Dorothy Shea Chapman was the last person in the world to take herself seriously. When she first came to our Autobiography Workshop, held in the Community/Senior Citizen Center in Dana Point, CA, she entered the room with a bouncing flair and a spirited walk, while folding up her red-tipped white cane. One knew immediately that this woman was full of wit, intelligent without the egotism that often goes with it, possessing a self-deprecating manner that worked as a magnet. She drew others to her without any visible effort. Dorothy's essays and poetry hit their target every time. Nothing-no subject-was off-limits for her pen. She exhibits a sensitivity not often seen when she tackles life's most laborious challenges-even grief. She tackled everything from kitchen pots to kibitzing pols, from gravy to graft, so to speak. This book promises you one laughing-out-loud page after another! Let this mother, grandmother and great-grandmother regale you, teach you, and bless you.

New in Paper! Author Bill Roorbach explains how to turn the engaging, untold stories of one's life into vivid personal essays and riveting memoirs. His friendly instruction and stimulating exercises teach writers how to: open up memory, access emotion and discover compelling material; shape scenes from experience, as life events become plot lines; populate stories with the fascinating, silly and maddening characters that surround them - their family members and friends. Readers will find innovative techniques of value to writers at all stages of their craft. Much more than teaching the rudiments of autobiography, this book will help writers see their own lives more clearly, while learning that real stories are often the best ones.

"Richard Gary Brautigan's idiosyncratic style and humor caused him to be identified with the counterculture movement of the 1960s. The authors of many of these essays knew Brautigan personally and professionally; others through a connection with his writings. The essays combine remembrance of the man and appraisal of his works. Includes previously unpublished photographs and artworks"--Provided by publisher.

This generous omnium-gatherum brings together all the writings William James published that have not appeared in previous volumes of this definitive edition of his works. Miscellaneous and diverse though the pieces are, they are unified by James's style and personality, which shine through even the slightest of them. The volume includes 25 essays, 44 letters to the editor commenting on sundry topics, and 113 reviews of a wide range of works in English, French, German, and Italian. Twenty-three of the items are not recorded in any bibliography of James's writings. Two of the new discoveries are of particular interest: dating from 1865, when he was still a medical student, they are James's earliest known publications and give his first published views on Darwinian biology, which was to affect profoundly his own work in philosophy and psychology. Among his reviews are one of "Ueber den psychischen Mechanismus hysterischer Phäomene," by Josef Breuer and Sigmund Freud, published a year after the first appearance of that historically famous essay, and showing the breadth of James's interests, reviews of George Santayana's Sense of Beauty (1897) and Bernard Berenson's Florentine Painters of the Renaissance (1896).

Thomas F. Torrance's theology included a thoroughgoing, albeit implicit, ethic of reconciliation. It focused on the personalizing and humanizing mediation of Christ in all realms of life--including not only a supposed private dimension of human life but also the social, historical, and political structures of human society and even of the cosmos itself. This book builds upon that vision of a Christian ethic radically rooted in God's grace, which encompasses, sustains, and transforms the entire human and created order. A trinitarian-incarnational social ethic does not begin with our human causes, projects, and agendas, however noble they might be, but with witness to the reconciling person and work of Jesus Christ for us.

A classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene, The Things They Carried is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. The Things They Carried depicts the men of Alpha Company: Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and the character Tim O’Brien, who has survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three. Taught everywhere—from high school classrooms to graduate seminars in creative writing—it has become required reading for any American and continues to challenge readers in their perceptions of fact and fiction, war and peace, courage and fear and longing. The Things They Carried won France's prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
