The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats. At one end of it a coloured poster, too large for indoor display, had been tacked to the wall. It depicted imply an enormous face, more than a metre wide: the face of a man of about forty-five, with a heavy black moustache and ruggedly handsome features. Winston made for the stairs. It was no use trying the lift. Even at the best of times it was seldom working, and at present the electric current was cut off during daylight hours. It was part of the economy drive in preparation for Hate Week Availability: Items available for loan: Centeral Library (5) Call number: 813.54 O.G.O 2003, ...

Barchester Towers / Anthony Trollope.

by Trollope, Anthony, 1815-1882.

Series: Everyman's library ; 57Edition: 1st edMaterial type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction Publication details: New York : Knopf : Distributed by Random House, 1992Dissertation note: Anthony Trollope was well aware that the seemingly parochial power struggles that determine the action of Barchester Towers -- struggles whose comic possibilities he exploits to hilarious effect -- actually went to the heart of mid-Victorian English society, and had, in other times and other guises, led to civil war and constitutional upheaval. Thai awareness heightens the comedy and intensifies the drama in this magnificent novel and it transforms the story of a fight for ascendency among the clergy and dependants of a great English cathedral into something fundamental and universal.

Before and after / Rosellen Brown.

by Brown, Rosellen.

Edition: 1st ed.Material type: Text Text; Format: print ; Literary form: Fiction Publication details: New York : Farrar Straus Giroux, c1992Dissertation note: In the hospital of her small New Hampshire town, pediatrician Carolyn Reiser views the viciously smashed skull of teenager Martha Taverner, who had been a classmate of her son Jacob. Carolyn and her sculptor husband Ben soon discover that Jacob--mysteriously missing--was the girl's lover and is the prime suspect in her murder. Brown captures the Reisers' shock and disorientation as they confront the unthinkable, and makes credible Ben's instant decision to destroy the incriminating evidence--a blood-covered jack that he finds in the trunk of Jacob's car. As the family disintegrates during the course of Jacob's arrest and trial, the moral conflict that develops between Carolyn and Ben, though an inevitable outcome of their personalities and principles, is played out in a way that strains credulity somewhat. Yet readers will remain immersed in Brown's gripping story, mesmerized by the questions she raises and by the brave, intelligent, compassionate manner in which she deals with which she grapples with them.
