♥ Book Title : Ice
☯ Full Synopsis : "'Few novelists match the intensity of her vision' J. G. Ballard No one knows why the ice has come, and no one can stop it. Every day it creeps further across the earth, covering the land in snow and freezing everything in its path. Through this bleached, devastated world, one man pursues the sylph-like, silver-haired girl he loves, as she keeps running - away from her husband; away from the sinister 'warden' who seeks to control her; away from him. 'A raw, brutal tale set in a frozen post-nuclear dystopia ... addictive and extremely entertaining' Guardian 'There is nothing else quite like Ice' Doris Lessing 'She is De Quincey's heir and Kafka's sister' Brian Aldiss"Article| Anna Kavan| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "An early work from Anna Kavan strongly evoking life in England and its colonies from the early years of the century through the period following the First World War.

♥ Book Title : Picking Up the Traces
☯ Full Synopsis : "The story of the generation of New Zealand writers who came of age in the 1930s and who deliberately and decisively changed the course of literature is told in this book, shedding important new light on the key participants, including Allen Curnow, Denis Glover, and Robin Hyde. The movement is traced through small circulation magazines and small press publications from 1932 to 1941. The repudiations and loyalties by which the movement defined itself are explored, including its opposition to the literary establishment and to late Georgian verse, its naming of its precursors and allies from the 1920s, and its choice of overseas models such as the British Moderns and the new American short-story writers for the creation of a new literature. Also covered is the anti-myth the Phoenix and Caxton writers created to oppose the cultural myths supported by the literary establishment and the writers' responses to the worldwide social upheavals of the period--the Depression, the international crises of 1935 to 1939, and World War II."Article| Lawrence Jones| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Parson
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Parson was not published in Anna Kavan’s lifetime, but found after her death in manuscript form. Thought to have been written between the mid 50s and early 60s, it presages, through its undertones and imagery, some of Kavan’s last and most enduring fiction (such as Ice). It was published finally, to wide acclaim, by Peter Owen in 1995. The Parson of the title is not a cleric, but an upright young army officer so nick-named for his apparent prudishness. On leave in his native homeland, he meets a rich and beguiling beauty, the woman of his dreams. The days that the Parson spends with Rejane, riding in and exploring the wild moorland have their own enchantment. But Rejane grows restless in this desolate land; doubtless in love with the Parson, she discourages any intimacy. Until that is, she persuades him to take her to a sinister castle situated on a treacherous headland. This is less a tale of unrequited love than exploration of divided selves, momentarily locked in an unequal embrace. Passion is revealed as a play of the senses as well as a destructive force. There have been valid comparisons to Poe, Kafka, and Thomas Hardy, but the presence of her trademark themes, cleverly juxtaposed and set in her risk-taking prose, mark The Parson as 100% Kavan."Article| Anna Kavan| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Om Is av Anna Kavan
☯ Full Synopsis : "Nyskrivet förord av författaren och översättaren Helena Fagertun till Anna Kavans Is. Om Is av Anna Kavan: Is utspelar sig i den nukleära vintern efter ett kärnvapenkrig, då en ny istid råder på jorden. Vi följer bokens berättare på jakt efter ett skört väsen, en flicka med albinohår. Sökandet blir alltmer hallucinatoriskt, vi vet inte var vi är – eller ens vad vi känner. Färden går genom ett land ockuperat av en främmande militär makt. Men det största hotet är naturen själv, vars väggar av is breder ut sig över världen. Språket i Anna Kavans Is är som en dröm, återgiven under pressen av en verklig katastrof. En modern brittisk klassiker av en författare vars rykte i världslitteraturen bara vuxit med åren."Article| Helena Fagertun| Statement ..."
