Hailed by Frank O'Connor as one of "the greatest living storytellers, " J.F. Powers, who died in 1999, stands with Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, and Raymond Carver among the authors who have given the short story an unmistakably American cast. In three slim collections of perfectly crafted stories, published over a period of some thirty years and brought together here in a single volume for the first time, Powers wrote about many things: baseball and jazz, race riots and lynchings, the Great Depression, and the flight to the suburbs. His greatest subject, however-and one that was uniquely his-was the life of priests in Chicago and the Midwest. Powers's thoroughly human priests, who include do-gooders, gladhanders, wheeler-dealers, petty tyrants, and even the odd saint, struggle to keep up with the Joneses in a country unabashedly devoted to consumption. These beautifully written, deeply sympathetic, and very funny stories are an unforgettable record of the precarious balancing act that is American life.

Farming and Birds
WOMAN OF CLAY is a timeless story about finding the courage to follow one's heart. It is for an adult readership and is approximately 60,000 words in length. Riona is a skilled potter who lives on the island of Slane. She fantasises about creating a clay figure of her own design, her own woman of clay. She longs to feel that she is valued and accepted by others on the island. She longs to feel safe, to have companionship and a sense of belonging. But Riona lives on an island where there are dark cloaks to wear, many rules and paths to follow, and endless shallow platters and hollow pots to throw from her wheel. The expectations and judgements of the other islanders govern Riona's life, just as the stones that border the many paths on Slane confine her direction. There is no place for a...
This attractively illustrated book reviews the effects of agricultural development on bird populations in Britain. Examining modern farmland as a bird habitat, it explains the changes, both in habitat structure and in available resources, that have occurred as a result of mechanisation and use of agrochemicals. Farmland bird communities are described, and their composition related to farm structure and land use. Based extensively on empirical data extracted from the British Trust for Ornithology's Common Bird Census and from nest histories recorded in the BTO'S Nest Record Scheme, the book presents an important analysis of the position of agricultural bird populations under modern farming systems. Particular examination has been made of the impact of changing methods, rotations and...
