SpecificationsAbout the Author Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882 the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen first editor of The Dictionary of National Biography. After his death in 1904 Virginia and her sister the painter Vanessa Bell moved to Bloomsbury and became the centre of The Bloomsbury Group. This informal collective of artists and writers which included Lytton Strachey and Roger Fry exerted a powerful influence over early twentieth-century British culture. In 1912 Virginia married Leonard Woolf a writer and social reformer. Three years later her first novel The Voyage Out was published followed by Night and Day 1919 and Jacobs Room 1922. These first novels show the development of Virginia Woolfs distinctive and innovative narrative style. It was during this time that she and Leonard Woolf founded The Hogarth Press with the publication of the co-authored Two Stories in 1917 hand-printed in the dining room of their house in Surrey. Between 1925 and 1931 Virginia Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces from Mrs Dalloway 1925 to the poetic and highly experimental novel The Waves 1931. She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism short fiction journalism and biography including the playfully subversive Orlando 1928 and A Room of Ones Own 1929 a passionate feminist essay. This intense creative productivity was often matched by periods of mental illness from which she had suffered since her mothers death in 1895. On 28 March 1941 a few months before the publication of her final novel Between the Acts Virginia Woolf committed suicide.Author 1 Virginia WoolfFormat PaperbackEdition Number New EditionEditorial Review "Virginia Woolf stands as the chief figure of Modernism in England and must be included with Joyce and Proust in the realizaztion of experimental acheivements that has completely broken with tradition."-- The New York TimesISBN-10 0099470454ISBN-13 9780099470458Language EnglishView Full Specifications SpecificationsAbout the Author Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882 the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen first editor of The Dictionary of National Biography.

She died on February 19 2016.Author 1 Harper LeeFormat HardcoverEdition Number 1Editorial Review “Go Set a Watchman is such an important book perhaps the most important novel on race to come out of the white South in decades… New York Times Opinion Pages: Taking Note “Watchman is compelling in its timeliness.” Washington Post “Go Set a Watchman provides valuable insight into the generous complex mind of one of America’s most important authors.” USA Today “Harper Lee’s second novel sheds more light on our world than its predecessor did.” Time “[Go Set a Watchman] contains the familiar pleasures of Ms. Lee’s writing- the easy drawling rhythms the flashes of insouciant humor the love of anecdote.” Wall Street Journal “…the voice we came to know so well in To Kill a Mockingbird - funny ornery rulebreaking - is right here in Go Set a Watchman too as exasperating and captivating as ever.” Chicago Tribune “Don’t let ‘Go Set a Watchman’ change the way you think about Atticus Finch…the hard truth is that a man such as Atticus born barely a decade after Reconstruction to a family of Southern gentry would have had a complicated and tortuous history with race.” Los Angeles Times “A significant aspect of this novel is that it asks us to see Atticus now not merely as a hero a god but as a flesh-and-blood man with shortcomings and moral failing enabling us to see ourselves for all our complexities and contradictions.” Washington Post “The success of Go Set a Watchman... lies both in its depiction of Jean Louise reckoning with her father’s beliefs and in the manner by which it integrates those beliefs into the Atticus we know.” Time “Go Set a Watchman’s greatest asset may be its role in sparking frank discussion about America’s woeful track record when it comes to racial equality.” San Francisco Chronicle “Go Set a Watchman comes to us at exactly the right moment. All important works of art do. They come when we don’t know how much we need them.” Chicago Tribune “What makes Go Set a Watchman memorable is its sophisticated and even prescient view of the long march for racial justice. Remarkably a novel written that long ago has a lot to say about our current struggles with race and inequality.” Chicago Tribune “[Go Set a Watchman] captures some of the same small-town Southern humor and preoccupation with America’s great struggle: race.” Columbus Dispatch “Go Set a Watchman’s gorgeous opening is better than we could have expected.” Vanity Fair “Go Set a Watchman is more complex than Harper Lee’s original classic. A satisfying novel… it is in most respects a new work and a pleasure revelation and genuine literary event.” The Guardian “Lee’s ability with description is evident… with long sentences beautifully rendered and evoking a world long lost to history but welcoming all the same.” CNN “A coming-of-age novel in which Scout becomes her own woman…Go Set a Watchman’s voice is beguiling and distinctive and reminiscent of Mockingbird. It can’t be dismissed as literary scraps from Lee’s imagination. It has too much integrity for that.” The Independent “Atticus’ complexity makes Go Set a Watchman worth reading. With Mockingbird Harper Lee made us question what we know and who we think we are. Go Set a Watchman continues in this noble literary tradition.” New York Post “A deftly written tale… there’s something undeniably comforting and familiar about sinking into Lee’s prose once again.” People “One overarching theme that many critics have zeroed in on is that there is a lot to learn from the novel as both a writer and a reader.” Vulture “As Faulkner said the only good stories are the ones about the human heart in conflict with itself. And that’s a pretty good summation of Go Set a Watchman.” Daily Beast “Go Set a Watchman offers a rich and complex story… To make the novel about pinning the right label on Atticus is to miss the point.” Bloomberg View “[Go Set a Watchman is a] brilliant book that ruthlessly examines race relations Denver Post “In this powerful newly published story about the Finch family Lee presents a wider window into the white Southern heart and tells us it is finally time for us all to shatter the false gods of the past and be free.” NPRs "Code Switch" “[Go Set a Watchman is] filled with the evocative language realistic dialogue and sense of place that partially explains what made Mockingbird so beloved.” Buffalo NewsISBN-10 0062409859ISBN-13 9780062409850Language EnglishView Full Specifications SpecificationsAbout the Author Harper Lee was born in 1926 in Monroeville Alabama.

