First published in French in 1977, Waterweed in the Wash-houses is Jeanne Hyvrard's third novel. A stream-of-consciousness text it is structured according to the major Arcana of the Tarot and to the stages of alchemy. Apparently the story of a mad female narrator, the book has multi-level significances concerning women's relation to language, history, politics, power and all aspects of femaleness.

This book is based on the lives of one family, dating from the early 1920s to the twenty-first century. The novel expands the lives of the family and their individual journeys but concentrates mainly on one character and her experiences. Elodea faces challenges, tragedies, and joys in her life as she struggles with all that besets her over her ninety-one years. There are moments of sadness, struggle, and joy. Elodeas life encounters many twists and desperate times, but the temerity and willpower she learned in her early years always fortify her throughout her life.

"This critical introduction for the first time brings the work of the French theorist Jeanne Hyvrard to the English-speaking world. Hyvrard, by training a political economist, combines 'chaos theory', personal history, and political analysis to address the condition and future of the post-colonial world. Original, incisive and committed to new ways of thinking, Hyvrard's work confronts the profound questions of our time: language; the body; women's resistance to physical and psychological oppression; colonialism; ecology and technology; madness and illness; birth and death; and mother-daughter relations." "Much of Hyvrard's writing (like that of other French feminist writers) is semi fictional. Like Helene Cixous, Hyvrard has been described as a proponent of 'l'ecriture feminine', but, as Jennifer Waelti-Walters shows by setting Hyvrard's work in a range of contexts, Hyvrard makes her own distinctive contribution to western intellectual thought by working out from the female body to global politics, economics and environmental issues."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Les articles inédits réunis dans le présent volume ont au moins deux objectifs majeurs qui se complètent et se croisent à la fois. Le premier, de par la diversité des thèmes abordés, permet de donner des pistes supplémentaires afin d'éclairer l'oeuvre hyvrardienne. Le second offre, autant que faire se peut, une ébauche sinon un cheminement de la pensée hyvrardienne puisque les contributions de ce recueil portent tant sur des livres anciens que récents de Jeanne Hyvrard. L'ouvrage est complété par une bibliographie des écrits et critiques de et sur l'oeuvre de Jeanne Hyvrard.

Volume II contains roughly the first half of the Thorndyke Short Stories. In all, there are over forty Thorndyke short stories, spread over six books. This volume contains the fifteen short stories from the first three, John Thorndyke's Cases, The Singing Bone, and The Great Portrait Mystery. Some of the stories in this book are especially famous, as they were the first use of the "inverted" mystery, in which the criminal (and how he did it) are identified from the first, and the second half of the narrative shows how Thorndyke solves it, in spite of the criminal's every effort. (The "inverted" crime story was later used to great success by Columbo, as well as other detectives.) In addition to these fifteen stories, this book also contains a couple of Apocrypal Thorndyke tales: - The original novella of "31, New Inn" from 1905, which became The Mystery of 31 New Inn, the third Thorndyke novel from 1912. This is the doctor's true first appearance - written and published several years before the appearance of The Red Thumb Mark (1907), which is commonly believed to be Thorndyke's first published adventure; and - "The Dead Hand" (1912), which later became the revised and expanded Thorndyke novel The Shadow of the Wolf (1925). Join us as these handsome new editions bring back one of the truly great detectives who has been neglected for far too long. "Freeman was eminently successful in creating, in Thorndyke, a noble, highly convincing and thoroughly consistent character who was precisely fitted to his role." - Norman Donaldson, Thorndyke Scholar, In Search of Dr. Thorndyke (1971) You know Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street. Now meet Dr. John Thorndyke of 5A Kings Bench Walk, London. When Sherlock Holmes began his practice as a "Consulting Detective", his ideas of scientific criminal investigations caused the London police to look upon him as a mere "theorist". And yet, through his work, the science behind catching criminals became so important that it's hard to now imagine the world without them. Many famous Great Detectives followed in Holmes's footsteps - Nero Wolfe and Ellery Queen, Hercule Poirot and Solar Pons - but before they began their careers, and while Holmes was still in practice in Baker Street, another London consultant - Dr. John Thorndyke - opened his doors, using the scientific methods developed and perfected by Holmes and taking them to a whole new level of brilliance. Between 1905, with his first appearance in a nearly forgotten novella (see below), to 1942, and through the course of twenty-one novels and over forty short stories, Dr. Thorndyke, often with the assistance of his friend Dr. Christopher Jervis, unraveled some incredibly complex puzzles. Besides providing very satisfying mysteries - some of which turned the literary form inside out - these adventures present vivid pictures of England in the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras, ranging from the doctor's own vividly drawn chambers at 5A Kings Bench Walk in the Temple to the surrounding London streets, and beyond into the villages and towns of the countryside. Many of the Thorndyke volumes have been difficult to obtain for decades. MX Publishing is proud to announce the return of Dr. Thorndyke in a collection of omnibus editions, bringing these masterful adventures of one of the world's greatest detectives together in an easily available format for modern readers. "Thorndyke will cheerfully show you all the facts. You will be none the wiser...." - Dorothy L. Sayers, Chronicler of Lord Peter Wimsey
