The hair of Harold Roux by Thomas Williams( Book )

23 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 1,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aaron Benham--professor, novelist, friend, mentor, family man, and sometime idealist--is supposed to be working on his new novel, The Hair of Harold Roux. But instead, tormented by the chaos of his present and the demons of his past, he is riding his motorcycle too fast, drinking too much, and thinking too often and deeply. Through Aaron's rich, if angst-ridden, mind we discover that his novel-within-a-novel is really a thinly disguised account of his own turbulent post-World War II collegiate days. Harold Roux, a naive but well-meaning ex-GI who hides his premature baldness under an ill-fitting hairpiece, and Allard Benson, Aaron's fictional alter ego, become locked in what Aaron sardonically describes as "a simple story of seduction, rape, madness, and murder--the usual human preoccupations."

20 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whipple & rsquo;s Castle is a mansion in Leah, New Hampshire. Set in the 1940s, Williams writes what seems to be an old-fashioned novel that has a great darkness to it as it looks at the traditional values of small-town America. & ldquo;This is a big novel. & rdquo; & mdash; Literary Guild Magazine Thomas Williams published eight novels and a collection of short stories over three decades beginning in 1955. In 1975 he won a National Book Award for The Hair of Harold Roux, which, like several of his works, was set in the fictionalized Leah, New Hampshire
The moon pinnace by Thomas Williams( Book )

7 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A love story that takes on all the passion and pain of early adulthood. A great look at post & ndash;World War II America. & ldquo;I loved the book. Its most outstanding quality is the haunting power of nostalgia, the searing atmosphere of memory. What is most compelling about it as a love story is that it manages to be uplifting, in the way love stories are supposed to be uplifting, while also honestly expressing the compromise, the disappointment, the unfulfilled longings. & rdquo; & mdash;John Irving Thomas Williams published eight novels and a collection of short stories over three decades beginning in 1955. In 1975 he won a National Book Award for The Hair of Harold Roux, which, like several of his works, was set in the fictionalized Leah, New Hampshire
