Queenie, Letters from an Australian Army Nurse, 1915-1917

Pat Richardson

Queenie, Letters from an Australian Army Nurse, 1915-1917 by Pat Richardson

Edith Florence “Queenie” Avenell was twenty-five years old when she enlisted in the Australian Army Nursing Service the day after the Australian and New Zealand forces stormed the beaches of Turkey on that first Anzac Day in 1915. Resigning from her position as matron of the Innisfail Hospital, she set out to do her bit for the war effort by nursing Australian soldiers. The letters she regularly wrote home provide a very personal view of the war and the world of the times through the eyes of a modern, independent young woman.

The book reveals the lives of nurses behind the front lines during...

Sallies, Romps, Portraits, and Send-Offs: Selected Prose, 2000-2016

August Kleinzahler

Sallies, Romps, Portraits, and Send-Offs: Selected Prose, 2000-2016 by August Kleinzahler

Sixteen years' worth of incisive essays by the great poet and memoirist

"Witty, gritty poet and memoirist Kleinzahler" (Publishers Weekly) has gathered the best of sixteen years' worth of essays, remembrances, and reviews in this scabrous and essential collection, setting down his thoughts about great poets and bad poets, about kvetching fiction writers and homicidal musicians, about eccentric critics and discerning nobodies, always with insight and humor, and never suffering fools gladly.

Here, in Sallies, Romps, Portraits, and Send-Offs, August Kleinzahler eulogizes famous friends, warts and...

My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues

Pamela Paul

My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues by Pamela Paul

Imagine keeping a record of every book you've ever read. What would this reading trajectory say about you? With passion, humor, and insight, the editor of The New York Times Book Review shares the stories that have shaped her life.

Pamela Paul has kept a single book by her side for twenty-eight years - carried throughout high school and college, hauled from Paris to London to Thailand, from job to job, safely packed away and then carefully removed from apartment to house to its current perch on a shelf over her desk - reliable if frayed, anonymous-looking yet deeply personal. This book has a...

The Inky Digit of Defiance: Tony Harrison: Selected Prose 1966-2016

Tony Harrison

The Inky Digit of Defiance: Tony Harrison: Selected Prose 1966-2016 by Tony Harrison

In this richly varied selection of Tony Harrison's provocative prose of the last fifty years, the great poet of page, stage and screen presents a lifetime's thinking about art and politics, creativity and mortality. In so doing, he takes us on an extraordinary journey through languages and across continents and millennia, from his Nigerian Lysistrata to the British Raj of his version of Racine's Phèegrave;dre, to post-Communist Europe for the film Prometheus to a one-off performance of The Kaisers of Carnuntum at the Roman amphitheatre in Austria on the Danube, to the peace camp at Greenham Common,...
