The good son : a novel by Craig Nova( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 2006 in English and Finnish and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chip Mackinnon returns from World War II a changed man. After being shot down over the desert and imprisoned by the enemy, the world of privilege to which he belongs seems shallow. But in the shadow of his older brother's death, the full weight of his father's expectations falls on Chip. Pop Mackinnon - whose money is new but just as good as anyone else's - has designs on the upper echelons of society. The polo ponies and expensive education he bought for his son weren't gifts; they were an investment in the family's future. Now it's time for Chip to pay him back by marrying a girl who can finally bring the Mackinnons into society's inner circle. A shrewd and cunning man, Pop is used to getting his way - until the arrival of Jean Cooper, that is. This Midwestern beauty awakens Chip's passions, and the two embark on an affair that threatens to destroy Pop's social-climbing plans. A battle of wills between father and son ensues, one that tests the boundaries of their relationship and strays into the place where love turns irrevocably to hate. Originally published in 1982 to wide acclaim, The Good Son remains Craig Nova's undisputed masterpiece. This classic of contemporary American literature artfully explores the complicated web of emotions that exists between fathers and sons - ambition, jealousy, loyalty, love - in a tale that compels with its simple, searing honesty

Tornado alley by Craig Nova( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and German and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tornado Alley is a story of a man and a woman who are on a dangerous collision course. Marie Boule is a love-starved young woman who grew up in a small, impoverished town in Pennsylvania, and her one desire is to find a comfortable, easy life. She thinks she is capable of hardening her heart and making any sacrifice necessary to get where she's going. It is only a matter of time before she meets Ben Lunn, a bright and responsible man who thinks he has made his peace with the woman he has married and the demands of being a father and husband. When Ben and Marie meet it is with all the unstoppable quality of a force of nature: at first, they are just pleased with each other's company, a kind of innocent companionship they both crave, but soon they enter into a secret bond. Benn Lunn's life has been marked by gifts, not the least of which is a kind of magical sense about the world. He is the son of a small-town doctor, and in the heat of the place where he grew up, in the scandals of those around him, there is always the constant presence of the effect of passion. His mother ran off to become an actress - his father keeps his own love alive, waiting for her return. Marie has seen, in her own youth, the result of love come to nothing, and she is determined to avoid this at all costs"

With by Ken Ohara( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site amazon: "Ken Oharas photographic series of one-hour exposure portraits create in their final form a new identity for each subject. The traditional evaluations we make of a portrait, i.e., How do you look? are lost in the blur of a passing hour. The soft outlines of heads and bodies take on a new power in their loss of detail, and we look to the objects that frame each sitter to give us a context for identity. Like Meatyard before him, Oharas collective subjects create a wry and melancholy portrait of the absent artist."
