"Nostromo" is a novel of passion, identity and politics. In the unstable Latin American republic of Costaguana where yet another dictator has seized power, trusted foreman Nostromo finds his integrity and self-worth bitterly tested by the treasure of the San Tome silver mines he must save. Poetic, ironic and searching, exploring man's vulnerability and corruptibility, social destiny and self-delusion, "Nostromo" embroils us in a world of conflict.

29 Delafield, E. M. DIARY OF A PROVINCIAL LADY
Persephone Books Ltd 2014 1903155959 / 9781903155950 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. It was thus in 1930 that Delafield's most popular and enduring work _The Diary of a Provincial Lady_ was born. This largely autobiographical novel substituted the names of "Robin" and "Vicky" for her own children, Lionel and Rosamund. Edmée Elizabeth Monica Dashwood, née de la Pasture (9 June 1890 - 2 December 1943), commonly known as E. M. Delafield, was a prolific English author. She is best known for her largely autobiographical Diary of a Provincial Lady, which took the form of a journal of the life of an upper-middle class Englishwoman living mostly in a Devon village of the 1930s. In sequels, the Provincial Lady buys a flat in London, travels to America, attempts to find war-work during the Phoney War, and tours the Soviet Union.

THE ROSE AND THE KEY (POCKET CLASSICS), FANU, SHERIDAN LE
36 FANU, SHERIDAN LE THE ROSE AND THE KEY (POCKET CLASSICS)
Sutton Publishing Ltd 1994 0750906707 / 9780750906708 Paperback Very Good 
A beautiful young heroine-A cruel and unfeeling mother-A one-eyed spy-A mes merist-A lunatic asylum. These are the perfect components for a Victorian s ensation novel, and in The Rose and the Key, J. Sheridan Le Fanu weaves the m into a thrilling Gothic mystery. The terror builds slowly, as young Maud Vernon and her old cousin Maximilla enjoy a sketching tour through Wales. Ominously, they find themselves shad owed by a sinister one-eyed man. And when they return to Roydon Hall, Maud' s home, things become yet worse. Her mother, the imperious Lady Vernon, see ms to loathe her, and there are other concerns as well-a mysterious will, a n intimidating man clothed all in black, and the satanic mesmerist Doctor A ntomarchi. Le Fanu slowly unfolds his plot, building the mystery and suspen ce until the shocking climax, where Maud escapes her cruel mother to visit the home of the great Lady Mardykes, only to find that she has escaped one hell, only to enter one far worse! This edition is the first to follow the original text, as serialized in Charles Dickens's weekly All the Year Round in 1871. Featuring notes, the text of contemporary reviews, and contextual documents such as a letter from Dickens to Le Fanu, this is the first-ever scholarly edition of the novel. Highlighting this edition is a groundbreaking new introduction by Frances Chiu, which argues for consideration of The Rose and the Key as Le Fanu's statement on the troubled relations between England and Ireland and calls for a reevaluation of his ideology and politics.
