I Never Met a Story I Didn't Like Book Review:

For years, Todd Snider has been one of the most beloved country-folk singers in the United States. He had a Top 40 hit with “Talking Seattle Grunge Rock Blues,” which gave national audiences the first taste of his insightful songwriting, at once satirical and sincere. Hailed by critics as one of the top albums of 2004, East Nashville Skyline was followed by The Devil You Know and The Excitement Plan. Snider's songs took on George W. Bush and America's recent involvement in foreign war, along with a host of more intimate topics. As good as Snider's albums have been, his in-concert monologues are even better. His shows are a loose-limbed, informal experience: it's often just him and a guitar. He introduces songs with stories that can run as long as twenty minutes, always displaying his charm and wit. As he's allowed his storytelling to evolve along with his music, Snider has become not only a modern day Bob Dylan but a modern day Will Rogers as well—an everyman whose intelligence, self deprecation, experience, and, above all, humor make him a uniquely American character.

I've Never Met An Idiot On The River Book Review:

Now in paperback, this New York Times best-selling collection of humorous anecdotes and heartfelt observations from Henry Winkler shares the joy and wisdom he’s accumulated while honing his skills as a fly-fisherman. An accomplished sportsman who meticulously records the measurements of every fish he hooks, Winkler has learned that his yearly trips to the river are not just about catching trout. More importantly, they’re about adopting the proper perspective on life. Or, as Winkler puts it, when he’s fly-fishing, the river acts like a “washing machine for my brain,” recharging him and reminding him that anything is possible. Winkler makes a habit of sharing his angling adventures with his wife, Stacey, and their three children, Jed, Zoe, and Max. The Winklers’ annual trip, where they can escape the busy-ness of everyday life, has brought them together as a family. On the river, Henry has grown to appreciate the support his wife and children give him, learned to listen, and developed the confidence to publish his outdoor photography in his first non-fiction book. An expression of the inherent optimism that stems from the simplicity of the outdoors, I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River is an invitation to share in the realizations and achievements Winkler has found while fishing. Hopefully it will help you catch a few of your own.

The Last Time They Met Book Review:

A dazzling story about marriage, forgiveness, and chances not taken, by the bestselling author of Body Surfing and A Wedding in December. At a literary festival a poet named Linda Fallon meets for the first time in years a fellow poet, Thomas Janes, whose fame has grown during a decade of seclusion. This is no chance meeting. Thomas saw that Linda was scheduled to appear, and chose this moment to re-establish contact with a woman he had passionately pursued years earlier. Their affair was disastrous for them both, a turning point in their lives, and the damage they did in those years still haunts them both. THE LAST TIME THEY MET moves backward in time from Linda at age 52 to explore her life years earlier, at age 26, and still earlier, at 17. Anita Shreve examines the extraordinary resonance a single choice, even a single word, can have over the course of a lifetime.

The Friends I've Never Met Book Review:

What happens when you meet the people from inside your phone? "An inspiring story. Innovative and witty." WILDSOUND Screenplay Festival "I loved it. Sensitive, insightful and funny! Let me know when we get to do the reading!" Actress Forbes Riley "Honest, truthful, funny and smart, with an accessible story line and characters the audience will relate to." Actor Mark Feuerstein Struggling writer Jessica Page wants more out of her life in the Jersey City suburbs. She wants to be more. She wants someone to notice her. Not as the overtired, worn-out mommy she sees in the mirror every day, but as the sexy, exciting, woman she knows she can be. She and her husband Brian barely have a private moment anymore with three children vying for their attention. When Brian refuses to take Jessica on as a client with his literary agency, it's the last straw. Feeling bored and alone, she logs onto Facebook and joins a celebrity's discussion board, Jack Venture's Hollywood Talk. There, she meets some witty, outgoing people, including People Magazine's most recent Sexiest Man Alive, actor and producer Jack Venture. Jessica and her older sister Jenny make unlikely friendships with board members Alexis, a young, aspiring actress living in Manhattan, and Frank, a middle-aged business man whose wife has been hospitalized for six months. Their ride together -one of friendship, laughter, and self-discovery--ends in some unique twists. It's a journey that reminds us real life isn't like the movies. If we're brave enough to take a leap of faith, we can get movie moments...every now and then.This is a screenplay, and you can read it like a light novel. It's about balancing marriage, motherhood and career-- but since it's also about making friends on the Internet, and love and family, men will "get it" in many ways. The perfect beach / bedtime read, and a date movie for all seasons.

Having Never Met Book Review:

Poetry. Women's Studies. Translated from the Latvian by Jayde Will. Inga Piz?ne captures a vibrant inner and outer life that moves seamlessly between the domestic landscape of the home and the streets of the city. In poems that are spare and precise, Piz?ne evokes rich emotions, exploring the human desire to connect in meaningful and physical ways as well as how intimacy is thwarted in a modern, technologically-driven world. Piz?ne's closely-observed portraits of the human condition, drawn from her first two collections and now available to English speakers thanks to Jayde Will's translations, are guaranteed to resonate with readers everywhere. HAVING NEVER MET delivers delight with each turn of the page as the seasons unfold, ripe with meaning.
