Langrishe, go down; a novel by Aidan Higgins( Book )

59 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 9 languages and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Langrishe, Go Down traces the fall of the Langrishes - a once wealthy, highly respected Irish family - through the lives of their four daughters, especially the youngest, Imogen, whose love affair with a self-centered German scholar resonates throughout the book. Their relationship, told in erotic and occasionally melancholic prose, comes to represent not only the invasion and decline of this insular family, but the decline of Ireland and Western Europe as a whole in the years preceding World War II."--Jacket

Samuel Beckett : photographs by John Minihan( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most remarkable thing about this collection of photographs of Samuel Beckett is that it exists at all, for Beckett was notoriously elusive throughout his life. When he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, journalists were unable to locate him for interviews and photographs; he did not even go to Stockholm to accept the prize. Collected here is a series of photographs by the Irish photographer, John Minihan, that presents a view of Beckett that has long been missing
