    "Eliza" was the first volume of the Eliza Stories by Barry Pain (1864-1928). It was published in 1900 and was the first of these stories that appeared in cheap editions and were sold on Railway bookstalls. The stories were hugely popular and made Pain's name. Although the book is titled "Eliza" it is her husband who is it's comic hero.The husband, whose name we never learn, is an overbearing, pretentious prig who believes he is right about everything  but is constantly undermined and proved wrong by his long-suffering wife. He is without doubt one of the great comic creations in the tradition of Mr Pooter in "The  Diary of a Nobody."

    A collection of vignettes and stories, including the Nick Adams tale “Indian Camp,” from one of American literature’s greatest twentieth-century writers.   This volume of short fiction offers brief glimpses into Ernest Hemingway’s life and mind, portraying the evolution of an artist—a writer of nonfiction testing the form’s limits, stretching his imagination, and experimenting with the “fibrous and athletic” language that would propel his novels and make its mark on literary history (The New York Times).  In Our Time features famous Nick Adams stories such as “Indian Camp,” in which Nick gets a hard lesson in the reality of birth and death, “The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife,” “The Three-Day Blow,” “The Battler,” and “Big Two-Hearted River,” Parts I and II. There are scenes of war, bullfights, and brutality, but also moments of humor, albeit dark, and beauty. In Our Time captures a moment in a master’s career, in which we are given a hint of what is to come . . .

    Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891) is a novel by Thomas Hardy. Tess Durbeyfield is the oldest child of John and Joan, uneducated peasants living in an impoverished rural village in Wessex, during the Long Depression of the 1870s. One day, her father is given the hint that they may have noble blood and that they are successors of a noble Norman family D'Urberville. Tess' fortune is changed after one accident and she decides to visit Mrs. D'Urberville, a rich widow who lives in the nearby town, and "claim kin". Though now considered a major nineteenth-century English novel and Hardy's masterpiece, Tess of the d'Urbervilles originally received mixed reviews because it challenged the sexual morals of late Victorian England.
