5 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Fact gathers the best of Thomas Mallon's superb criticism from the past twenty-two years - essays that appeared in his GQ column, "Doubting Thomas," and in The New York Times Book Review, The American Scholar, The New Yorker, and Harper's, among other publications. Here are his evaluations of the work of contemporary writers such as Nicholson Baker, Peter Carey, Tom Wolfe, Don DeLillo, Joan Didion, and Robert Stone, and reassessments of such earlier twentieth-century figures as John O'Hara, Sinclair Lewis, Truman Capote, and Mary McCarthy. Mallon also considers an array of odd literary genres and phenomena - including book indexes, obituaries, plagiarism, cancelled checks, fan mail, and author tours
Edmund Blunden by Thomas Mallon( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novels & stories 1942-1963 : The company she keeps ; The oasis ; The groves of academe ; A charmed life ; Stories by Mary McCarthy( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seventy-five years ago Mary McCarthy provoked a scandal with her electrifying debut novel, The Company She Keeps (1942), announcing the arrival of a major new voice in American literature. A candid, thinly-veiled portrait of the late-1930s New York intellectual scene, its penetrating gaze and creative fusion of life and literature-"mutual plagiarism," she called it--became the hallmark of McCarthy's fiction, which the Library of America now presents in full for the first time in deluxe collector's edition. The Oasis (1949), a wicked satire about a failed utopian community, and The Groves of Academe (1952), a pioneering campus novel depicting the insular and often absurd world of academia, burnished her reputation as an acerbic truth-teller, but it was with A Charmed Life (1955), a searing story of small-town infidelity, that McCarthy fully embraced the frank and avant-garde treatment of gender and sexuality that would inspire generations of readers and writers. Also included are all eight of McCarthy's short stories, four from her collection Cast a Cold Eye (1950), and four collected here for the first time
