The true story of the novel by Margaret Anne Doody ( )
29 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 2,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This deeply informed and truly comparative work is staggering in its breadth. Doody treats not only recognized classics, but also works of usually unacknowledged subgenres - new readings of novels like The Pickwick Papers, Pudd'nhead Wilson, L'Assommoir, Death in Venice, and Beloved are accompanied by insights into Death on the Nile or The Wind in the Willows. Non-Western writers like Chinua Achebe and Witi Ihimaera are also included. In her last section, Doody goes on to show that Chinese and Japanese novels, early and late, bear a strong and not incidental affinity to their Western counterparts. Collectively, these readings offer the basis for a serious reassessment of the history and the nature of the novel

Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen ( )
17 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility. - Publisher

Cecilia, or, Memoirs of an heiress by Fanny Burney ( Book )
18 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cecilia is an heiress, but will inherit her estate only if her husband consents to take her surname." "Cecilia, or Memoirs of an Heiress (1782) is an unusual and disturbing love-story. In playing on the issue of the heroine's name, the novel illustrates the high cost of a patriarchal system. Burney exhibits her comic and satiric powers in depicting Cecilia's dismaying entry into the gilded fashionable world. Cecilia's experiences also bring her into contact with the poor and the low; running through the social analysis is an almost Dickensian forceful sympathy for those whose place in the structure of things is taken for granted. Controversial in its time, and much admired by writers as diverse as Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Choderlos de Laclos, Cecilia still retains its freshness." "This edition presents Cecilia as it first appeared in 1782, indicating changes Burney made to later editions. It includes Burney's cancelled 'Introduction', printed (and annotated) here for the first time, as transcribed from the manuscript."--BOOK JACKET
Aristotle detective by Margaret Anne Doody ( Book )
16 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Set in 4th century BC Athens, this is the story of a student named Stephanos who narrates the way his teacher Aristotle provides Sherlock Holmes-like powers of deduction to help solve a murder. The action-packed story includes murderous attacks at night and an escape from the city in disguise, but all is informed by research about life in ancient (332 BC) Athens: homes, citizenship, olive culture, pottery, women, the legal system, and more. Readers will enjoy the suspense of watching Aristotle teach Stephanos how to gather evidence and manage the case in order to save his family's honor."--Publisher info

12 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This sequel to Aristotle Detective is both a detective novel and a work of historical fiction. In 330 BC a party being given by wealthy Athenian silver miners is followed by a kidnapping and more than one grisly murder, bur these are backed by discussions of Athenian social events, the economics of mining, politics, and more as Doody develops her characters further."--Publisher info
Poison in Athens by Margaret Anne Doody ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is the autumn of 330 BC, and three law cases are exciting Athens. Ergokles' case against the wealthy Orthoboulos for malicious wounding seems to come out well for the dignified man, but shortly afterwards he is found dead of poison, evidently hemlock. His second wife is accused of the crime, and her trial for poisoning sets Athens at odds. Her stepson is her greatest enemy, and seems sure that she is guilty. Meanwhile, Athens' most beautiful woman, Phryne, is accused of impiety, which can carry the death penalty. Aristotle endeavours to solve the mystery with the help of Stephanos, and also with his assistant Theophrastos, who has made a special study of plant poisons
Evelina, or, The history of a young lady's entrance into the world by Fanny Burney ( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle and the secrets of life by Margaret Anne Doody ( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sequel to Aristotle and Poetic Justice, this draws on political tensions between Athenians and followers of Alexander the Great. Stephanos and Aristotle travel across the Aegean to Delos and as far east as the island of Kos. While Doody still alludes to Sherlock Holmes, she really has written a travelogue-inspired novel about Athenian oligarchs, political conspiracies, and pirates. It's all witty, erudite, often bloody, occasionally salacious fun."--Publisher info