SpecificationsAbout the Author Though the domain of Jane Austen’s novels was as circumscribed as her life her caustic wit and keen observation made her the equal of the greatest novelists in any language. Born the seventh child of the rector of Steventon Hampshire on December 16 1775 she was educated mainly at home. At an early age she began writing sketches and satires of popular novels for her family’s entertainment. As a clergyman’s daughter from a well-connected family she had an ample opportunity to study the habits of the middle class the gentry and the aristocracy. At twenty-one she began a novel called “The First Impressions” an early version of Pride and Prejudice. In 1801 on her father’s retirement the family moved to the fashionable resort of Bath. Two years later she sold the first version of Northanger Abby to a London publisher but the first of her novels to appear was Sense and Sensibility published at her own expense in 1811. It was followed by Pride and Prejudice 1813 Mansfield Park 1814 and Emma 1815. After her father died in 1805 the family first moved to Southampton then to Chawton Cottage in Hampshire. Despite this relative retirement Jane Austen was still in touch with a wider world mainly through her brothers; one had become a very rich country gentleman another a London banker and two were naval officers. Though her many novels were published anonymously she had many early and devoted readers among them the Prince Regent and Sir Walter Scott. In 1816 in declining health Austen wrote Persuasion and revised Northanger Abby Her last work Sandition was left unfinished at her death on July 18 1817. She was buried in Winchester Cathedral. Austen’s identity as an author was announced to the world posthumously by her brother Henry who supervised the publication of Northanger Abby and Persuasion in 1818.Author 1 Jane AustenAuthor 2 Dr. Nicola BradburyAuthor 3 Dr.Keith CarabineFormat PaperbackEdition Number Reprint EditionEditorial Review Of all Jane Austens heroines Emma Woodhouse is the most flawed the most infuriating and in the end the most endearing. Pride and Prejudices Lizzie Bennet has more wit and sparkle; Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey more imagination; and Sense and Sensibilitys Elinor Dashwood certainly more sense--but Emma is lovable precisely because she is so imperfect. Austen only completed six novels in her lifetime of which five feature young women whose chances for making a good marriage depend greatly on financial issues and whose prospects if they fail are rather grim. Emma is the exception: "Emma Woodhouse handsome clever and rich with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her." One may be tempted to wonder what Austen could possibly find to say about so fortunate a character. The answer is quite a lot. For Emma raised to think well of herself has such a high opinion of her own worth that it blinds her to the opinions of others. The story revolves around a comedy of errors: Emma befriends Harriet Smith a young woman of unknown parentage and attempts to remake her in her own image. Ignoring the gaping difference in their respective fortunes and stations in life Emma convinces herself and her friend that Harriet should look as high as Emma herself might for a husband--and she zeroes in on an ambitious vicar as the perfect match. At the same time she reads too much into a flirtation with Frank Churchill the newly arrived son of family friends and thoughtlessly starts a rumor about poor but beautiful Jane Fairfax the beloved niece of two genteelly impoverished elderly ladies in the village. As Emmas fantastically misguided schemes threaten to surge out of control the voice of reason is provided by Mr. Knightly the Woodhouses longtime friend and neighbor. Though Austen herself described Emma as "a heroine whom no one but myself will much like " she endowed her creation with enough charm to see her through her most egregious behavior and the saving grace of being able to learn from her mistakes. By the end of the novel Harriet Frank and Jane are all properly accounted for Emma is wiser though certainly not sadder and the reader has had the satisfaction of enjoying Jane Austen at the height of her powers. --Alix Wilber --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.ISBN-10 1853260282View Full Specifications SpecificationsAbout the Author Though the domain of Jane Austen’s novels was as circumscribed as her life her caustic wit and keen observation made her the equal of the greatest novelists in any language.
