An American Dream

By Mailer, Norman

New York: Dell, 1976. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. spine creasing, edge wear; War hero, ex-Congressman, a professor of `popular but somewhat notorious reputation', television personality and husband of the rich and beautiful Deborah ('a girl who would have been bored by a diamond as big as the Ritz'), Stephen Rojack lived the American Dream. But his enviable life concealed a strange tension, the constant `itch to jump', and when one day he finally cracks and strangles his luscious wife, he unleashes a personality of undreamt-of ferocity. A wanted murderer, Rojack is suddenly catapulted into an alien world of gangsters, crumbling tenements and downtown bars. Here, he meets Cherry, a small-time singer who ekes out her living in sleazy nightclubs, waiting for a break. She's the woman Rojack falls for, dangerously, desperately, tragically... A powerful exploration of one man's quest for depravity, An American Dream shocked the USA on first publication in 1965 with its graphic depictions of sex and violence. One of the key works of twentieth-century American literature, the novel's white-hot prose makes it, for many, Mailer's finest achievement.

By Eliot, George

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1961-06-01. Riverside ed. Paperback. Good. spine creases, light edge wear; 'Was her life to be always like this? - always bringing some new source of inward strife?'

As she grows older, Maggie's discovery of romantic love draws her once more into a struggle to reconcile familial and moral claims with her own desires. Strong-willed, compassionate, and intensely loyal, Maggie seeks personal happiness and inner peace but risks rejection and ostracism in her close-knit community.

George Eliot's most autobiographical novel was also her most controversial, and has been the subject of animated debate ever since
