James Joyce : a new biography by Gordon Bowker( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revealing new biography, the first in more than fifty years, of one of the twentieth-century's towering literary figures: James Joyce, author of "Ulysses." The author draws on material recently come to light and reconsiders the two signal works produced about Joyce's life, Herbert Gorman's authorized biography of 1939 and Richard Ellman's tome of 1959. By binding together more intimately the life and work of this singular artist, the author here gives us a masterful, fresh, eminently readable contribution to our understanding, both of Joyce's personality and of the monumental opus he created

Inside George Orwell by Gordon Bowker( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few writers can boast the legacy of George Orwell, both in his numerous additions to the English language and in his profound influence on world literature. This book attempts to bring to life the man behind the words. It explores the influence of his childhood and Eton education, his experience as a policeman in Burma, his deliberate plunge into poverty and his experiences in the Spanish Civil War in the creation of the consciousness of the man who produced Animal Farm and 1984. The book includes new material on Orwell's complex and sometimes reckless sex life, new evidence of his being hunted and spied on in Spain, his paranoia about possible assassination, the strange circumstances of his first marriage and his deathbed wedding to a woman fifteen years his junior. This new material enables this biographer to cast new light on Orwell, the inner man, as well as on Orwell the great author."--Jacket
