Cold Comfort Farm by John Schlesinger( Visual )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Academy Award winning director John Schlesinger comes a brilliantly witty film. Starring Kate Beckinsale (Pearl Harbor) as Flora Poste, a London society girl, and Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) as Flora's friend and mentor, this heartwarming comedy is full of charm and clever satire. Recently orphaned, Flora ignores the sage advice of Mrs. Smiley (Joanna Lumley) and moves to the country to live on a decrepit farm with her eccentric relatives. Fancying herself a writer, Flora encounters perfect material for her novel in the humorously odd collection of rural characters. In her own inimitable way, Flora insists on creating order out of their chaos, and in the process, she fills their lives with light and laughter. Also starring Rufus Sewell (A Knight's Tale), Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings), Stephen Fry (Peter's Friends) and Eileen Atkins

70 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This text] conveys ... the importance of American Studies. [The text] provides a comprehensive and re-evaluation of America's place in the world and the often tangled paths that led her theres. [It also] provides a contemporary view of the central themes and pre-occupations of American life. Ideals such as the commitment to liberty, equality and material progress are fully examined and new light is shed on the sometimes contradictory ways in which these ideals have informed the nation's history and culture. [This] is essential reading for all students of American history, literature and politics. The general reader, too, will find much of interest in this exploration of the diverse factors that have shaped - and continue to shape - the America we think we know today. -Back cover

Though the crafty empress lures him to her Winter Palace, the Hermitage, she seems more interested in buying him impressive personal library than adopting the liberal reforms he suggests."--Jacket

Doctor Criminale by Malcolm Bradbury( Book )

47 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Malcolm Bradbury's virtuoso novel of intellectual pursuit, narrator and subject are at opposite poles of the universe of letters. Urbane, polymathic, multilingual, Doctor Bazlo Criminale, man from nowhere, citizen of the world, is a mega-star in the cultural firmament - a critic, novelist, playwright, and philosopher published, quoted, and feted in every corner of the globe, around which he seems to be in endless transit. He is the embodiment of the modern European philosopher, the "Great Thinker of the Age of Glasnost."" "Naive, anonymous, provincial, Francis Jay has ambitions only to break into the modern media. When he's asked to research a TV documentary on Bazlo Criminale, he steps into a world as far outside his experience as it is beyond his comprehension. It should be a simple matter of research. Criminale's life has been conducted in print, but television's demands are more immediate: the media need to know what Criminale looks like, where he comes from, who he sleeps with, why he matters. Above all, the camera is greedy for locations, and since Criminale is a master at attending conventions, locations there are in plenty, all across Europe and on either side of where the Iron Curtain once ran. But the mystery of Bazlo Criminale only increases: the more information Jay manages to assemble, the less it seems to fit. Dates and data multiply into contradiction, gaps expand into lacunae, and Francis discovers that Criminale is every bit as easy to lose as he is difficult to locate. As he grows more to like the man, Jay increasingly comes to discover that the gaps may conceal evasions, compromises, and betrayals on the literary, intellectual, and political levels that his own postmodern existence has not yet equipped him to understand."
Dangerous pilgrimages : transatlantic mythologies and the novel by Malcolm Bradbury( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Italian and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malcolm Bradbury, who has been writing about various aspects of American and British literature for more than three decades, tracks this long-lived relationship and the accompanying myths with expert zest and enthusiasm. It is an exhilarating journey - from Chateaubriand's primeval America, crisscrossing the Atlantic to Henry James (who invented Paris) and Edith Wharton's focus on the American in Europe, to the European tours of America in the tradition of Evelyn Waugh (who invented postmodern L.A.) and Malcolm Lowry, to the contemporary "frequent flyer" novelists for whom both continents represents a kind of hyper-reality
