Women in the house of fiction : post-war women novelists by Lorna Sage( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel was once upon a time the genre women felt at home in. This wide- ranging and detailed study of contemporary novelists explores the forms of nostalgia (shared by many feminist critics) for a 'woman's novel'; and the subtle or savage strategies which have turned the house of fiction upside down. The result is a critique of the nature of narrative now; and a celebration of the energies that are undoing our definitions of women's work

The voyage out by Virginia Woolf( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Voyage Out (1915) is the story of a rite of passage.

Virginia Woolf knew all too well the forms that she was supposed to follow when writing of a young lady's entrance into the world, and she struggled to subvert the conventions, wittily and assiduously, rewriting and revising the novel many times. The finished work is not, on the face of it, a `portrait of the artist'. However, through The Voyage Out readers will discover Woolf as an eme

The Salzburg tales by Christina Stead( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christina Stead's The Salzburg Tales is a unique collection of short stories which in its scope, richness of fantasy and range of characters compares with The Decameron, The Canterbury Tales and other works in that older tradition which the author has described as a "treasury of story. Based on his parents experiences as homesteaders, the author chronicles the interwoven lives of three primary characters surrounded by a rich assortment of friends and family members. Their hardships and tragedies are fodder for outrageous, embellished tales. This book is written for the thousands of descendants of homesteaders who have heard their ancestors tales and would like to read more. It is also for those who, having lived during most of the twentieth century, are thirsting for a book that recognizes their commonplace accomplishments. Humor and hilarity intermingle with pain and poignancy to capture and hold the reader s interest." - Goodreads
