In Teaching Salinger's NINE STORIES, Brad McDuffie ... provides an examination of Salinger's Nine Stories that is forensically detailed and thought provoking. ... The book's greatest value may be in its ability to display the interaction between each separate story, revealing Salinger's Nine Stories to be a unified work of art. This achievement is long overdue and is an innovative and invaluable resource. - Kenneth Slawenski, author of J. D. Salinger: A Life This study is the most thorough and close reading that we have on Salinger's Nine Stories." - James Finn Cotter, Professor of English, Mount Saint Mary College

Lives Of The Novelists

Author: John Sutherland
Editor: Yale University Press

Size: 18,37 MB
Format: PDF, Mobi

No previous author has attempted a book such as this: a complete history of novels written in the English language, from the genre's seventeenth-century origins to the present day. In the spirit of Dr. Johnson’s Lives of the Poets, acclaimed critic and scholar John Sutherland selects 294 writers whose works illustrate the best of every kind of fiction—from gothic, penny dreadful, and pornography to fantasy, romance, and high literature. Each author was chosen, Professor Sutherland explains, because his or her books are well worth reading and are likely to remain so for at least another century. Sutherland presents these authors in chronological order, in each case deftly combining a lively and informative biographical sketch with an opinionated assessment of the writer's work. Taken together, these novelists provide both a history of the novel and a guide to its rich variety. Always entertaining, and sometimes shocking, Sutherland considers writers as diverse as Daniel Defoe, Henry James, James Joyce, Edgar Allan Poe, Virginia Woolf, Michael Crichton, Jeffrey Archer, and Jacqueline Susann. Written for all lovers of fiction, Lives of the Novelists succeeds both as introduction and re-introduction, as Sutherland presents favorite and familiar novelists in new ways and transforms the less favored and less familiar through his relentlessly fascinating readings.
