Raquela, a woman of Israel by Ruth Gruber( Book )

24 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During her extraordinary career, nurse Raquela Prywes was a witness to history. She delivered babies in a Holocaust refugee camp and on the Israeli frontier. She crossed minefields to aid injured soldiers in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and organized hospitals to save the lives of those fighting the 1967 Six-Day War. Along the way, her own life was a series of triumphs and tragedies mirroring those of the newly formed Jewish state. Raquela is a moving tribute to a remarkable woman, and an unforgettable chronicle of the birth of Israel through the eyes of those who lived it"--Amazon.com

Virginia Woolf : the will to create as a woman by Ruth Gruber( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1935, Ruth Gruber published a seminal essay on Virginia Woolf that can now be seen for what it was: the first feminist interpretation of Woolf's writings and literary career. Seventy years later, Gruber's critique is presented for the first time in the U.S., accompanied by new material that makes it more meaningful than ever for readers today: facsimile reproductions of previously unpublished correspondence between Woolf and Gruber, and Gruber's new introduction, "My Hours with Virginia Woolf," in which she recalls her 1935 meeting with Woolf in her London home. Gruber also examines perennial questions concerning Woolf's bi-polar illness and anti-semitism." "In her trailblazing analysis, Gruber perceptively examines Woolf's concept of gender and her literary influences, cogently discussing how Woolf constructed a feminine writing style in a realm dominated by men. Above all, she shows how Woolf strove consciously to create as a woman."--Jacket

Described by Gruber as ?the odyssey of how I met Virginia Woolf, and how her life and work became intertwined with my life,?
