The keep : a novel by Jillian Becker( Book )

19 editions published between 1967 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two children, descendants of Russian-Jewish immigrants, are living in Johannesburg. Josephine is a plain, thoughtful girl: her older brother Simon has all the markings of a delinquent - or a leader of men. Their father, a lawyer with political ambitions, is at odds with his wife, Freda, who despises South African society and has pretensions to culture. We follow this family through the late nineteen-thirties and into the start of the war years. Josephine becomes ever more aware of the rift between her parents and the gulf between black and white. Simon amazes and appalls with outbreaks of bizarre and terrifying violence. The Europeans of this story - all but Simon, who could seem to personify Africa - have shut themselves up into an apparently safe castle of prejudice and self-deception, while dangerous reality waits unavoidably outside its walls and beyond the frail glass of its windows

Giving up : the last days of Sylvia Plath by Jillian Becker( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giving Up is Jillian Becker's intimate account of her brief but extraordinary time with Sylvia Plath during the winter of 1963, the last months of the poet's life. Abandoned by Ted Hughes, Sylvia found companionship in the home of Becker and her husband, who helped care for the estranged couple's two small children while Sylvia tried to rest. In clear-eyed recollections unclouded by the intervening decades, Becker describes the events of Sylvia's final days and suicide: her physical and emotional state, her grief over Hughes's infidelity, her mysterious meeting with an unknown companion the night before her suicide and the harsh aftermath of her funeral. Alongside this tragic conclusion is a beautifully rendered portrait of a friendhsip between two very different women."--Jacket
