The Continental Op by Dashiell Hammett( Book )

3 editions published between 1975 and 1992 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Short, thick-bodied, mulishly stubborn, and indifferent to pain, Dashiell Hammett's Continetal Op was the prototype for generations of tough-guy detectives. In these stories the Op unravels a murder with too many clues, looks for a girl with eyes the color of shadows on polished silver, and tangles with a crooked-eared gunman called the Whosis Kid." --
The Dain curse by Dashiell Hammett( Book )

3 editions published between 1972 and 1989 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Continental Op is a short, squat, and utterly unsentimental tank of a private detective. Miss Gabrielle Dain Leggett is young, wealthy, and a devotee of morphine and religious cults. She has an unfortunate effect on the people around her: they have a habit of dying violently. Is Gabrielle the victim of a family curse? Or is the truth about her weirder and infinitely more dangerous? The Dain Curse is one of the Continental Op's most bizarre cases, and a tautly crafted masterpiece of suspense." --

Mortal beauty, God's grace : major poems and spiritual writings of Gerard Manley Hopkins by Gerard Manley Hopkins( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889) is one of English poetry's most brilliant innovators, and one of the most distinguished poets of any age. However, during his lifetime he was known not as a poet, but as a Jesuit priest, and his faith was essential to his work. This collection contains not only all of Hopkins's significant poetry, but also selections from his journals, sermons, and letters, all chosen for their spiritual guidance and insight. His writings combine an intense feeling for nature with an ecstatic awareness of its divine origins, most remarkably expressed in his magnificent and highly original 'sprung rhythm.' Because Hopkins was generally unsuccesful at publishing his poems, his genius did not begin to be appreciated until the first collection of his work appeared in 1918. Now, more than a hundred years after his death, his words are still a source of inspiration and sheer infectious joy in the radiance of God's creation."--Publisher's summary
Red harvest by Dashiell Hammett( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1989 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People called the place Poisonville. Poisonville was not just up for grabs: it had been grabbed already, and cut up and parceled out by two ruthless gangs. The Continental Op came to Poisonville on the summons of the last honest citizen. When he was murdered, the Op stayed on to punish the guilty-- even if that meant taking on an entire town. Red Harvest is more than a superb crime novel: it is a classic exploration of corruption and violence in the American grain." --
The real cool killers by Chester B Himes( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many people had reasons for killing Galen, a big Greek with too much money and too great a liking for young black girls. But there are complications-- like Sonny, high on hash, found standing over the body with a gun in his hand that fires only blanks; a street gang called the Moslems; a disappearing suspect; and the fact that Coffin Ed's daughter is up to her pretty little neck in the whole explosive business."
This journey by James Wright( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this final collection, which was left virtually complete at the time of his death, James Wright returns with haunting insistence to the themes that have become hallmarks of one of the enduring poetic voices of our time: the evocation of the author's Ohio childhood and youth; the intense, minute observation of the daily life of the classic culture of Italy, that any modern American poet has achieved.--Jacket blurb

James Joyce's Ulysses; a study by Stuart Gilbert( Book )

6 editions published between 1955 and 1962 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the passing of each year Ulysses receives wider recognition and greater acclaim as a modern literary classic. To comprehend Joyce's masterpiece fully, to gain insight into its significance and structure, the serious reader will find this analytical and systematic guide invaluable. In this exegesis, written under Joyce's supervision, Stuart Gilbert presents a work that is at once scholarly, authoritative, and stimulating. He has clarified the hitherto incomprehensible in Joyce and, at the same time, created a book that is in itself meaningful and significant"
