One man's chorus : the uncollected writings by Anthony Burgess( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A genuine master of the mot and the anecdote, Burgess rarely fails to amuse in this generous selection of essays on topics as various as oranges (not only of the clockwork variety), Marilyn Monroe, God, and Yiddish humor (his favorite one-liner, the Jewish matron's response to her son's psychiatrist: "Oedipus Schmoedipus - what's it matter so long as he loves his mother?")."--BOOK JACKET. "In other of these candid and sometimes cantankerous pieces written over the past two decades Burgess revisits his youth in Manchester, reconsiders his experiences among British colonials in Malaysia, and reevaluates his literary exile in Monaco. He examines his craft, he carps at critics, he reflects upon literature and litterateurs, from such twentieth-century giants as James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, and Virginia Woolf to the eccentric Sitwells to fellow novelists Evelyn Waugh and Graham Greene."--Jacket

The killing room by Jonathan Liebesman( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four volunteers sign up for what initially appears to be a typical paid research study. Quickly, they discover that they have unwittingly become involved with a classified government program that should have been terminated nearly two decades ago. As the study gets underway, the group is presented with a series of questions, and given a finite window of time in which each individual member must submit a unique numerical answer. At first, the participants all assume that the subject who gives the most obviously incorrect answer will be removed from the experiment, but it does not take long for the group to realize that the correct answer isn't always the answer that the researchers are looking for. Meanwhile, the brooding Dr. Phillips attempts to manipulate the study to get the answers he wants. Ms. Reilly, a military psychologist and the newest member of his team, begins questioning the ethics of such a diabolical experiment
