'Louis Sachar is magic to the toughest circle of critics: librarians, children’s booksellers, teachers – and, most of all, kids.' – USA Today 'Sachar’s touch is as deft as ever and the book is a page-turner.' – Detroit Free-Press 'Mr. Sachar's gentle but surefire approach nails down challenging issues such as racism, teen romance and drugs.' – Dallas Morning News 'Sachar has a talent for creating realistic relationships between unlikely friends. Although that's a staple device of children's literature, it often works by drawing on clichés. Sachar's characters, though, are never stereotypes, but always vividly alive.' – Los Angeles Times 'His prose is clear and relaxed, and funny in a low-key, observant way.' – New York Times 'Part of what makes Small Steps so believable and appealing is that its characters do have insecurities, and they aren’t ashamed to let them show.' – BookPage 'Sachar is a master storyteller who creates memorable characters.' – School Library Journal 'Cleverly wrought…heartwarming, witty and suspenseful.' – Time Out New York Kids Praise for Louis Sachar’s Holes: 'A dazzling blend of social commentary, tall tale and magic realism.' – Publishers Weekly (starred review) 'A brilliant achievement.' –School Library Journal 'A smart jigsaw puzzle of a novel.' – The New York Times 'Imaginative plotting and memorable characters make this novel a winner.' – Book Magazine

Mommy Wars: Stay-At-Home and Career Moms Face O...

zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

With motherhood comes one of the toughest decisions of a woman's life: Stay at home or pursue a career? The dilemma not only divides mothers into hostile, defensive camps but pits individual mothers against themselves. Leslie Morgan Steiner has been there. As an executive at The Washington Post, a writer, and mother of three, she has lived and breathed every side of the 'mommy wars.' Rather than just watch the battles rage, Steiner decided to do something about it. She commissioned twenty-six outspoken mothers to write about their lives, their families, and the choices that have worked for them. The result is a frank, surprising, and utterly refreshing look at American motherhood. Ranging in age from twenty-five to seventy-two and scattered across the country from New Hampshire to California, these mothers reflect the full spectrum of lifestyle choices. Women who have been home with the kids from day one, moms who shuttle from full-time office jobs to part-time at-home work, hard-driving executives who put in seventy-hour-plus weeks: they all get a turn. The one thing these women have in common, aside from having kids, is that they're all terrific writers. Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley vividly recounts how her generation stormed the American workplace-only to take refuge at home when the workplace drove them out. Lizzie McGuire creator Terri Minsky describes what it felt like to hear her kids scream 'I hope you never come back!' when she flew to L.A. to launch the show that made her career. Susan Cheever, novelist, biographer, and Newsday columnist, reports on the furious battles between the stroller pushers and the briefcase bearers on the streets of Manhattan. Lois R. Shea traded the journalistic fast track for a house in the country where she could raise her daughter in peace. Ann Misiaszek Sarnoff, chief operating officer of the Women's National Basketball Association, argues fiercely that you can combine ambition and motherhood-and have a blast in the process. Candid, engaging, by turns unflinchingly honest and painfully funny, the essays collected here offer an astonishingly intimate portrait of the state of motherhood today. Mommy Wars is a book by and for and about the real experts on motherhood and hard work: the women at home, in the office, on the job every day of their lives. Including these essays: 'Neither Here nor There' by Sandy Hingston 'The Mother Load' by Terri Minsky 'Sharks and Jets' by Page Evans 'Baby Battle' by Susan Cheever 'Guilty' by Dawn Drzal 'The Donna Reed Syndrome' by Lonnae O'Neal Parker 'Mother Superior' by Catherine Clifford 'Good Enough' by Beth Brophy 'Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn' by Lois R.

God Save Texas
21,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Praise for God Save Texas 'Superb . . . [Wright's] most personal work yet, an elegant mixture of autobiography and long-form journalism, remarkably free of elitist bias on the one hand, and pithy guidebook pronouncements on the other.' —David Oshinsky, The New York Times Book Review (cover) “A love letter to a place . . . Wright writes about Texas with the fervor, knowledge, and ambivalence that comes from deep-seated familiarity.” —Willard Spiegelman, The Wall Street Journal “After tackling 9/11 and Scientology, journalist Lawrence Wright wrangles his toughest subject yet: home, the Lone Star State. With a balance of deep reporting and memoir, the New Yorker staff writer offers a personal history of Texas, a place both singular and the bellwether of American politics and morality. It’s a different approach, and one that Wright nails.” —GQ “Rings true on every page.” —Michael Barnes, austin360 'Essential reading not just for Texans, but for anyone who wants to understand how one state changed the trajectory of the country . . . Wright is one of the most talented journalists Texas has ever produced, and God Save Texas is him at his best. It's a thoughtful, beautifully written book.' —Michael Schaub, NPR “Compelling . . . timely . . . There is a sleeping giant in Texas, and Wright captures the frustration and the hope that reverberate across the state each time it stirs.” —Cecile Richards, The Washington Post “Terrific . . . all-encompassing . . . [fueled] with literary tension . . . Wright’s words could speak for both Texas and America.” —Chris Vognar, The Dallas Morning News “Gripping . . .  Whether you love Texas or hate Texas, you will likely find God Save Texas a very funny and a very informative book about a place unlike any other on the face of the earth.” —Jonah Raskin, New York Journal of Books “The most entertaining and edifying nonfiction book I’ve read so far this year . . . There’s a jaw-dropping portrait on the shocking shenanigans of the Texas legislature; hymns to the natural beauty in the state’s far-flung nooks and crannies, and a spot-on analysis of Texas’s boom and bust economy. . . .[Wright] is a rare beast: an elegant writer and a fearless reporter, with a sense of humor as dry as the plains of west Texas.” —Mary Ann Gwinn, The Seattle Times “Thoroughly explore[s] the political past, present and future of the Lone Star State.” —Ryan Bort, Rolling Stone 'There is a noticeable and refreshing lack of defensiveness in Wright's journey through Texas . . . Quirky anecdotes, philosophical musings on culture, and hyperlocal travel writing abound.' —Elizabeth Catte, Boston Review “A godsend . . . Thorough and concise . . . A brilliant analysis.” —Marion Winik, Newsday “Vivid . . . Omnivorous . . . Affectionate and genial . . . Captures the full range of Texas in all its shame and glory . . . An illuminating primer for outsiders who may not live there but have a surfeit of opinions about those who do . . . [It’s] a testament to Wright’s formidable storytelling skills that a reader will encounter plenty of information without ever feeling lost.” —Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times “If you listen to one audiobook this year, make it this one . . . Wright’s gentle Texas accent infuses his tale of the Lone Star State with humor and depth.” —Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed 'Wright focueses his razor-sharp lens inward and on his home state, [interjecting] personal anecdotes to enliven the facts and figures.' —Michelle Newby, Lone Star Literary Life “A campfire stew of memoir, reportage and historical digression. Wright is a typically Texas storyteller, an anecdotalist who wanders around and stops occasionally to point out the view, but somehow you end up getting where you’re going anyway
