    LSU Press 1987; US$ 17.95

    It seems appropriate, if not inevitable, that one of our best critics should be the foremost authority on one of our best novelists. Cleanth Brooks, the author of three seminal studies of William Faulkner, has been a serious student of that master craftsman’s fiction for more than four decades. In this new collection, Brooks considers many of the important... more...

  • The Grand Gennaroby Steven Belluscio; Garibaldi Lapolla

    Rutgers University Press 2009; US$ 27.95

    The Grand Gennaro, a riveting saga set at the turn of the last century in Italian American Harlem, reflects on how youthful acts of cruelty and desperation follow many to the grave. A classic in the truest sense, this operatic narrative is alive once again, addressing the question: How does one become an "American"? more...

  • Fitzgerald and Hemingwayby Scott Donaldson

    Columbia University Press 2009; US$ 27.99

    F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway might have been contemporaries, but our understanding of their work often rests on simple differences. Hemingway wrestled with war, fraternity, and the violence of nature. Fitzgerald satirized money and class and the never-ending pursuit of a material tomorrow. Through the provocative arguments of Scott Donaldson,... more...

    Best known for his novels, including the National Book Award winners The Field of Vision and Plains Song , Nebraska-born author Wright Morris has long been regarded as one of America’s most gifted writers.

  • Cather Studies, Volume 9by Cather Studies; Guy J Reynolds; Melissa J. Homestead

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2011; US$ 40.00

    Linking Willa Cather to “the modern” or “modernism” still seems an eccentric proposition to some people. Born in 1873, Cather felt tied to the past when she witnessed the emergence of twentieth-century modern culture, and the clean, classical sentences in her fiction contrast starkly with the radically experimental prose of prominent modernists. Nevertheless,... more...
