Atwood, Margaret, 1939-  
Cat's Eye

Publisher: NY, Doubleday, c1988.
[xv], 446 p.; 24 cm. "Cat's Eye is the story of Elaine Risley, a controversial painter who returns to Toronto, the city of her youth, for a retrospective of her art. Engulfed by vivid images of the past, she reminisces about a trio of girls who initiated her into the fierce politics of childhood and its secret world of friendship, longing, and betrayal. Elaine must come to terms with her own identity as a daughter, a lover, an artist, and a woman-- but above all she must seek release from her haunting memories. Disturbing, hilarious, and compassionate, Cat's Eye is a breathtaking novel of a woman grappling with the tangled knot of her life." Stock#43892. Vg / dj good+.

Dorsey, Yvonne  
Run To My River
 Picture
Publisher: Yvonne Dorsey, 2008.
ISBN: 9781419651991 Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "What is you find yourself standing beside the Choptank River, in the wilds of Maryland, imagining the adventure-filled lives of the Native American Indians who dwelled in that area, centuries before you stood on that ground? What if you also unimagined a wonderful story of two women, living centuries apart, and yet experiencing so many of the same events and feelings in their lives? Author Yvonne Dorsey has done just that, in her compelling new novel, Run to My River, in which Shaatuck, a Choptaugh Indian, and Shannon, a modern-day American, discover an incredible connection that allows them to become friends and help one another. They may live in starkly different times, but they share so many of the same passions, heartaches, fears, and joys. This book will delight anyone who has a similar love of nature - particularly the woodlands and waterways of the East Coast. In addition, it will be enjoyed by those who share the author's abiding love and respect for the American Indian, as well as the Creator of all. Each chapter in the book is capped with an original poem by the author, reflecting that chapter's theme. Yvonne Dorsey deftly captures the eternal spirit and grace to be found in her characters' heartwarming lives, and the ever-flowing river that runs through them all." 244 pages. Book is in NEAR FINE (Like New) condition. Paper wrappers.

Glaspell, Susan, 1876-1948.  
Brook Evans, by Susan Glaspell.

Publisher: New York, Frederick A. Stokes, 1928..
3 p.l., 312 p. 19.5 cm. Susan Glaspell was a co-founder of the Provincetown Players and a feminist author. This novel has been reprinted by Persephone Books as a feminist classic. "Brook Evans, first published in 1928, explores similar themes to those found in Susan Glaspell's Fidelity and is also a novel about love. It begins simply enough, with a young couple who believe that their love can overcome all obstacles. The novel highlights with sensitivity and sadness how wrong that assumption can be, and traces the lasting effects of their love over three generations; and the reader is left wondering whether renouncing love out of obedience to society is in the end more dangerous than following one's heart's desires." NS. Stock# 39,714. Good+/ covers soiled.

Very Good with no dust jacket. First Paperback Edition. 1. Soft Cover. ISBN: 0345441265 First Ballantine edition (stated, September 2000). Publisher's glossy wraps. 8vo. 311, (17) pp. This is an unmarked copy, covers slightly worn, else near fine. VERY GOOD. When free-spirited Batsheva moves into the close-knit Orthodox community of Memphis, Tennessee, the already precarious relationship between the Ladies Auxiliary and their teenage daughters is shaken to the core. In this extraordinary novel, Tova Mirvis takes us into the fascinating and insular world of the Memphis Orthodox Jews, one ripe with tradition and contradiction. Warm and wise, enchanting and funny, The Ladies Auxiliary brilliantly illuminates the timeless struggle between mothers and daughters, family and self, religious freedom and personal revelation, honoring the past and facing the future. An unforgettable story of uncommon atmosphere, profound insight, and winning humor, The Ladies Auxiliary is a triumphant work of fiction. Trade Paperback. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

Publisher: Julian Messner, Inc., 1942 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Men have a word for women like Flora Shawn. They resent her male honesty, her possessiveness, and her disappointment in their weakness. This penetrating and exciting study of feminine psychology is a story of an uncompromising and a destructive woman. Samuel Rogers has put into Flora Shawn the best of his distinguished talent. He is too skilled and mature a novelist to hesitate before the need to reveal the deepest and most intimate thoughts of his characters. Drawn with knowledge and deep feeling, they are wholly typical of the college community..Flora Shawn fought to possess completely the man she loved. She sought, as most women seek, a sense of permanence, of not being alone, and this memorable novel by a distinguished author helps to explain why men do not understand women and why women are disappointed in men.." 281 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; some edgewear.

Book. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "..As crowds of excellent books have already been addressed to wives, mothers, and daughters, a useful and interesting volume might now be devoted to that hitherto neglected class, the single ladies..In fiction to sketch an unexaggerated outline of a truly graceful female character, without formality, and without any romantic impossibilities of perfection, is an almost hopeless enterprise. The idea too, of a novel not ending in marriage, with perfect happiness, and at least $1500 a year, is, to all concerned, as unsatisfactory and disappointing as a nut without a kernel.." 234 pages.
