Most widely held works by Lyall H Powers
Henry James at work by Theodora Bosanquet( )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This enlarged and annotated edition rescues Bosanquet from the shadows of literary history and shows her to be a fascinating figure in her own right, a skilled writer and editor, and early feminist, and a contemporary of the Bloomsbury literary community. The book is enhanced by an essay about Bosanquet and her circle, and snippets from her diaries and letters, now in the Harvard University archives."--Jacket
The complete notebooks of Henry James by Henry James( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book includes the nine scribbler-notebooks that were published by Oxford in 1947 ; these have been considerably updated and annotated to correct the identification of stories developed by James from his various notes and to reveal many noted Victorians James concealed through the use of their initials. Certain omitted portions of the notebooks have also been restored. This volume is especially noteworthy for the body of new material (over 20,000 words) that it contains. It includes a series of James's pocket diaries in which, amid appointments and luncheon dates, he jotted down observations and ideas for his fiction and commented on his personal relations. Also here are some fugitive dictated notes, in which James offered an autobiographical meditation on the "turning point" in his life and the "working out" of a story based on a passion murder by the American acquaintance in the south of France. James's long out-of-print statements for his unfinished novels The Ivory Tower and The Sense of the Past, scenarios for unfinished plays, the writer's deathbed dictation - all these are here as well. Also included is a long outline of The Ambassadors and jacket cover notes that are now identified as James's own writing. An appendix contains a substantial, and previously unpublished, fragment of Hugh Merrow, a story he never completed, and the book even provides insight into James's "cash accounts". Everywhere throughout the collection, in writings never intended for the public eye, the artist is seen at work. His private prayers to his Good Angel and exhortations to himself make exhilarating reading."--Inside jacket cover
Alien heart : the life and work of Margaret Laurence by Lyall H Powers( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Margaret Laurence remains one of Canada's best-known and most beloved writers. Twice winner of the Governor General's Award for fiction, her novels and short stories are known to readers throughout the world. Laurence's fictional characters such as Hagar from The Stone Angel and Morag in The Diviners are among the most compelling and powerful in modern fiction. By the time of her death in 1986, the Toronto Globe and Mail could write that Laurence was "more profoundly admired than any other Canadian novelist of her generation.""--BOOK JACKET
