A businesswoman finds new life and love after she resigns from her job and relocates to upstate New York to help her cousin run a small bookstore.
It's as if time, Had forgotten itself, And in fun turned its hands too fast. And left me here, With only memories, Just visions of a distant past. Yet every night, As I sleep, A light begins to twinkle and gleam. And for a while, I'm back again, If only in my dreams. This inspirational book of poetry by John D. Ratliff explores the things that drive, inspire, and move us from our experiences to our dreams. It is an expression of our daily lives, page by page, day by day. John D. Ratliff was born in a small town in eastern Kentucky. He attended Alice Lloyd College, then joined the U.S. Army. He then married and had two children. Aside from writing, John also enjoys gardening and game fishing. He and his wife, Jennifer, gather berries yearly and make jelly and jam. John currently delivers mail with one of the local post offices while waiting for the next page to turn.
This is the Memoir of Manny Scott's life.
Since the nineteenth century, children's literature has been adapted for both the stage and the screen. As the twentieth century progressed, children's books provided the material for an increasing range of new media, from radio to computer games, from television to cinema blockbuster. Although such adaptations are now recognised as a significant part of the culture of childhood and popular culture in general, little has been written about the range of products and experiences that they generate. This book brings together writers whose work offers contrasting perspectives on the process of adaptation and the varying transformations - social, historical and ideological - that take place when a text moves from the page to another medium. Linking all these contributions is an interest in the changing definition of children's literature and its target audience within an increasingly media-rich society.
American Book Review is not just a book review—it is also the heart and soul of writerly writing and small press publishing. In 2006, the publication was relocated to Victoria, Texas, where cultural critic and philosopher Jeffrey R. Di Leo became editor and publisher. Turning the Page collects Di Leo’s contributions to American Book Review from his more recent “Page 2” entries on “social reading” and book bannings in Arizona to his early engagements with the work of Raymond Federman and Harold Jaffe. The common themes are book and publishing culture, and how they intersect with current problems in the humanities, including the rise of neoliberalism. “There is no dimension of contemporary book culture that Jeffrey Di Leo doesn’t examine beautifully in Turning the Page. These essays are essential reading for everyone who cares about the state of literature today.”—Charles Johnson, author, Middle Passage “For the past decade, Jeffrey Di Leo, the editor of American Book Review, has been a witty, genial, super-well-informed, and incisive guide to what’s been happening on the literary scene as well as the public world beyond it.”—Marjorie Perloff, Sadie Dernham Patek Professor of Humanities Emerita, Stanford University “Literary culture is going through convulsions not seen since the emergence of the printing press, which is exactly why Jeffrey Di Leo’s Turning the Page is such necessary reading.”—Steve Tomasula, author, TOC: A New-Media Novel
