Mystery stories by David Helwig( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mystery Stories is inhabited by absence: dead friends, past childhoods and ex-lovers. Others, stunned, are left behind to navigate the pitfalls of memory, while trying to make sense of lives built by people who are no longer there. This collection is an intricate addition to Helwig's already large canon of rich, thoughtful stories populated by densely real people
The image of Chekhov : forty stories in the order in which they were written by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in France toward the end of his career, these stories are Chekhov's only attempt at the linked collection. "A Man in a Shell" is a grotesque Gogolian comedy; "Gooseberries" a narrator's impassioned response; and "About Love" a poignant story of failed relationships. Translated by the impeccable David Helwig and fabulously illustrated by Seth, About Love is essential for any Chekhov enthusiast. David Helwig is the author of twenty volumes of fiction and fourteen volumes of poetry, an Officer of the Order of Canada, and former poet laureate of Prince Edward Island
The stand-in : a novella by David Helwig( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A retired academic is called to a remote university to speak as the replacement for an old friend recently deceased in unusual circumstances. The Stand-In is a transcript of these lectures, revealing a sophisticated tale of art, fame, and adultery that unfolds through rambling anecdotes and flashes of scholarly grandstanding. Fiercely funny and bitterly ironic, The Stand-In has been called the best academic doppelgänger story since Nabokov's Pale Fire."--
