9 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At every turn, Ekaterina's rise to fortune is rattled by her consuming appetite for pubescent boys. Her novel Georgie Boy earns her wealth enough to take over the top floor of an aging resort hotel in the Bodarks, as her idol, Nabokov, had taken over a suite in a Swiss resort hotel after the success of Lolita. Indeed Ekaterina's story becomes, in ways planned and unplanned, something of a wicked inversion of Nabokov's wicked novel ... with many twists of its own. Ekaterina is a masterwork of illusion and allusion, and like all of Donald Harington's novels it affords delight from beginning to end

Stay More : the world of Donald Harington( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Harington describes the origins of Stay More, the fictional Ozark village where he set his novels. Harington shares his childhood memories of the tiny Arkansas town of Drakes Creek (the model for Stay More) and reflects on his troubled relationships with his parents and the devastating loss of his hearing at the age of 12. Harington also recounts the dubious joys of getting his early novels into print, with their sales never matching the favorable notices, blending these stories with the humorous perspectives on the writer's life--a writer deeply rooted in American folk traditions whose triumphs seemed always to be matched by deep disappointments, a novelist who blends comic relief into his tragedies and poignant 'tragic relief' into his comedies
Farther along : the world of Donald Harington, part 2 by Brian Walter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What happens when a sprightly divorcee school teacher writes a fan letter to a lonely, depressed novelist? Will this improbable new muse somehow save his life and help him revive his career? In this sequel to Stay More: the World of Donald Harington (2013), Arkansawyer Donald Harington tells how the fateful letter from his future wife, Kim, helped inspire the ["quirkiest, most original body of work in contemporary U.S. letters" (Boston Globe)]. The course of true love never did run less smooth -- or more funny -- through creative (and rejected) marriage proposals, anniversary tricks, book collaborations, life-threatening illnesses, and a series of boldly and playfully experimental novels that pushed the boundaries of American literature. Tampering eagerly with history (just never with fiction!), the Nabokov of the Ozarks spins a yarn worthy of his novels, his beloved Fate Thing peopling his own life with lovers and liars, despairs and delights that even he could hardly have dreamed up."
