Afternoon of an author, a selection of uncollected stories and essays by F. Scott Fitzgerald( Book )

22 editions published between 1957 and 1987 in English and held by 1,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For a writer whose productive career lasted only twenty years and whose energy was prodigally expended on other things than writing, Scott Fitzgerald wrote an astonishing amount. Of the more than one hundred and fifty short stories he wrote during those twenty years, only about a quarter were collected during his lifetime; a few new ones were put together when Malcolm Cowley’s selection was published by Scribner’s in 1951. Of Fitzgerald’s thirty or forty essays, ten were printed in The Crack-Up, edited by Edmund Wilson. Apart from the fact that this state of affairs leaves a considerable part of the important work of a great writer unavailable, there is the further difficulty that it prevents most readers from seeing clearly how Fitzgerald developed as a writer. Now, Arthur Mizener, author of the highly successful biography of Fitzgerald, The Far Side of Paradise, has taken from this body of Fitzgerald's uncollected work a revealing and eminently enjoyable cross-section of Fitzgerald's art. Afternoon of an Author contains fourteen uncollected short stories and six uncollected essays, evenly distributed over the course of his writing career, beginning with the autobiographical essay called 'Who’s Who--and Why,' which he wrote for The Saturday Evening Post in 1920, and ending with 'News of Paris--Fifteen Years Ago,' a story found among Fitzgerald's papers, apparently written in 1940, and posthumously published in Furioso. Here, clearly, is a book to be read both for the enjoyment of good writing, and for its illumination of an important figure in American letters. To supplement the reader’s own insight into Fitzgerald's art, Arthur Mizener provides a revealing introduction and pertinent notes heading each selection."--Dust jacket

The last chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Chronicle of Barset is the grand finale to the Barsetshire sereis of novels, Trollope's magnificnet portrayal of the professional and landed classes of Victorian England. The plot focuses on Mr. Crawley, the fanatically proud curate of Hogglestock already known to readers of Framley Parsonage. Accused of theft and persecuted by the domineering Mr. Proudie and her self-righteous followers, he is perhaps Trollope's only character conceived on a heroic scale, and his sufferings reach a tragic intensity. Other familiar characters on the Barsetshire landscape include Mr. Harding, whose old age is movingly described; Grace Crawley, who becomes romantically involved with Major Grantly; and Johnny Eames, who continues his pursuit of Lily Dale but becomes entangled in a dangerous flirtation with the intriguing Madalina Demolines. Lady Lufton, Mr. Robarts, the Greshams, and the Thornes also reappear to play their final part in the Barsetshire drama. - Back cover
