Jean Rhys : a study of the short fiction by Cheryl Alexander Malcolm( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Jean Rhys: A Study of the Short Fiction, Cheryl Alexander Malcolm and David Malcolm provide the first full-length critical analysis of Rhys's contributions to the short story genre. Maintaining that Rhys's overriding interest was the outsider - "the underdog, the normally silenced, the excluded, the ignored"--The Malcolms examine the stories from the perspective of this motif. Selected stories - among them "Illusion," "Mannequin," and "Let Them Call It Jazz" - are given in-depth treatment, as are the heretofore neglected technical aspects of Rhys's work: narration, style, plot, action, and setting
Understanding Ian McEwan by David Malcolm( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding Ian McEwan provides a full discussion of the fiction written by one of Britain's most highly regarded novelists and the winner of the 1998 Booker Prize. David Malcolm places Ian McEwan's work - admired by critics for its polished, understated treatment of themes of aberrance and obsession - in the context of British literature's particular dynamism in the last decades of the twentieth century. He also examines McEwan's relationship to feminism, concern with rationalism and science, use of moral perspective, and proclivity toward fragmentation."--Jacket
British and Irish short-fiction writers, 1945-2000( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on British and Irish authors of short stories written between 1945 and 2000 that are traditional in subject matter and technique, and cover social, political and economic changes that occurred during this time. The Irish contribution to short fiction in English is second to none. Short fiction in languages other than English also plays a significant role in the postwar British and Irish literary world, including the use of the working-class Scottish dialect
Understanding Graham Swift by David Malcolm( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Malcolm discusses the novelist's use of major twentieth-century historical events to shape and deform the lives of his characters; his focus on the distortions and evasions that characterize the discussion of personal, local, and national histories; and his fascination with the complexities, sufferings, and joys that mark individual lives. Malcolm suggests that despite Swift's dark vision of human suffering, he tempers his writing with an intermittent focus on that which can redeem our failures, our losses, and our cruelties."--Jacket

18 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding John McGahern by David Malcolm( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Understanding John McGahern' surveys the life and work of the successful Irish novelist and short story writer whose career was launched with the 1963 publication of 'The Barracks'. Most widely known for the 1998 film adaptation of 'Amongst Women,' McGahern (1934-2006) has been enthusiastically received internationally and particularly in France, where some of the best and most extensive scholarship on his work has taken place. In this introduction to the writer and his body of work, David Malcolm identifies McGahern's primary concerns and assesses his popularity beyond the shores of Ireland."--Inside cover
