Confessions of a Shopaholic

Book Review
If you've ever paid off one credit card with another, thrown out a bill before opening it, or convinced yourself that buying at a two-for-one sale is like making money, then this silly, appealing novel is for you. In the opening pages of Confessions of a Shopaholic, recent college graduate Rebecca Bloomwood is offered a hefty line of credit by a London bank. Within a few months, Sophie Kinsella's heroine has exceeded the limits of this generous offer, and begins furtively to scan her credit-card bills at work, certain that she couldn't have spent the reported sums.

In theory anyway, the world of finance shouldn't be a mystery to Rebecca, since she writes for a magazine called Successful Saving. Struggling with her spendthrift impulses, she tries to heed the advice of an expert and appreciate life's cheaper pleasures:...

From Publishers Weekly
It is surprising that the voluminous, gregarious Australian poet Kinsella is making his U.S. debut with this collection. His tireless production as editor of Salt Press (a prolific publishing house and international poetry journal based in the U.K.) and multiple volumes of strangely foreboding "post-pastoral" landscape poetry have made Kinsella a name within the Commonwealth, as he has improvised an Australian epic lyric by lyric, book by book, neither "unfolding" like Hart Crane nor "developing" like Wallace Stevens (a dichotomy Harold Bloom erects in his introduction) but moving forward unaggressively yet momentously, like a geological process. Kinsella crosses genres easily, from the accessible parable of "Drowning in Wheat" to the urbane satire of "The Bermuda Triangle," from the deconstructionist archeology...

Book Review
W. P. Kinsella plays with both myth and fantasy in his lyrical novel, which was adapted into the enormously popular movie, Field of Dreams. It begins with the magic of a godlike voice in a cornfield, and ends with the magic of a son playing catch with the ghost of his father. In Kinsella's hands, it's all about as simple, and complex, as the object of baseball itself: coming home. Like Ring Lardner and Bernard Malamud before him, Kinsella spins baseball as backdrop and metaphor, and, like his predecessors, uses the game to tell us a little something more about who we are and what we need. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The New Arcadia

Ann Born, Poetry Salzburg Review
Imbued with tremendous energy, passion and sincerity. The energy coursing through…is supernatural, and the variations on themes phenomenal.

Book Description
Based on the western Australian landscape and loosely modeled on Philip Sidney's classic romantic pastoral "Arcadia." One of Australia's best poets, drawn to the natural world, vividly depicts the western Australian wheat-belt landscape in this brilliant epic poem. Analogies are made between the pastoral idyll and the radical and antipastoral necessitated by today's rural world (salinity, pesticides, road kill, soil erosion, and dispossession of indigenous peoples).

Reading the Ground: The Poetry of Thomas Kinsella
Brian John
0813208386
September 1997
Paperback
·
 
From the Publisher
NEW IN PAPERBACK A major critical study of Kinsella's work.

Thomas Kinsella began writing in the 1950s when Irish poets were struggling to emerge from what he identified as the "double shadow of Yeats and English verse." Throughout his career Kinsella sought to establish his identity as an Irish poet writing in English and to determine his place within the dual Irish tradition, Gaelic and English.

In this comprehensive study of Kinsella's poetry, Brian John explores the poet's development within both the Irish and the English contexts and defines the nature of his poetic achievement. He also offers a new reading of Kinsella's evolving relationship to one of his literary forebears, W. B. Yeats. What becomes clear is the formidable accomplishment of a poet, now writing at the height of his powers,...
