Benet, Mary Kathleen  
WRITERS IN LOVE Katherine Mansfield, George Eliot, Colette and the Men They Lived With

Publisher: G. K. Hall and Company Boston.
As New, 1984, Reprint, Paperback 0839828543 Used in wraps. A bright, clean copy - appears unread. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 273 pages; WRITERS IN LOVE is a fascinating exploration of love and work in the lives of Katherine Mansfield, George Eliot, and Colette. All three eminent writers shared at least one attribute - strong, nurturing relationships with men who were substantial achievers in their own right. All three women chose to immerse themselves in life as well as work. Unable-or unwilling-to renounce love in the name of art, or to give up the pursuit of work for the pursuit of love. Mansfield, Eliot, and Colette, along with their partners, Murry, Lewes, and Goudeket, come marvelously to life in these pages.

From the DJ: "Without trying to prove it, [this] book assumes that, rather than dying at twenty-nine in a tavern brawl, Christopher Marlowe staged his own death, fled to Europe, and went on to write the work attributed to Shakespeare. This is the starting point for a mischievous and brilliantly written biography of Marlowe, which turns out to be a life of the Bard as well." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 4 oz.)

Boyd, Valerie  
WRAPPED IN RAINBOWS A Biography of Zora Neale Hurston

Publisher: Virago Press Ltd London.
Very Good, 2004, Paperback 1860499961 Used in trade paperback. A clean, crisp copy marred only by a crease to the spine. ; B/W Photo Plates; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 625 pages; Zora Neale Hurston, one of the most influential African-American writers of the twentieth century, was a woman of enormous talent, remarkable drive and intellectual prowess. She published four novels, including her most famous, Their Eyes Were Watching God, two books of folklore, an autobiography, short stories and plays. Yet though she enjoyed some popularity during her lifetime, her greatest acclaim came posthumously. Nearly every black woman writer of significance - including Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and Alice Walker - acknowledges Zora Neale Hurston as their literary foremother. Wrapped in Rainbows is a compelling profile of this intrepid and inspiring woman. Valerie Boyd presents a full picture of the writer and the woman.

Carr, Virginia Spencer  
PAUL BOWLES A Life

Publisher: Scribner New York.
Very Good in Very Good dust jacket, 2004, First Edition; First Printing, Hardcover 0684196573 Used in boards and DJ. Black remainder mark to lower page edges; otherwise a bright and clean copy. Rubbing and edge creasing to the DJ. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 409 pages; It was Gore Vidal who suggested that Virginia Spencer Carr postpone her work on Tennessee Williams's biography in order to write the life of Paul Bowles, who was still alive at the time. Over a decade later Carr has written an erudite and compelling biography of Paul Bowles, the great American composer and writer. Born in 1910, Bowles grew up in New York and at a young age embarked upon an artistic journey that lead him all over the world - from Paris to Berlin, from Ceylon to Morocco. He studied music with composer Aaron Copland, befriended a generation of artists including Gertrude Stein and W.H. Auden, and married the writer Jane Auer. He composed music for plays and movies, wrote poetry, short stories and novels including THE SHELTERING SKY and THE DELICATE PREY. He captured the imaginations of American counter culturalists - both straight and gay - when he took up residence in Morocco, and began writing about it. Through years of research, extensive interviews and her friendship with Paul Bowles, Carr has gathered a great wealth of information about Bowles's childhood, his career, his marriage and his personal relationships. With her incredible depth of knowledge about, and intimacy with, Bowles and the details of his life, Carr has written an extraordinary biography of this most complex of American cultural icons.

Carroll, E. Jean  
HUNTER The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson

Publisher: Pocket Books/Simon & Schuster, Ltd. London.
Very Good+, 1997, Reprint, Paperback 0671712268 Used in trade paperback. A bright, clean copy - may be unread. Slight aging to the page edges, minor wear to the covers. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 341 pages; Although each of Hunter's books is a work of autiobography, only two biographers have attempted to sort the fact from the fiction. And only one woman was foolhardy enough to venture into the lion's den. E Jean Carroll joined Hunter at Woody Creek, and lived (just) to tell the tale. This wild ride of a book centrers around Hunter's story as he himself told it, interspersed with statements from his friends and colleagues that don't always measure up. But what else would you expect from the master of gonzo?

Carver, Maryann Burk  
WHAT IT USED TO BE LIKE A Portrait of My Marriage to Raymond Carver

Publisher: St. Martin's Press New York.
As New in Very Good+ dust jacket, 2006, First Edition; First Printing, Hardcover 0312332580 Used in boards and DJ. Signed by the author right below her printed name on the title page. A clean, crisp copy. Minor edgewear to the DJ. ; B/W Photos; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 356 pages; Raymond Carver's wife of twenty-five years powerfully reveals the evolution of their lives together, through love and separation andlove again, as Carver rose to prominence as one of the greatest American writers in the twentieth century I t all began with writing. Meeting Raymond Carver in 1955, when she was fifteen years old and he seventeen, Maryann Burk Carver recounts a tale of love at first sight in which the two teenagers got to know each other by sharing a two year long-distance correspondence that soon after found them married and with two small children. Over the next fifteen years, as Carver's fame grew, the family led a nomadic life, moving from school to school, teaching post to teaching post. Finally, in 1972, they settled in Cupertino, California where Raymond Carver gave his wife one of his sharpened pencils and bade her to write an account of their history. Maryann Carver has been doing just that all of these years, and the result is a breathtaking memoir of a marriage, replete with the intimacy of detail that fully reveals the illnesses and talents of this larger than life man, his complicated relationships, and his profound loves and losses. What It Used to Be Like brings to light, for the first time, Raymond Carver's lost years and stories, the 'stories behind the stories' of this most brilliant writer.; Signed by Author
