Bats out of hell by Barry Hannah( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love and torment, lunacy and desire, tenderness and war - the stories in Bats Out of Hell provide a brilliant, dazzling odyssey into American life. A man is possessed by the spirit of an eighteenth-century noblewoman every time he plays chess; a crippled boy yearns for brotherhood; dreaming and spinning lies to one another, a group of old men wait for death. No one but Barry Hannah could create this vivid world - and explore the nature of lust, captivity, and love in marriage. Barry Hannah's reputation as a master of the short story, first established in 1978 with the publication of Airships, is magnified in this volatile, long-awaited collection of new stories. Astonishing in range and in portrayal of the human heart, these fierce and radar-perfect stories give us individuals in whom hilarity and pain combine with true and startling clarity

Boomerang ; Never die : two novels by Barry Hannah( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Boomerang, a novel told in vignettes both real and fictive, a father attempting to cope with the tragic murder of his son learns that actions return to haunt or reward. He becomes the embodiment of Hannah's ideal of forbearance, dignity, and decency in the face of incomprehensible death." "In Never Die Hannah mingles hilarity and horror as the frontier West is killed off by the onset of automobiles, biplanes, and nitroglycerine bombs. A gallery of grotesque characters - a judges' evil dwarf henchman, a nymphomaniacal schoolteacher, and a homosexual doctor named Fingo - populate this rollicking postmodern novel in which Old West myths collide with the anarchy of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
The pleasure of influence : conversations with American male fiction writers by Rob Trucks( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of interviews, eleven of the most important American male fiction writers of our time - Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler, National Book Award winner Charles Johnson, National Book Award nominees Thom Jones, Barry Hannah, and Stephen Dixon, as well as Russell Banks, Rick Moody, Chris Offutt, Stewart O'Nan, Steve Erickson, and Gordon Lish - candidly discuss the origin, process, and achievement of their own fiction. All of the writers in this collection are working with personal truths, particular to their experience, yet they operate within a defined referential tradition. The material is unmistakably their own, the way they tell the story is their own, but they are always mindful of the world that preceded them."--Jacket
