Heroine by Gail Scott( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 2019 in English and French and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A classic feminist novel, resonating in a world of increasing radicalization, featuring a new foreword by Eileen Myles. It's October, 1980, the 10th anniversary of the October Crisis, when a radical Quebec group's actions led to the invocation of the War Measures Act. In a bathtub in a rooming house in Montreal in 1980, a woman tries to imagine a new life for herself: a life after a passionate affair with a man while falling for a woman, a life that makes sense after her deep involvement in far left politics during the turbulent '70s of Quebec, a life whose form she knows can only be grasped as she speaks it. A new, revised edition of a seminal work of edgy, experimental feminism. With a foreword by Eileen Myles."--

Spare parts plus two by Gail Scott( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A welfare cheque floats down the river, a cowboy spreads the Word of the Lord and crotches tick like clocks: the world of Spare Parts is unpredictable, evocative and vividly distorted. Its initial appearance, in 1981, caused a stir; at a time when linear narrative was the m.o. of feminist writing, Gail Scott had the nerve to fracture and dislocate her stories and her language. Spare Parts is as vital as it was twenty years ago. Scott's densely textured tales about the world of growing up female in a small town, where violence lurks just beneath the skin, recreate the uncertainty of life. Their incantatory language and tough imagery are as relevant and crucial now as they were then. This edition adds two new pieces, including 'Bottoms Up', an essay on narrative that first appeared on the 'Narrativity' website Scott co-edits
