1 Atwood, Margaret Life Before Man

Imprisoned by walls of their own construction, here are three people, each in midlife, in midcrisis, forced to make choices--after the rules have changed. Elizabeth, with her controlled sensuality, her suppressed rage, is married to the wrong man. She has just lost her latest lover to suicide. Nate, her gentle, indecisive husband, is planning to leave her for Lesje, a perennial innocent who prefers dinosaurs to men. Hanging over them all is the ghost of Elizabeth's dead lover...and the dizzying threat of three lives careening inevitably toward the same climax.

14 Lawrence, D. H. Women in Love
Markham, Ontario Penguin Books Canada, Limited 1975 0140014853 / 9780140014853 Soft cover Very Good No Jacket Book 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall 
Women in Love is widely regarded as D. H. Lawrence's greatest novel. The novel continues where: The Rainbow left off with the third generation of Brangwens: Ursula Brangwen, now a teacher at Beldover, a mining town in the Midlands, and her sister Gudrun, who has returned from art school in London. The focus of the novel is primarily on their relationships, Ursula's with Rupert Birkin, a school inspector, though he gives that up, and Gudrun's with Gerald Crich, an industrialist, and later with a sculptor, Loerke. David Herbert (D. H.) Lawrence is one of the most versatile and influential figures in the 20th-century literary canon. Best known for his novels, Lawrence was also an accomplished poet, short story writer, essayist, critic, and travel writer. The controversial themes for which he is remembered, namely the celebration of sensuality in an over-intellectualized world and his relationship with censors sometimes overshadow the work of a master craftsman and profound thinker.

17 Murdoch, Iris The Message to the Planet
New York, NY. Viking 1989 0670829994 / 9780670829996 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Dust Jacket Included Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall 
Mage or madman? Marcus Vallar was a brilliant mathematician who abandoned science, a gifted painter who walked away from art. Now confined to a mental home, he's sought out by bands of "Seekers" and "Stone People" who believe--on good evidence--that he's raised a man from the dead. But Marcus struggles in vain to frame a coherent message. It's as if, he says, "the gods were offering us, at the very last moment, a glimpse of . . . of . . . ." A disciple's explanation may come closer: "It's all together." Prolific British novelist Murdoch offers her most challenging work yet, an often droll metaphysical thriller for thoughtful readers.
