In flagrante by Christopher Killip( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Killip's 'In Flagrante' is often cited as the most important photographic book on England in the 1980s. Published in 1988, this work portrays the steady decline of communities in Northern England - former manufacturing powerhouses that were gradually compromised by the policies of Margaret Thatcher and her predecessors from the mid-1970s onward. Killip's black-and-white photographs provide an unflinching look at these disenfranchised northern towns and the poverty visited upon them by deindustrialization

Translated accounts : a novel by James Kelman( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in an unnamed territory that appears to be under military rule. It is narrated in the first person, but the narrators remain anonymous, as do most of the other characters. The language used is atypically English, but akin to the translations that might appear in overseas "foreign offices." Perhaps someone transcribed firsthand accounts of certain incidents, events, and states of mind, as narrated by participants in the struggle, and then passed on the transcription for translation; or perhaps the accounts were simply translated firsthand into English and edited later."--Jacket

Stranger shores : literary essays, 1986-1999 by J. M Coetzee( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The only author ever to win the Booker Prize twice, J.M. Coetzee is one of the world's greatest novelists. Now his many admirers can have the pleasure of reading his significant body of literary criticism. This volume gathers together for the first time in book form twenty-six pieces on books and writing. Stranger Shores opens with "What Is a Classic?" in which Coetzee explores the answer to his own question - "What does it mean in living terms to say that the classic is what survives?"--By way of T.S. Eliot, Johann Sebastian Bach and Zbigniew Herbert. His subjects range from the great eighteenth- and nineteenth-century writers Daniel Defoe, Samuel Richardson, and Ivan Turgenev to the great German modernists Rilke, Kafka, and Musil to the giants of late-twentieth-century literature, among them Harry Mulisch, Joseph Brodsky, Jorge Luis Borges, Salman Rushdie, Amos Oz, Naguib Mahfouz, Nadine Gordimer, and Doris Lessing."--Jacket
