Alien creature : a visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen by Linda Griffiths( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gwendolyn MacEwen was to many a mesmerising presence. In less than twenty-six years, she published twenty books and became, with Margaret Atwood, the most celebrated Canadian poet of her day. Then, in 1987, at forty-six, she was dead; many suspected suicide." "Alien Creature: A Visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen is inspired by MacEwen's life and work, yet is an entirely new creation. MacEwen, as evoked by Griffiths, returns to a modern world one night, bringing images and a prophetic warning. There has been a death of poetry, of imagination. The city will pay. The world will pay. Then she laughs, opens her hands, pulling brilliant scarves from the air. On this night, MacEwen is torn apart by her magic, made invincible by her magic."--Jacket

But when her new lover also rejects her, she faces the most difficult task of all: she must learn to love herself."--Container

It's a time of passion and confusion. Virtue is barely holding down its petticoats. People are bursting their corsets with unbridled desire.

Miss Mary Barfoot runs a school for secretaries with her young lover, Miss Rhoda Nunn. But when the Misses Madden - spinsters Virginia and Alice and beautiful young Monica - arrive, along with the attractive Dr. Everard Barfoot, things can never be the same. Age of Arousal i

The Duchess, a.k.a. Wallis Simpson by Linda Griffiths( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Duchess: a.k.a. Wallis Simpson takes us into a kaleidoscopic wonderland, where Kings and Queens dance the Black Bottom, Faerie creatures demand blood, and Empires are given up for love. The play tells the story of the woman for whom Edward VIII abdicated his throne. It journeys into the emotional centre of a plain, brash, sexual woman who danced through her ulcers and collapsed only when the cocktails ran out - a woman destined to become the Black Queen of her time. This multi-layered script finds a place between straight-forward narrative and magic realism."--BOOK JACKET

When Zach's best friend, Micky, begins to spend more time around the house, bonding with Dan and flirting with Marion, even Keira cannot anticipate the depth of Zach's rage and sense of alienation. Will his repressed feelings culminate in a violent act that is sure to go viral?"--Publisher
