South and West : from a notebook by Joan Didion( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two excerpts from never-before-seen notebooks offer insights into the author's literary mind and process and includes notes on her Sacramento upbringing, her life in the Gulf states, her views on prominent locals and her experiences during a formative Rolling Stone assignment. Joan Didion has always kept notebooks of overheard dialogue, observations, interviews, drafts of essays, and copies of articles. Notes on the South traces a road trip she took with her husband John Gregory Dunne, in June 1970, through Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Her acute observations about the small towns they pass through, her interviews with prominent local figures, and their preoccupation with race, class, and heritage seem to suggest a South largely unchanged today. California notes began as an assignment from Rolling Stone on the Patty Hearst trial of 1976. Though Didion never wrote the piece, watching the trial and being in San Francisco triggered thoughts about the West, the Hearsts, and her own upbringing in Sacramento

The complete works of Primo Levi by Primo Levi( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the works for sixteen years, The Complete Works of Primo Levi is the most ambitious literary translation of the twenty-first century. Primo Levi, the Italian-born chemist once described by Philip Roth as that "quicksilver little woodland creature enlivened by the forest's astute intelligence," has largely been considered a heroic figure in the annals of twentieth-century literature for If This Is a Man, his haunting account of Auschwitz. Yet Levi's body of work extends considerably beyond his experience as a survivor. Now, the transformation of Levi from Holocaust memoirist to one of the twentieth century's greatest writers culminates in this magisterial publication of The Complete Works of Primo Levi, which, twenty-eight years after his premature death in Turin, finally collects all of Levi's fourteen books--memoirs, essays, poetry, and fiction--into three slip-cased volumes, along with new translations, one revised by the original translator, and an introduction by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison. The appearance of this historic publication will occasion a major reappraisal of "one of the most valuable writers of our time" (Alfred Kazin)" --

San Francisco noir : the city in film noir from 1940 to the present by Nathaniel Rich( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All cities have their secrets, but none are so dark as San Francisco's, the city that Ambrose Bierce famously described as 'a point upon a map of fog.' With its reputation as a shadowy land of easy vice and hard virtue, San Francisco provided the ideal setting for many of the greatest films noir, from classics like The maltese falcon and Dark passage to obscure treasures like Woman on the run and D.O.A., and neo-noirs like Point blank and The conversation. Readers visit the Mission Dolores cemetery where James Stewart spied Kim Novak visiting Carlotta's grave in Vertigo; the Steinhart Aquarium, where a steamy love scene unfolded between Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth in The Lady from Shanghai; and the Kezar Stadium, where Clint Eastwood captures the serial killer, Scorpio, in a blaze of ghastly white light in Dirty Harry. In this guide to the great films noir and the locations where they were shot, the mythic noir city meets San Francisco's own dark past."--

Tin House by Win McCormack( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the website: Donald Barthelme wrote that "The aim of literature ... is the creation of a strange object covered with fur which breaks your heart." This comes across as Karen Russell discusses her reality-bending work, as well as in Kevin Brockmeier's stunning rendering of a modern missionary's peripatetic spiritual journey, "Ryan Shifrin." The legendary Israeli writer and painter, Yorum Kaniuk, semi-autobiographically details his experiences as an ex-Israeli soldier in the heart of New York's golden jazz age. Not to mention Adrienne Rich and Eileen Myles keeping true to Pound's dictum to make it new. We hope that you enjoy these strange, furry things as much as we do
