            A delightful collection of Jane Austen's wittiest insights, taken from her celebrated novels and letters. Lauded for her eloquence, observation and wry humour, Jane Austen was a novelist who was highly regarded and greatly celebrated in her own time. However, her appeal is as gre...at as ever, and her insights remain as fresh and relevant today as when they were first published. This delightful volume offers thematic extracts from her fiction and correspondence, featuring quotes from such novels as Emma, Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Persuasion, alongside extracts from Austen's letters to her sister and confidante, Cassandra. Containing a host of quotations displaying Austen's sharp - indeed, often wicked - wit, this wonderful treasury will be enjoyed by fans of the author as well as readers who are new to her writing.

            After George refuses at the last minute to go with her on their planned tour of Europe, Ellie decides to go by herself, since it is too late to get anyone to travel with her. She takes a two week cruise of the Mediterranean to visit Italy, Greece and Turkey and has a passionate o...nboard affair. Due to an outbreak of cholera at a nearby port, she worries about getting quarantined onboard. Then there is the problem of the husband who wants to meet me in Barcelona. That was the last I heard from him. If there's no letter at the dock, I'll have to call him and I have very mixed feelings about him coming to Europe. It has been good to know I can travel the whole summer and each new place has meant conquering the fear of traveling alone. So much for tomorrow, for tonight I am going to sleep with Armando. Eleanor Sinclair has lived these adventures, and The Barnard Journals Trilogy Part I is the first of many journals she kept. The Italian Cruise is the first book in the series to be released. Part II continues with The Paris Journals and Part III is Barnard College. She has lectured in psychology, worked as a photographer and as an art dealer. She is a graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University, New York, N.Y.

            How do life experiences feed into the books that an author writes? In An Autobiographical Letter, Norman Weeks recounts the experiential origins of his writings. Looking back over his first fifty years, he presents a comprehensive treatment of his life, especially those aspects t...hat proved source material for what he would eventually write: His upbringing, education, maturation, personal interactions with friends and lovers, adventures and misadventures, travels and travails. A rich life, a rich lode for literary mining. The principal theme of An Autobiographical Letter, a literary biography, is the pursuit of personal vocation. We follow the thought processes of an author-at-work, as he reports on his various literary projects, -their roots, the subjects and their treatment, the difficulties of composition, the relation of form to content, revisions and new versions in the pursuit of perfection, and, at last, attempts to market the finished books. In all, a self-revelation and an exegesis of the author's works

            A poignant meditation on the bonds between mothers and daughters-and the inescapable effects of time-from the author of A Wrinkle in Time. In the second memoir of her Crosswicks Journals, Madeleine L'Engle chronicles a season of extremes. Four generations of family have gathered ...at Crosswicks, her Connecticut farmhouse, to care for L'Engle's ninety-year-old mother. As summer days fade to sleepless nights, her mother's health rapidly declines and her once astute mind slips into senility. With poignant honesty, L'Engle describes the gifts and graces, as well as the painful emotional cost, of caring for the one who once cared for you. As she spends her days with a mother who barely resembles the competent and vigorous woman who bore and raised her, L'Engle delves into her memories, reflecting on the lives of the strong women in her family's history. Evoking both personal experiences and universal themes, The Summer of the Great-Grandmother takes an unflinching look at diminishment and death, all the while celebrating the wonder of life. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L'Engle including rare images from the author's estate.
