Coretta -- Much More Than One Letter
13 February 2017 | 6:12 pm Books - The Huffington Post

Mitch McConnell made his mark on Black History Month early, by figuratively slapping Senator Elizabeth Warren down on the Senate floor -- as she tried to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King opposing Attorney General Jeff Sessions back when he was under consideration for a federal judgeship in 1986. As important as the letter is to the dialogue over racism then and now, it was only a tiny part of the leadership and legacy of Coretta Scott King herself. She was a peace activist,...

The Use of the "F-Word" in Book Titles
13 February 2017 | 5:30 pm Books - The Huffington Post

While the use of the F-word in books, movies and other media is now as common as oxygen, I recently read that it is now making its way more than ever into the actual titles of books, and is becoming a prominent feature in their cover designs, certainly destined for even greater proliferation. To those of us who grew up unaccustomed to that infamous word as a descriptive expletive, it does come with a wink and a gulp. When I was growing up during the depression in Brooklyn, the verbal or...


To Heaven and Back: Anita Moorjani
13 February 2017 | 12:26 pm Books - The Huffington Post

Porch Light People: Individuals who are fully themselves. They are not influenced by "shoulds" from the culture or other people. They instead live from their inner light. My first Porch Light Profile is about New York Times best selling author Anita Moorjani.

What do the Industrial Revolution, the Roaring Twenties, the advent of the college fraternity, and the gay liberation movement have in common?

His new book, Darling Baby Mine: A Son's Extraordinary Search for His Mother, describes the many obstacles he encountered on his journey to find her. Speaking in January at the American Library in Paris and then over dinner at Josephine's Restaurant, St. Jorre said his...


Book Passage in Sausalito: A New Outlet Offers Hope, Community, and Yes, Books
9 February 2017 | 3:59 pm Books - The Huffington Post

In these strange and often scary (but rebellious!) times, I'm sure I'm not the only one finding hopeful signs in whatever I can: a new baby, a sunny day, the fact that books by Rep. John Lewis, George Orwell, Sinclair Lewis, and, most recently, the long-departed Frederick Douglass are flying off the shelves (a small upside to having the country's least-literate president in office). And speaking of books, the literary website Lithub.com (highly recommended!), taking note of "the growing number...

Creativity Frozen? How to Start Writing Again After a Long Hiatus
7 February 2017 | 1:47 pm Books - The Huffington Post

A confession: I stopped writing fiction for two months recently--the first time I have ever stumbled to a complete halt. Why? The usual reasons: 1. THE ELECTION. I couldn't focus on fiction when truth seemed so much stranger. 2. HOLIDAYS. Let's admit it: for women writers, holidays are time and brain drains. 3. DOUBT. I had sent the first 200 pages of my new novel to my agent. Her response? "Um, no." 4. MONEY. Life isn't getting any cheaper and fiction isn't any getting any easier to sell....


The Mainstreaming of the Word
7 February 2017 | 12:32 pm Books - The Huffington Post

I grew up among writers. My father was a journalist for the London Times, who later went on to write seventeen books. My mother was an editor at Faber and Faber. T.S. Eliot sat in the next office to my Mum. Back in the 1960s, publishing was known as "the gentleman's profession." Deals were made with handshakes, and the decision to publish was made entirely on the merit of the work -- the quality of the word. What else could there possibly be? "And every phrase And sentence that is right...

Lear's Cosmic Constant
7 February 2017 | 10:42 am Books - The Huffington Post

Shakespeare's Lear starts off at the edge of a cliff and jumps. That's essentially the plot of the play. If Lear had his marbles, he never would have made his outrageous demand. Perhaps his disinhibition is the first stage of senile dementia. Things never improve which is. in effect. the nature of matter. Once man is born his death begins. Something comes out of nothing and nothing comes out of something. Lear: "Nothing will come of nothing" (I,ii), Gloucester: "The quality of nothing hath not...

Pornosophy: Joan Acocella's "'Fuck'-ing Around"
3 February 2017 | 9:32 am Books - The Huffington Post

Joan Acocella has written an essay about fuck books ("'Fuck'--ing Around," The New York Review of Books, 2/9/17). Not an essay about fucking, mind you, but about the word "fuck." The two books under consideration are What the F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves by Benjamin Bergen and In Praise of Profanity by Michael Adams.

Thoreau is Alive (and Crankier Than Ever) on His 200th Birthday
30 January 2017 | 2:16 pm Books - The Huffington Post

In a recent piece in the Book Review section of The New York Times ("Celebrating Two Centuries of Thoreau") John Williams reminds us that "if the air at Walden had been really, really health-giving" Henry David Thoreau would be turning 200 in 2017. If you're at all like me, you include Thoreau with the most original writers of his time, and in fact, of just about any era. Rarely a day passes when I don't wish he were around to offer some perspective on the endless stream of gadgets, apps, and...

Ruth Whippman's "America the Anxious: How Our Pursuit of Happiness Is Creating a Nation of Nervous Wrecks" Is The Most Interesting Book of 2016 and I Disagree With It
24 January 2017 | 1:57 pm Books - The Huffington Post

Ruth Whippman is whip smart; her writing is nothing short of a genius. And scathingly hysterical. Her sociological insights into the New Age movement are spot on and her skewering of Positive Psychology is brilliant. Ms. Whippman would absolutely loathe the sold-out happiness and mindfulness workshops that I teach at the Esalen Institute! Firstly, here is where Ms. Whippman is irrefutable: the $10 billion happiness/mindfulness industrial complex has corrupted researchers such as Martin Seligman...


Happy Birthday To One Of America's Greatest Authors
24 January 2017 | 6:03 am Books - The Huffington Post

Today is Edith Wharton's 155th birthday, and I feel that she's almost like family. In my senior year of college, I read the Pulitzer-winning Wharton biography by R.W.B. Lewis and was impressed by Wharton's relentless drive to succeed as an author and to perfect her craft. She was a true artist, but also a woman tuned into the business side of writing, something that stuck with me as I launched my own writing career soon after. I read about a dozen of her books that year, amazed by her wit, her...

Perhaps major League pitching coach Rick Peterson and leadership expert Judd Hoekstra can shed some light on this. The two recently wrote


Return of an Epic Fantasy King: An Interview with Tad Williams, Author of "The Heart of What Was Lost"

When internationally bestselling fantasy author Tad Williams decided to write a second series set in Osten Ard--the world of his beloved Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn epic fantasy trilogy--it began on a dare. His wife, the editor Deborah Beale, suggested that the world of Osten Ard was rich with potential for a new series.
