This past weekend our acquisitions editor Shannon McCarthy traveled to Pittsburgh to meet with scholars and display UPF books at the annual Modernist Studies Association conference. Take a look at some photos from the book room!
We displayed our newest books in Modernist Studies, and several UPF authors stopped by our tables to say hello:

Below is a roundup of our newest Modernist Studies titles, which we took to the conference last week.
The year in review: Modernist Studies
by H.D., Edited by Annette Debo
“These two hard-to-come-by texts reveal that the H.D. we know—the poet of exquisite, erudite, allusive imagist or modernist poems—chose to live through the experience of WWII London and to share with her fellow Londoners the hardships and anxieties of a city under attack.”—Demetres Tryphonopoulos, editor of Majic Ring
by H.D., Edited by Lara Vetter
“Superb. Vetter’s incisive introduction offers one of the first approaches to theorizing women’s late modernist literary production as advancing specifically hybrid works located at the juncture of personal, national, and nationalist concerns.”—Cynthia Hogue, coeditor of The Sword Went Out to Sea
by Barbara Lounsberry
“Lounsberry’s deeply researched and gracefully written book shows not only Woolf’s development into a great diarist but also her evolvement into the fiction and nonfiction writer revered today.”—Gay Talese, author of A Writer’s Life
by James Dempsey
“A sympathetic and pleasing study of this often overlooked patron and critic . . . the first detailed account of Thayer’s life and of his important but conflicted support of modern writers and artists at the Dial . . . enthralling and convincing.”—Wall Street Journal
by Tony Jason Stafford
“Stafford focuses a sensitive eye on nine of Shaw’s dramas . . . to show how the dramatist strategically deployed gardens and libraries to convey meaning in a visual and compelling manner.”—CHOICE
Released this year in paperback:
Edited by Daniel Ferrer, Sam Slote, and André Topia
“Provides a compelling new way to examine and understand Joyce’s literary innovation, a revolutionary spirit that not only reignites the past in the early twentieth century, but whose subsequent rebirths productively engage our present and thus highlight Joyce’s continued significance.”—English Literature in Transition, 1880-1920
by H.D. (writing as Delia Alton), edited by Demetres P. Tryphonopoulos
“Only lightly fictionalized . . . this side of H.D. is not well known . . . [and] this book makes one think of her as a kind of victim of war.”—Times Literary Supplement
