Anton Chekhov : later short stories, 1888-1903 by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 548 libraries worldwide
"This volume presents forty-two of Chekhov's later short stories, written between 1888 and 1903, in acclaimed translations by Constance Garnett and chosen by Shelby Foote. Among the most outstanding are "A Dreary Story," a dispassionate tale that reflects Chekhov's doubts about his role as an artist. Thomas Mann deemed it "a truly extraordinary, fascinating story ... unlike anything else in world literature." "The Darling," a delightful work highly admired by Tolstoy, offers comic proof that life has no meaning without love. And in "The lady with the Dog," which Vladimir Nabokov called "one of the greatest stories ever written," a chance affair takes possession of a bored young woman and a cynical roue, changing their lives forever."--BOOK JACKET.
The beleaguered city : the Vicksburg Campaign, December 1862-July 1863 by Shelby Foote ( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 477 libraries worldwide
Follows the course of Grant's siege of the port of Vicksburg, Mississippi, discusses the strategies of both sides, and assesses the performance and personal objectives of officers from both the Union and Confederate armies. The companion volume to Stars in Their Courses, this marvelous account of Grant's siege of the Mississippi port of Vicksburg continues Foote's narrative of the great battles of the Civil War--culled from his massive three-volume history-recounting a campaign which Lincoln called one of the most brilliant in the world. Shelby Foote has drawn from his epic account another of the Civil War's most dramatic episodes, the taking of the city of Vicksburg by the Union forces. Ulysses S. Grant fought a long campaign over tricky terrain to get to the heavily fortified city. All the while, he had to fend off his colleague and rival General John McClernand, who decided that his aspirations to Lincoln's White House could best be realized by his possession of Vicksburg. When the city fell on July 4, 1863, after a protracted siege, it was a personal triumph for Grant and contributed largely to his later promotion to command of all the Union armies. Lincoln said that his general's campaign to reach Vicksburg had been one of the most brilliant in the world.

"Tom Parker's pleasant voice creates believable characters who metamorphose from words to reality with regional accents, interesting intonations, and antique expressions."--AudioFile. "Foote, like Faulkner, sees the Deep South with an unblinking eye." -L'Express. Hugh Bart, living as a farmer in the post-bellum South, confronts life's problems as told in a clever mixture of rich language and flashbacks, in this, the successful first novel by Shelby Foote, a major Southern writer whose masterpiece is "The Civil War: a narrative".
