The major paintings of iconic American artist Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) presented together in an accessible volume. Andrew Wyeth is an essential introduction to the enduring masterworks of this profoundly popular American artist. Published on the occasion of the centennial of the artist´s birth, this handsome book highlights works spanning the entirety of the artist´s seven-decade career painting the landscapes and people he knew in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where he lived, and in Maine, where he summered. Many of his most important landscapes and portraits were created in and around his Chadds Ford studio, now part of the Brandywine River Museum of Art, with which Andrew Wyeth was intimately connected since its founding in 1971. A short introduction provides an overview of his life, and descriptive captions contextualize some fifty of the artist´s finest and most beloved paintings, including Pennsylvania Landscape (1942), Wind from the Sea (1947), Christina´s World (1948), Trodden Weed (1951), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), Braids (1977), and Pentecost (1989). Readers will also be treated to works previously unseen, such as Betsy´s Beach (2006) and Crow Tree (2007).
Are you tired of ´´how to publish books´´ that are full of fluff and no real information? I was, too. Before I began my publishing career with Kindle books, I read just about everything out there, looking for real answers to questions I had about the industry. But much to my disappointment, most of the books were filled with fluff or stories of people who ´´hit it big´´ without really telling me how or why. I determined to jump in and learn for myself - and that´s exactly what I did. I started with my first book, How to Work from Home and Make Money, and then quickly published three more. I was looking for the topic of my fifth book when it hit me - why not share what I´ve learned with the people who still haven´t made the leap and published their own book? It all began when I received an email from a book promotion site. One of the features was a how to book about publishing Kindle books, so out of curiosity, I followed the link and read the reviews. And sure enough, the page was full of people complaining that the book didn´t contain any valuable information. So here´s what I decided to do. Write a book that answers all of the real questions without painting an unrealistic view of the possibilities. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anna Crowe.

When Joyce Kendall arrives in New York, fresh out of Clifton College in Iowa, she has a job and an apartment waiting for her. The job´s as a first reader for Armageddon Publications. The apartment´s at 21 Gay Street, and the small Federal-period house is already home to a lesbian couple, Jean Fitzgerald and Terri Leigh, and an out-of-work newspaperman, Pete Galton. The relationships of these four people under one roof add up to a fast-paced story that is not only satisfying fiction but a rare window on Bohemian life in the late 1950s. A drug-fueled rent-party-turned-orgy at the apartment of one Fred Koans is just link to a world some older fans may recall. Gay Street, in the heart of Greenwich Village, runs for only a single block between Christopher Street and Waverly Place. The 1943 movie A Night to Remember portrays 13 Gay Street as the address of the building where most of the action, including a murder, occurs. In 1996, Sheryl Crow made a video on Gay Street for the song ´´A Change Would Do You Good.´´21 Gay Street, a very early Lawrence Block novel, was originally published under the pen name Sheldon Lord. It was never reprinted after its initial publication in 1960, and this marks its first appearance in 56 years. As such, it seems an ideal choice to lead off Lawrence Block’s Collection of Classic Erotica, and the book´s original cover, with a painting by the great Paul Rader, is reproduced here. 1.

Billy Coffey has been compared to both Flannery O´Connor and Shirley Jackson. Journey with him to Mattingly, Virginia, and discover what marks the boundary between a miracle from God and the imagination of a child. ´´An inspirational and atmospheric tale.´´ (Library Journal, starred review of When Mockingbirds Sing) Leah is a child from Away, isolated from her peers because of her stutter. After her family moves to Mattingly, she begins painting scenes that are epic in scope, brilliant in detail, and suffused with rich, prophetic imagery. When the event foreshadowed in the first painting dramatically comes true, the town takes notice. Leah attributes her ability to foretell the future to an invisible friend she calls the Rainbow Man. Some of the townsfolk are enchanted with her. Others fear her. But there is one thing they all agree on - there is no such thing as the Rainbow Man. The town minister is unraveled by the notion that a mere child with no formal training may be hearing from God more clearly than he does. While the town bickers over what to do with this strange child, the content of Leah´s paintings grows darker. Still, Leah insists that the Rainbow Man´s heart is pure. Then a dramatic and tragic turn of events leaves the town reeling and places everyone´s lives in danger. The people of Mattingly face a single choice: Will they cling to what they know - or embrace the things Leah believes in that cannot be seen? ´´This intriguing read challenges mainstream religious ideas of how God might be revealed to both the devout and the doubtful.´´ (Publishers Weekly)Includes a sneak peek at Coffey´s novel The Curse of Crow Hollow. 1.
