice that will delight their fans and be cherished by aspiring writers. Michael Cunningham recalls how the structure of The Hours evolved as he wrote it. Edwidge Danticat honors the Haitian storytelling tradition she encountered in her childhood. And Jonathan Lethem reflects on working from inside and outside the literary establishment.

Johnson's interviews have been praised for her "thoughtful and knowledgeable questions" (Bloomsbury Review) that "provoke thoughtful responses from her subjects" (Publishers Weekly) and provide "an opportunity to participate in intimate and often illuminating dialog" (Library Journal). Her previous collection, Conversations with American Women Writers (UPNE, 2004), was described as "17 miniature instruction books on craft" by Publishers Weekly.

Other writers interviewed include Rick Moody; Donna Tartt; Myla Goldberg; Mary Gaitskill; Ha Jin; Bret Anthony Johnston; Edward P. Jones; Chang-rae Lee; Alice Mattison; Nancy Rawles; Marilynne Robinson; le thi diem thuy; and Mary Yukari Waters.; 9.10 X 6.10 X 0.80 inches; 224 pages

71 Leighton, Angela & Margaret Reynolds Victorian Women Poets An Anthology
Wiley-Blackwell 1999 0631176098 / 9780631176091 Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
This reader contains 17 new and recent essays addressing work by, and issues raised concerning, Victorian women poets. Among those discussed directly are: Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Bronte, George Eliot, Michael Field, Felicia Hemans, Adelaide Anne Procter, Christina Rossetti, and Rosamund Marriott Watson. Key topics dealt with include the nature of home, the market, the fallen woman and the moral law, the mother, and the muse. An invaluable critical companion to its sister volume Victorian Women Poets: An Anthology, it provides fresh impetus to important current debates about interpretation, concerning: the use of biography, the tension between political and aesthetic readings, the question of poetic value and canonization, the conflict between old historical and new historical approaches, and the validity of psychoanalytic, poststructuralist and feminist readings. Critics represented are: Isobel Armstrong, Kathleen Blake, Susan Conley, Stevie Davies, Sandra M. Gilbert, Gill Gregory, Terrence Holt, Linda K. Hughes, Angela Katharine McGowan, A. Leighton, Tricia Lootens, Jerome J. McGann, J. Dorothy Mermin, Margaret Reynolds, Dolores Rosenblum, Chris White, and Joyce Zonana.; Blackwell Anthologies; 8.90 X 6 X 1.60 inches; 691 pages

Queer Judson, Lincoln, Joseph
72 Lincoln, Joseph Queer Judson
Bristol, Ct D. Appleton 1925 First Edition; Various Hardcover Good in Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed "Sincerely yours, Joseph C. Lincoln". Book and dust show wear. Hinges weak. Scarce copy with dust that has chips but has been covered with archival sleeve. Joseph Crosby Lincoln (February 13, 1870 – March 10, 1944) was an American author of novels, poems, and short stories, many set in a fictionalized Cape Cod. Lincoln's work frequently appeared in popular magazines such as the Saturday Evening Post and The Delineator. Lincoln was aware of contemporary naturalist writers, such as Frank Norris and Theodore Dreiser, who used American literature to plumb the depths of human nature, but he rejected this literary exercise. Lincoln claimed that he was satisfied "spinning yarns" that made readers feel good about themselves and their neighbors. Two of his stories have been adapted to film.Lincoln was born in Brewster, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, and his mother moved the family to Chelsea, Massachusetts, a manufacturing city outside Boston, after the death of his father. Lincoln's literary career celebrating "old Cape Cod" can partly be seen as an attempt to return to an Eden from which he had been driven by family tragedy. Lincoln died in 1944, at the age of 73, in Winter Park, Florida; 7.40 X 5.30 X 1.20 inches; 362 pages; Signed by Author
