New York. 1991. Random House. 1st Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket.Remainder Mark. 15. 345 pages. March 1991. hardcover. Jacket design by George Corsillo. 0679401490. keywords:. inventory # 23082. FROM THE PUBLISHER - With considerable, if uneven, success, the four novellas in this volume trace the intersecting paths of characters met in Gifford’s WILD AT HEART. In the best and longest, ‘59 and Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango,’ Gifford adapts real-life incidents to his fictional purpose as his ‘weird and dangerous’ heroine with ‘8-ball black eyes’ and a Caribbean-born, drug-dealing santeria priest whose rituals require human sacrifice team up to kidnap two American teenagers in Mexico and take them along on a crime spree in Texas and California. This story leads back to Louisiana and Lula’s mother, Marietta Fortune, who announces, ‘There’s a Devil and he don’t never quit,’ the lietmotif of these violence-ridden tales. Amid the usually abortive and often fatal activities of crime lords and small-time losers, Sailor and Lula Ripley prosper in both love and fortune, in the final story proud of their 30-year-old son, Pace, who’s been in trouble and out, now leading trekking expeditions in Nepal. Gifford’s sharp characterization, of people with names like Coot Veal, Dalceda Delahoussaye, the Rev. Goodin Plenty, is generally well served by on-pitch dialogue, though Sailor and Lula, in their 50s still sounding like adolescent runaways, provide an unconvincing center for the wild careenings elsewhere on stage. This volume is part of the publisher’s Literary Landscape series, promoting works of fiction that claim to bring a particular setting vividly to life. - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. . ISBN: 0679401490., New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1991. 328 pp + index, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "Carrying us back into magical landscapes, recovering for us - and profoundly validating - the enchantment and wonder we long ago experienced, the great child psychologist Bruno Bettelheim gives us his most universally enriching work: a brilliant and moving revelatiion of the irreplaceable importance of fairy tales - how they educate, support, and liberate the emotions of children. First, with an illuminative power that startles and delights, (he) opens up to us the real content of the great fairy tales. How, beneath their surface shimmer of palaces and princesses, fairies and witches, wishes and spells, they deal in the profoundest ways with the emotional turmoils of childhood: the feelings of smallness and helplessness, with the terrifying perceptions of outward dangers, with the even more terrifying anxieties the child feels possessed by, with the mystery of the World Outside, and of the Stranger, with the child's deepest questions about self and about the future. Next we see 'how' fairy tales, which all cultures through the ages have depended on for instructing and sustaining their young, help children cope with their emotions and their world and how they reveal the child, subconsciously, to him- or herself. Then, examining the stories one by one (from Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty to Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, The Three Bears, jack and the Beanstalk, and many others), Dr. Bettelheim shows specifically how they work to support and free the child. This is how, wandering in enchanted worlds, children begin to sense for themselves the textures of justice, fidelity, love, courage -- not as lessons imposed, but as discovery, as experience, as an organic part of the adventure of living. (He) persuades us to bring the great fairy tales back to our young as a priceless source of esthetic pleasure and emotional sustenance. Hi book is essential reading for everyone who cares about literature and myth, for all who were reared on fairy tales, and for all who were deprived of them." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, a few very small light areas of discoloration on top of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing.. Reprint. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good., Alfred A. Knopf, 1991, Picador, November 2004. Paper Back Paper Back. New. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and winner of the Pen/Hemingway Award, <i>Housekeeping</i> is a beautiful, lonely novel that transcribes the story of Ruth and Lucille-sisters orphaned and initiated into a desultory series of upbringings, first with their grandmother, then their bumbling great-aunts, and finally their mother's sister, Sylvie, an eccentric transient. As their childhood gives way to the self-consciousness of adolescence, Robinson draws upon her story's landscape-a glacial lake in the upper northwest-to flesh out the difficult themes of loss, impermanence, and survival. This book reads 'slow as poetry' (to quote an able reviewer) and, for all its difficult loveliness, stuns you with its distilled and haunting lyricism. 219 pp., Picador

A modern classic, Housekeeping is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, their eccentric and remote aunt. The family house is in the small Far West town of Fingerbone set on a glacial lake, the same lake where their grandfather died in a spectacular train wreck, and their mother drove off a cliff to her death. It is a town "chastened by an outsized landscape and extravagant weather, and chastened again by an awareness that the whole of human history had occurred elsewhere." Ruth and Lucille's struggle toward adulthood beautifully illuminates the price of loss and survival, and the dangerous and deep undertow of transience. contemporary,domestic life,fiction,literary,literature and fiction,women's fiction Literature & Fiction, Picador
