I have the only copy of A Song for Mary : An Irish-American Memory :: Dennis Smith (at least with the ISBN I listed).

It's a great memoir of growing up without a whole lot in NYC.

A couple of my "onlys" got ordered in September and at least one other falls off the list because another copy was listed.  Here's what I have now.  Book sale season is coming up soon, so I'll likely be adding a lot more books soon-- and my book selections tend toward the "only copy".

800 Years of Women's Letters :: Olga Kenyon

Olga Kenyon has unearthed eight centuries of lost voices, easily proving her assertion that women's letters are indeed "a great art form." Though readers will have heard of many of these correspondents--from Heloise (to Abelard, naturally) to Restoration playwright-spy Aphra Behn to Madame de Sévigné--most of us would be hard put to volunteer any solid information. Kenyon organizes these letters by theme, including friendship, childhood and education, war work, and political skills, and the juxtapositions are enlightening. "Housekeeping and Daily Life" features the Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva, who writes of being forced to leave her two-year-old tied to a chair while she searches Moscow for provisions; Queen Elizabeth I, who bemoans the bad shape Buckingham Palace is in; and Hannah Cullwick, a servant who anatomizes England's sharp class divisions, circa 1864. Cullwick writes of toiling in the kitchen while the upper classes lord it upstairs: "But it's always so with ladies and servants and of course there is a difference cause their bringing up is so different--servants may feel it sharply and do sometimes i believe, but it's best not to be delicate, nor mind what work we do so as it's honest." There is an evident high seriousness to Kenyon's enterprise--you won't find, for example, any of Nancy Mitford's sparkling missives. On the other hand, she does include a teasing letter from the great Victorian traveler Mary Kingsley, which begins: "My cannibal friends never eat human heads unless for religious purposes." -- Amazon.com Books

 

Ancient Rage :: Mary Lee Wile

From Publishers Weekly
In this startling double portrait of Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, and her cousin, the Virgin Mary, Wile creates an unusual glimpse into the psyche of women at the time of Christ. Elizabeth and Mary each gave birth to a son who suffered a sacrificial death seemingly far beyond the comprehension of his mother. Wile picks up the women's story nine years after the death of John the Baptist, as the elderly Mary visits her even older cousin and persuades her to attend a gathering of the Followers, the first Christians. Reluctantly, Elizabeth agrees, only to be revolted by the commemorative consumption of bread and wine, perceived by the Followers as the body and blood of Jesus. What follows is a dialogue between the two women in which Elizabeth releases her pent-up anger and grief over her son's death, while Mary attempts to bring her cousin to a greater understanding of the role John played in the life of Jesus, and of the inevitability of God's will. Mary has accepted the unacceptable, but Elizabeth will not be comforted and can't forgive what she considers to be a betrayal by God. As she reviews her life with Mary, she sets forth a vivid picture of what it was like to be a wife and mother in biblical times. Wile isn't averse to sensationalizing her material (the novel begins: "'What's it like to drink your son's blood,' asked Elizabeth"), but she eschews trite solutions and a pat ending. Her well-written, thought-provoking glimpse into the souls of two women is a significant contribution to the annals of biblical fiction.

Be More Chill :: Ned Vizzini
ISBN-13: 9780786809967 - ISBN-10: 0786809965

 

Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. Day after day, he dryly notes the small humiliations that come his way. Until the day he learns about the "squip," a pill-sized supercomputer that is guaranteed to bring you whatever you most desire in life. By instructing him on everything from what to wear to how to talk and walk, the squip transforms Jeremy from supergeek to superchic. Soon he is friends with his former tormentors and has the attention of the hottest girls in school. But Jeremy eventually finds out that there is also a dark side to having a computer inside your brain -- and it can lead to disastrous consequences.

 

Rome and a Villa :: Eleanor Clark
ISBN-13: 9780060974893 - ISBN-10: 0060974893

 

IN 1947 A YOUNG AMERICAN woman named Eleanor Clark went to Rome on a Guggenheim fellowship to write a novel. But Rome had its way with her, the novel was abandoned, and what followed was not a novel but a series of sketches of Roman life written mostly between 1948 and 1951. This new edition of the essential classic Rome and a Villa includes an evocative introduction by the preeminent translator William Weaver, who was close friends with the author and often wandered the city with her during the years she was working on the book.
Once in Rome, the foreign writer or artist, over the course of weeks, months, or years, begins to lose ambition, to lose a sense of urgency, to lose even a sense of self. What once seemed all-consuming is swallowed up by Rome itself; by the pace of life, by the fatalism of the Roman people, to whom everything and nothing matters, by the sheer historic weight and scale of the place. Rome is life itself - messy, random, anarchic, comical one moment, tragic the next, and above all, seductive.
Clark pays special attention to Roman art and architecture. In the book's midsection she looks at Hadrian's Villa - an enormous, unfinished palace - as a meta-phor for the city itself: decaying, imperial, shabby, but capable of inducing an overwhelming dreaminess in its visitors. The book's final chapter, written for an updated edition in 1974, is a lovely portrait of the so-called Protestant cemetery where both Keats and Shelley are buried, along with other foreign notables

he's wrong.

Van Weyden's trapped abroad the Ghost--a seal-hunting schooner crewed by the most desperate, brutal outcasts of the Pacific. Ghost's evil captain, Wolf Larsen--The Sea-Wolf--is murderous tyrant who uses his superhuman strength to torture and destroy, his brilliant mind to invent sick games, and his relentless will to control his mutinous crew.

Each new day bring Van Weyden pain he'd never imagined. Escape is impossible. On deck flooded with the blood of the seal slaughter, he must battle a savage genius not just for his life--but for the last tattered shreds of his own soul.

Mindbend by Robin Cook

Arolen is a giant pharma company, expanding at rapid pace and bringing more and more doctors into its clutches. Once doctors go on CME onboard a cruise organised by Arolen, they come back totally changed, in personality and opinions. Strangely many of them opt for job in Julian Clinic, even at the cost of leaving their lucrative private practices. Incidentally number of therapeutic abortions at the Julian Clinic are also rising. Hero of the novel, Dr Adam Schoneberg, has to leave his medical education midway for want of money as his wife becomes pregnant and later on trapped in the clutches of unethical medical practice. Adam finally succeeds in unravelling the mystery behind Arolem pharmaceuticals, Julian Clinic, CME on cruise, Arolen's research lab at Puerto Rico and rapid and unexplained surge in sells of Arolen drugs.

Boy am I going to have a lot to post on this thread next month.  I went a little crazy at the FoL sale :)  But for now, I'll just give this a bump!
