The 100 best nonfiction books: No 45 – A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf (1929) | Books A Room of One’s Own is both a landmark in feminist thought and a rhetorical masterpiece, which started life as lectures to the literary societies of Newnham and Girton Colleges, Cambridge, in October 1928. It was then published by the Hogarth Press in 1929 in a revised and expanded edition that has never been out of print. Barely 40,000 words long, addressed to audiences of female students in the hothouse atmosphere of interwar creativity, this became an unforgettable and passionate assertion of women’s creative originality by one of the great writers of the 20th century. Virginia Woolf, no question, transformed the English literary landscape. Well, all of the above. Woolf herself assists this response. At first, she masks the narrator of her argument in the guise of several fictional Marys: Mary Beton, Mary Seton or Mary Carmichael, an allusion to a 16th-century ballad about a woman hanged for rejecting marriage and motherhood. “A very queer, composite being thus emerges.

Gutenberg Tim Parks reviews ‘Nemesis’ by Philip Roth · LRB 4 November 2010 In the 1980s I translated some of the late novels and stories of Alberto Moravia, elderly but still prolific. These books, which abandoned observation of society for concerns with ageing and sex, did not get a good press and have since disappeared from the shelves, while Moravia’s earlier work will be a part of Italian education for decades to come. Translating, I was struck by the almost cavalier perfunctoriness of the late books, combined with a ruthless narrative dispatch. The weightiest themes were tossed off with an insouciance that bordered on slapstick. Death is everywhere in these novels. Every aspect of plot development is bent to Roth’s theme – he is unashamedly didactic. Since The Dying Animal in 2001 Roth has alternated between protagonists of his own age (The Dying Animal, Everyman, Exit Ghost, The Humbling) and young men on the brink of adulthood (Indignation, Nemesis). At no point is any character allowed to challenge Roth’s scheme. Soon enough his mistake is punished.

Free-ebooks Want to know about Ireland now? Here are the books to read Anne Enright The Spinning Heart by Donal Ryan The Spinning Heart gives us a kaleidoscopic view of rural and small-town Ireland in the years after the economic crash. Donal Ryan knows everything about his characters: not just their hopes, dreams and disappointments, but also the numbers on their payslips and social security cheques. He is a generous writer and the book is filled with light and shade, love and tragedy. There is, for a young male writer, very little disgust. Eimear McBride Beatlebone by Kevin Barry I would heartily recommend Kevin Barry’s brilliant Beatlebone to anyone arriving in Ireland for the first time. There is such an unusual quality to the atmosphere he creates, with these people clinging to a rock at the end of the world soaked by the rain and drenched in the most glorious language; and yet it is also incredibly evocative of that unique place. Joseph O’Connor The Ross O’Carroll-Kelly series Diarmaid Ferriter Amongst Women by John McGahern Claire Kilroy Marina Carr
