2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By filtering the story of her own husband's affair through others' stories, DeSalvo revels in the always-exciting fantasy of adultery and reels from its usually painful reality. While she recognizes the seduction of the Madame Bovary risk-all-for-passion story of adultery, she shows us that it is not the only one."--BOOK JACKET. "For anyone who has experienced adultery - from either side - DeSalvo offers a sexy, nonjudgmental, realistic vision of fidelity and marriage."--BOOK JACKET

Melymbrosia by Virginia Woolf( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Virginia Woolf completed Melymbrosia in 1912 when she was thirty years old. The story concerned the emotional and sexual awakening of a young English woman traveling abroad, and bristled with social commentary on issues as varied as homosexuality, the suffrage movement, and colonialism. Warned by colleagues that publishing an outspoken indictment of Britain could prove disastrous to her fledgling career, Woolf revised the novel extensively, omitting much of the political candor. In 1915, the quieter book was published as Woolf's first novel under the title The Voyage Out."--Jacket

The art of slow writing : reflections on time, craft, and creativity by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a series of conversational observations and meditations on the writing process, The Art of Slow Writing examines the benefits of writing slowly. DeSalvo advises her readers to explore their creative process on deeper levels by getting to know themselves and their stories more fully over a longer period of time. She writes in the same supportive manner that encourages her students, using the slow writing process to help them explore the complexities of craft. The Art of Slow Writing is the antidote to self-help books that preach the idea of fast-writing, finishing a novel a year, and quick revisions. DeSalvo makes a case that more mature writing often develops over a longer period of time and offers tips and techniques to train the creative process in this new experience. DeSalvo describes the work habits of successful writers (among them, Nobel Prize laureates) so that readers can use the information provided to develop their identity as writers and transform their writing lives. It includes anecdotes from classic American and international writers such as John Steinbeck, Henry Miller, Virginia Woolf and D. H. Lawrence as well as contemporary authors such as Michael Chabon, Junot Diaz, Jeffrey Eugenides, Ian McEwan, and Salman Rushdie. DeSalvo skillfully and gently guides writers to not only start their work, but immerse themselves fully in the process and create texts they will treasure
