The gentle barbarian : the life and work of Turgenev by V. S Pritchett( Book )

30 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

V.S. Pritchett, our foremost contemporary literary critic, himself a master of the short story, considers Turgenev's writing in depth, offering new insights into such works as A Month in the Country, First Love, Torrents of Spring, A Nest of Gentlefolk, Smoke, and of course, Turgenev's masterpiece, Fathers and Sons. The Gentle Barbarian is the work of one literary master about another; Pritchett's interpretation of his subject is at once subtle and charming, intimate and profound. - Jacket

The Spanish temper by V. S Pritchett( Book )

54 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eliciting comparisons to Orwell's Homage to Catalonia, Pritchett's meditative work on Spain is comprised of a string of sketches, woven around the author's musings on the Spanish character. Having lived in Spain for four years during the 1920s, Pritchett is well placed to deliver such a report, and his resulting narrative is both well informed and delightfully written
London perceived by V. S Pritchett( Book )

72 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a pithy and knowledgeable distillation of the London experience -- a panorama of its history, art, literature, and daily life. Here is the city that Londoners know, a paradox of grandeur and grime, the locus of bustling markets and tranquil parks, of the ancient and modern, of palaces and pubs, of docks and railroad depots. Great Londoners of the past stalk these pages -- Wren, Pepys, Defoe, Hogarth, Dickens, and of course, that consummate Londoner, Samuel Johnson, who said, "No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford." And here, too, are the faces of the people inhabiting 1960s London -- milkmen and master mariners, dockers and shopkeepers, messengers, Chelsea pensioners, and, inevitably, the London bobby. There is, as well, an analysis of the Londoner himself, enigmatic and enduring, with his remote but insistent respect for law, royalty, and ritual, his affection for argument, his toleration of eccentrics
