Folly by Susan Minot( Book )

31 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If there was one thing Lilian Eliot might have said about herself, it was that she knew her own mind. She was not a flighty girl; no one in Boston in 1917 would have said that about her. She wrote her thank-you notes promptly and had some wit which saved her from being too prim. No great misfortune had darkened her eighteen years - in the distance now was the war - but otherwise there was no reason for her life not to be full and prosperous and happy. But how does
Rapture by Susan Minot( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a single interlude -- a brief encounter of old lovers; two bodies entwined on a bed at midday -- Minot defines the distance that erupts at what seems to be the height of connection, as well as the extent to which the senses deceive, and the intensely private eroticism of fantasy and the imagination. Minot's lovers are mesmerizing in their individual journeys -- one moving toward a kind of holy consummation, the other toward abnegation and blank despair. This is the wayward history of their efforts to make contact with each other while deluding themselves about the nature of the contact they're making. Graphic, erotic, provocative, Rapture is a meditation on romantic love, sex, and their reflections in the life of the mind. -- Publisher description

Why I don't write : and other stories by Susan Minot( Book )

5 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A superb collection of short fiction--her first in thirty years and spanning many geographies--from the critically acclaimed author of Monkeys, Evening, and Thirty Girls A writer dryly catalogs the myriad reasons she cannot write; an artist bicycles through protests in lower Manhattan and ruminates on an elusive lover; an old woman on her deathbed calls out for a man other than her husband; a hapless fifteen-year-old boy finds himself in sexual peril; two young people in the 1990s fall helplessly in love, then bicker just as helplessly, tortured by jealousy and mistrust. In each of these stories Minot explores the difficult geometry of human relations, the lure of love and physical desire, and the lifelong quest for meaning and connection. Her characters are all searching for truth, in feeling and in action, as societal norms are upended and justice and coherence flounder. Urgent and immediate, precisely observed, deeply felt, and gorgeously written, the stories in Why I Don't Write showcase an author at the top of her form"--

The sleeve should be illegal & other reflections on art at the Frick by Frick Collection( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explore the treasures of The Frick Collection through the eyes of a diverse group of contemporary writers, artists and other cultural figures, from George Condo, Lydia Davis and Lena Dunham to Abbi Jacobson and Edmund White. A cultural haven for museum goers in New York and beyond, The Frick Collection holds masterpieces by some of the most celebrated artists in the Western tradition, among them Bellini, Gainsborough, Goya, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Whistler -- installed in a Gilded Age mansion on Fifth Avenue. This book includes 61 reflections on the Frick's preeminent collection, with the contributors writing about an artwork that has personal significance, sharing how it has moved, challenged, puzzled or inspired them. Each text is accompanied by an illustration of the artwork. For example, writer Jonathan Lethem tells how he started going to the Frick as a teenager, to gaze at Hans Holbein's portraits of Thomas Cromwell and Sir Thomas More. Historian Simon Schama revels in Turner's Mortlake Terrace: Early Summer Morning, which reminds him of his own childhood growing up next to the River Thames. This engaging anthology attests to the inspirational power of art and reminds us that there is no one way to look." --
