Adultery by Louise A DeSalvo( )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,320 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."--Jacket

After they met in 1922, Vita Sackville-West, a British novelist married to diplomat Harold Nicolson, and Virginia Woolf began an intense and passionate relationship that lasted until Woolf's death in 1941. In their correspondence, the women leave no aspect of their lives untouched: they record daily dramas, bits of gossip, the strains and pleasures of writing, and their mutual joy in each other's company. This edition includes over 500 letters spanning 20 years; features 25 photographs, eight new to this edition; and has a new introduction and bibliography

Conceived with malice by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mercurial relationship between D.H. Lawrence, a coal miner's son, and his patron Lady Ottoline Morrell, whose list of lovers included Bertrand Russell, Roger Fry, and Henry Lamb, began as a union of "soulmates" but deteriorated into an enmity that spawned Lawrence's vicious portrait of her as the morally corrupt Hermione Roddice in Women in Love. The legendary writer Djuna Barnes reveals the psychic wound that lay at the core of her classic novels Nightwood and Ryder - and that at last was excruciatingly exposed in her final major work, The Antiphon, the amazing play that discloses a family history of multiple incest and child abuse, making her pain-filled and boldly experimental work all too comprehensible

Melymbrosia by Virginia Woolf( Book )

11 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and held by 491 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
Melymbrosia : an early version of The voyage out by Virginia Woolf( Book )

12 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Het leven van een jonge Engelse verandert totaal als ze een oceaanreis maakt met een stel intellectuelen
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 363 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, Virignia 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"--
The milk of almonds : Italian American women writers on food and culture by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often sentimentalized as nurturing through food, Italian American women have struggled against this stereotype to speak of the realities of their lives. In this unique collection, they speak in voices that are loud, boisterous, sweet, savvy, and often subversively funny. Drawing on personal and cultural memory rooted in experiences of food, more than fifty writers dissolve conventional images, replacing them with a sumptuous, communal feast of poetry, stories, and memoir. Though they begin with food, the writers in this collection quickly carry the reader into unexpected, sometimes shocking terrain as they bear witness to the historically unspeakable in the Italian American experience-mental illness, family violence, incest, drug addiction, AIDS, and environmental degradation. Tantalizing and appetizing, this collection is intellectually and politically provocative, for it revises any predictable notion of what it means to be an Italian American
