Flaubert and Madame Bovary; a double portrait by Francis Steegmuller( Book )

86 editions published between 1939 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Steegmuller's double portrait of Madame Bovary and her maker is a remarkable and unusual biographical study, a sensitive and detailed account of how an unpromising young man turns himself into one of the world's greatest novelists. Steegmuller starts with the young Flaubert, prone to mysterious fits, hypochondriacal, at odds with and yet dependent on his bourgeois family. Then, drawing on Flaubert's voluminous correspondence, Steegmuller tracks his subject through friendships and love affairs, a trip to the Orient, a nervous breakdown and tenuous recovery, and finally into the study, where a mind at once restless and jaded finds a focus in the precisely detailed reality of an imagined woman, utterly ordinary in her unhappiness, whose story was to revolutionize literature."--BOOK JACKET

At once a classic of travel literature and a penetrating portrait of a 'sensibility on tour', Flaubert in Egypt wonderfully captures the young writer's impressions during his 1849 voyages.

Pre-revolutionary Paris comes to life in this fascinating story surrounding the correspondence between two colorful and witty society figures: the French author Louise d'epinay and the Italian priest-diplomat Ferdinando Galiani.

Francis Steegmuller's book is at once a unique history and a charming account of friendship sustained in a turbulent age
The ancient shore : dispatches from Naples by Shirley Hazzard( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Australia, Shirley Hazzard first moved to Naples as a young woman in the 1950s to take up a job with the United Nations. It was the beginning of a long love affair. Battered by World War II, Naples would remain for decades one of the most violent and impoverished places in Italy, but in its passion, vivacity, and beauty, the city still justified the loving words written about it by Goethe, Byron, and others over the centuries. Here are the best of Hazzard's writings on Naples, along with a New Yorker essay by her late husband, Francis Steegmuller. For the pair, the Naples of Pliny, Gibbon, and Auden is constantly alive to them: "The ghosts of this region are too many, and too vital, to sadden us," Hazzard writes. "Rather, they create a company, ironic and benign, to which we ourselves may ultimately hope to belong."--Publisher description
