Secker & Warburg 2001 0436256177 / 9780436256172 First Hardcover Good+/Very Good 
'In early 1998 I went to Perth in Western Australia in order to attend the literature festival, and part of the arrangement was that I should go to Ka rratha to do their first ever literary dinner. Karratha is a mining town a long way further north. The landscape is extraordinary, being composed of v ast heaps of dark red earth and rock poking out of the never-ending bush. I imagine that Mars must have a similar feel to it. I went exploring and dis covered the bronze statue to Red Dog outside the town of Dampier. I felt st raight away that I had to find out more about this splendid dog. A few mont hs later I returned to Western Australia and spent two glorious weeks drivi ng around collecting Red Dog stories and visiting the places that he knew, writing up the text as I went along. I hope my cat never finds out that I h ave written a story to celebrate the life of a dog.'.

JAYBER CROW, Berry, Wendell

Counterpoint 2001 1582431604 / 9781582431604 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. "This is a book about Heaven," says Jayber Crow, "but I must say too that . . . I have wondered sometimes if it would not finally turn out to be a boo k about Hell." It is 1932 and he has returned to his native Port William to become the town's barber. Orphaned at age ten, Jayber Crow's acquaintance with loneliness and want ha ve made him a patient observer of the human animal, in both its goodness an d frailty. He began his search as a "pre-ministerial student" at Pigeonville College. There, freedom met with new burdens and a young man needed more than a mirr or to find himself. But the beginning of that finding was a short conversat ion with "Old Grit," his profound professor of New Testament Greek. "You have been given questions to which you cannot be given answers. You wi ll have to live them outâ??perhaps a little at a time." "And how long is that going to take?" "I don't know. As long as you live, perhaps." "That could be a long time." "I will tell you a further mystery," he said. "It may take longer." Wendell Berry's clear-sighted depiction of humanity's giftsâ??love and loss, joy and despairâ??is seen though his intimate knowledge of the Port William Membership.

"It was sometimes called the echo cave, and if you shouted your question lo ud enough in the right direction, you got an answer instead of an echo..." Clare and David-divided as children by a rigid social code that branded her as shanty Irish and him as gentry...brought together as adults by a desire that knew no class, no barriers, only the urgent hunger of two people dest ined to love-and ready to defy a world determined to keep them apart. Even at fifteen, David Power knew the echo would answer eleven-year-old Cla re O'Brien's dearest wish, to win a school prize. But it was years before D r. Power's cherished only son saw in the huckster's daughter the answer to his own heart's desire. Here in Castlebay, perched precariously on the seas ide cliffs, the lines between them were clearly drawn. Clare's only hope is to leave the town where time stopped, propelled by scholarships to Dublin, fueled by her own drive and brilliance, far from the insular, gossipy worl d of Castlebay and those in its thrall... Angela O'Hara, beautiful, insolat ed, a teacher trapped in the convent school, who risks everything to help C lare escape... Gerry Doyle, the town charmer who finds in Clare the woman h e vows to have at any price... Caroline Nolan, the beautiful, rich outsider who comes to plunder... For Clare, that was before the wild freedom of Dublin, and love. And David. Before fate drove them back to Castlebay, and the past... Editorial Reviews The bracing sea air brings little pleasure to the year-round residents of Castlebay, a village on the coast of Ireland, where class lines are strictly observed and morals publicly monitored.

Aisling's boldness brought Elizabeth out of her proper shell; later, her support carried Elizabeth through the painful end of her parents' chilly marriage. In return, Elizabeth's friendship helped Aisling endure her own unsatisfying marriage to a raging alcoholic. Through the years, they always believed they could survive anything, as long as they had each other. Now they're about to find out if they were right.

218 Binchy, Maeve MINDING FRANKIE
Knopf 2011 0307273563 / 9780307273567 First Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A crisp clean first edition, (as stated) no markings throughout: Reading a Maeve Binchy novel is like settling in for a cozy visit with an o ld friend. In vintage Binchy style, a cast of colorfully eccentric characte rs living in a snug Dublin neighborhood seamlessly weave in and out of each other's lives, united by family, faith, friendship, and community. When a young alcoholic learns he has fathered a child with a dying woman, he must step into the role of father, protector, and provider to his infant daughte r, Frankie, in a matter of weeks. Determined to succeed, though totally unp repared for his new responsibilities, Noel gets an essential assist from hi s visiting American cousin. Exercising her tremendous gifts of organization and insight, Emily cobbles together a neighborhood support system, featuri ng a few familiar faces from previous Binchy books. As everybody begins to mind Frankie, a suspicious social worker pokes her nose in where it doesn't belong, attempting to dredge up any dirt she can on Noel and his slightly unorthodox network of babysitters. Readers will need a box of tissues handy as the good-hearted residents of St. Jarlath's Crescent prove that it does indeed take a village to raise a child. --Margaret Flanagan Review 'One of Binchy's best works. She harmoniously handles a diverse group of ch aracters, the good deeds that characterize life in Ireland are believable, and the ending is sweet. One hopes to find Frankie in one of Binchy's futur e novels.' --Susan Rogers, Newark Star-Ledger   'Binchy's world view is a large, benevolent one, and the reader is happier for it . . . bless her big Irish heart.' -.
