A gate at the stairs : a novel by Lorrie Moore( Book )

68 editions published between 2009 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 3,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... As the United States begins gearing up for war in the Middle East, twenty-year-old Tassie Keltjin, the Midwestern daughter of a gentleman hill farmer--his 'Keltjin potatoes' are justifiably famous--has come to a university town as a college student, her brain on fire with Chaucer, Sylvia Plath, Simone de Beauvoir. Between semesters, she takes a job as a part-time nanny. The family she works for seems both mysterious and glamorous to her, and although Tassie had once found children boring, she comes to care for, and to protect, their newly adopted little girl as her own. As the year unfolds and she is drawn deeper into each of these lives, her own life back home becomes ever more alien to her: her parents are frailer; her brother, aimless and lost in high school, contemplates joining the military. Tassie finds herself becoming more and more the stranger she felt herself to be, and as life and love unravel dramatically, even shockingly, she is forever changed ..."--Dust cover flap

Bark : stories by Lorrie Moore( Book )

41 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these eight masterful stories, Lorrie Moore, in a perfect blend of craft and bewitched spirit, explores the passage of time and summons up its inevitable sorrows and hilarious pitfalls to reveal her own exquisite, singular wisdom. In "Debarking," a newly divorced man tries to keep his wits about him as the United States prepares to invade Iraq, and against this ominous moment, we see--in all its irresistible hilarity and darkness--the perils of divorce and what can follow in its wake. In "Foes," a political argument goes grotesquely awry as the events of 9/11 unexpectedly manifest at a fund-raising dinner in Georgetown. In "The Juniper Tree," a teacher, visited by the ghost of her recently deceased friend, is forced to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" in a kind of nightmare reunion. And in "Wings," we watch the unraveling of two once-hopeful musicians who neither held fast to their dreams nor struck out along other paths as Moore deftly depicts the intricacies of dead ends and the workings of regret
Who will run the frog hospital? : a novel by Lorrie Moore( Book )

47 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Berie Carr, an American woman visiting Paris with her husband, summons up for us a summer in 1972 when she was fifteen, living in upstate New York and working as a ticket taker at Storyland, an amusement park where her beautiful best friend, Sils, was Cinderella in a papier-mache pumpkin coach." "We see these two girls together - Berie and Sils - intense, brash, set apart by adolescence and an appetite for danger. Driven by their own provincial restlessness and making their own (loose) rules, they embark on a summer that both shatters and intensifies the bond between them."--Jacket
Self-help : stories by Lorrie Moore( Book )

50 editions published between 1985 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a funny, cohesive and moving collection of stories in which Moore writes about the anxieties and defenses of women entangled in no-win situations--with husbands, lovers, families and memories of the past--and how they fend off their anxieties with irreverent, self-bolstering humor, by maintaining an inner monologue. The author deals with every emotional landmark that we and her characters reach--being the other woman, being cheated on, or falling out of love. Many of her stories, such as: "How to Become a Writer," "How to be an Other Woman," "How to Talk to Your Mother," improvise on the idea of a self-help manual. Other stories included are: "What is Seized," "A Kid's Guide to Divorce," and "Go Like This." ISBN 0-394-58921-4 : $13.95
