|Barnes, Djuna. Nightwood. Introduction by T.S. Eliot. New York, New Directions, 1961. 10.5 x 18cm. (17), 170 pages. Original softcover. Some signs of external wear, including minor paper loss to spine, otherwise good condition. Some text annotations. From the library of swiss – american – irish poet Chuck Kruger. [A New Directions Paperbook, No. 98].
Nightwood tells the stories of the love-lives of a group of Americans and Europeans in Paris in the 1920s – an exotic, night-time underworld, eccentric, seedy and beautiful. One of the earliest novels to explicitly portray homosexuality, the influence of Djuna Barnes’s novel has been, and continues to be, exceptional. Nightwood is not only a classic of modernist literature, but was also acknowledged by T. S. Eliot as one of the great novels of the twentieth century. [Faber & Faber]

|Millet, Kate. Sita. New York, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1977. 14.5 cm x 21 cm. 322 pages. Original hardcover with original dustjacket. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Inscribed / Signed by Kate Millet.
“‘A wrenching and intimate autobiography, “Sita” is an unsparing, moment-by-moment record of the fading of love, with all of its agony and false-dawn respites. For the first time, the original text of “Sita” is accompanied by the first of Millett’s moving prose elegies, written after Sita committed suicide. This lament lends new resonance to the original text and gives the reader a fuller understanding of the mercurial devotion that bound the two women to each other. This reissue also features a new preface by the author.″Sita” follows the disintegration of Millett’s love affair with a woman who is ten years her senior, a veteran of several marriages, and the mother of grown children. Fiery, seductive, elegant, and exotic, “Sita” captivates Millett in every sense, offering unimagined pleasure and much-needed emotional security. One day, however, all this changes. Arriving from New York to spend half the year in Berkeley, as they had arranged, Millett is appalled to find the house – their house – overrun with Sita’s troubled children and their hangers-on.Amid this unexpected chaos, she struggles with searing jealousy and self-doubt to salvage her relationship with Sita, who is often preoccupied, impatient, and cold, and who frequently disappears for assignations with male lovers. With remarkable candor, Millett charts her months with Sita and the inexorable shift from passionate abandon to abandonment. As each fragile thread of their love dissolves, Millett dwells on what drew them together, recounting all the hopes, tricks, and evasions that made up their erotic dance. Obsessive and impassioned, “Sita” speaks with a sharp immediacy to everyone who has ever experienced the exhilaration and despair of love’.” (Amazon)

|Nin, Anaïs. The Diary of Anaïs Nin. Volume Two: 1934-1939 and Volume Three: 1939-1944. Edited and with a Preface by Gunther Stuhlmann. Volume 2 & 3 of 7 in series. New York, The Swallow Press / Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc., 1967 / 1969. 13.5 x 20cm. Vol. 2: (9), 357 pages / Vol. 3: (14), 327 pages. Original softcover. Vol. 2: Spine worn with a slight lean, some text annotations, otherwise very good condition. Vol. 3: Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. From the library of swiss – american – irish poet Chuck Kruger. [Harvest Books, Nos. HB174 & HB199].
The Diary of Anaïs Nin is the published version of Anaïs Nin’s own private manuscript diary, which she began at age 11 in 1914 during a trip from Europe to New York with her mother and two brothers. Over the years, the diary would become Anaïs Nin’s best friend and confidante. Despite the attempts of her mother, therapists Rene Allendy and Otto Rank, and writer Henry Miller, to break Anaïs Nin of her dependence on the diary, she would continue to keep a diary up until her death in 1977. As early as the 1930s Anaïs Nin had sought to have the diary published. Due to its size (in 1966, the diary contained more than 15,000 typewritten pages in some 150 volumes) and literary style, she would not find a publisher until 1966, when the first volume of her diary would be published, covering the years 1931–1934 in her life. The published version of her diary would be very popular among young women, making Anaïs Nin a feminist icon in the 1960s. Six more volumes of her diary would follow.

|Norman, Diana. Terrible Beauty – A Life of Constance Markievicz. London / Sydney / Auckland / Toronto, Hodder & Stoughton, 1987. 16.5 cm x 24 cm. 320 pages. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Clean inside with solid binding.
“Constance, Countess Markiewicz (February 4, 1868 – July 15, 1927) was an Irish Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil politician, revolutionary nationalist and suffragette. During the Easter Rising of 1917, she was an officer in the Irish Citizens Army. In 1918, she was the first woman elected to the British House of Commons, though she did not take her seat and along with the other Sinn Féin MPs formed the first Dáil Éireann. The first woman to take her seat would be Nancy Astor, Viscountess Astor in 1919. Markiewicz, however, was the first woman in Europe to hold a cabinet position as Minister of Labour of the Irish Republic, 1919–1922, although she “was in jail during most of this time.” Ireland did not appoint another women to a cabinet post until 1979.She was imprisoned by the British authorities in 1911, in 1916, in 1918, and twice during Ireland independence struggle. She was not elected in 1922, but was returned as MP at the 1923 and 1927 elections. When she retired from the Irish Republican Army in 1923, she did so as a Colonel. On the one hand, she proved that a woman could fight alongside men with distinction. On the other hand, her feminine compassion earned her a reputation as the friend of the workers, of the poor, and the forgotten. Her life shows that as women take their rightful place as leaders alongside men, society is enriched and strengthened”. (New World Encyclopedia).

|Olsen, Tillie. Tell Me A Riddle. New York, Laurel Edition / Dell Publishing, 1976. 11 x 18cm. 125 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. From the library of swiss – american – irish poet Chuck Kruger. [A Seymour Lawrence Book].
A century after her birth, Tillie Olsen’s writing is as relevant as when it first appeared; indeed, the clarity and passion of her vision and style have, if anything, become even more striking over time. This volume includes the four beautifully crafted, highly celebrated stories originally published as Tell Me a Riddle: “I Stand Here Ironing,” “Hey Sailor, What Ship?,” “O Yes,” and “Tell Me a Riddle.” The title story won the O. Henry Award. In these stories, as in all of her work, Olsen set a new standard for the treatment of women and the poor and for the depiction of their lives and circumstances. In her hands, the hard truths about motherhood and marriage, domestic life, labor, and political conviction found expression in language of such poetic intensity and depth that their influence continues to be felt today.
