Clemens of the Call : Mark Twain in San Francisco by Mark Twain( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel Clemens was the local reporter for the San Francisco Daily Morning Call from June to October 1864. He wrote many hundreds of items for his newspaper, but nearly all of them have been buried in the files for more than a century. Now "Clemens of the Call" reprints two hundred of them, a rich yield from what is probably the last sizable unmined pocket of Clemens' published writings. The present collection represents a new order of Clemens' journalism... Here, the local reporter Samuel Clemens may be seen writing under pressure and close to fast-breaking events as he covers the news day in and day out... The selections are arranged chronologically within broad topical groupings... The editor has provided a general introduction, annotations, and a chronological checklist of Call items, and he has indicated the evidence that in his opinion is sufficient to establish Clemens as the author of the reprinted selections."--Inside flaps of book jacket

A bibliography of James T. Farrell's writings, 1921-1957 by Edgar Marquess Branch( Book )

15 editions published between 1959 and 1993 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I need an audience--so watch out!" With these James T. Farrell announced his intention of becoming a writer. He was to realize this ambition in manifold ways through his prolificacy, versatility, and his achieved recognition as a formidable figure in American literature. The material contained in this book grew out of initial research for a critical study which disclosed the chaotic state of Farrell's literary affairs and the urgent need for a bibliography. The task was not to be an easy one, for many of Farrell's writings were printed in obscure publications both in the United States and abroad. Edgar M. Branch has ferreted out, producing his compilation with enthusiasm and accuracy. This book is a definitive guide to Farrell's writings published in newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, and books, from the time of his high­school days through 1957. It includes both the fiction (novels, short stories, one poem, and one play) and the nonfiction (essays, articles, statements, manifestoes, newspaper columns, etc.), and in many cases descriptions of these writing are appended when deemed necessary. As a further aid to students and researchers, Branch has listed many reprints and dates of writing for the individual short stories and has provided two appendices giving foreign editions of books and tape recordings of unpublished speeches. This detailed bibliography, the first on Farrell ever printed, is supplemented by a preface by Farrell and a foreword by the author. Edgar Branch has directed his attention to the more inaccessible of Farrell's writings and to the clarification of the voluminous abundance of written material that Farrell has produced. Through this book it is possible to trace Farrell's fluctuating status as a writer, his shifting position among editors, critics, and readers. The data included other clues to the evolution and growth of his ideas and relationships with his contemporaries, providing insight into his changing political affiliations and the motivation and development of his fiction. A Bibliography of ]ames T. Farrell's Writings will be a valuable practical aid to scholars and students of literature and Americana, for it makes available a scholarly compilation of the extensive list of writings by one of America's most distinguished and controversial contemporary writers
A Paris year : Dorothy and James T. Farrell, 1931-1932 by Edgar Marquess Branch( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April of 1931 many American expatriates were leaving Paris because of the Depression that followed the stock market crash of 1929. A gifted but naive young couple, James and Dorothy Farrell, moved against the current. The young writer, who had not yet established himself, and his eager wife, who had some modest support from her family, bought train tickets out of Chicago and steamboat tickets out of New York to follow a dream of personal and artistic freedom. Edgar Marquess Branch, who grew up near Studs Lonigan's Chicago neighborhood, has used interviews, diaries, and letters from Farrell and others to bring to life this formative year of the young author and his wife. Their Paris story is embedded in the lives of other expatriates like Ezra Pound and Kay Boyle, who also were defining their times. Branch's narrative is complemented by photos of persons and places interwoven with the personal and artistic growth for the young Farrells. The Paris sojourn influenced the rest of their lives and the writing of Young Lonigan and Gas-House McGinty, and it altered the face of American literature
