Are you waiting for the right man, the right job, the big break? And meanwhile, have you put all your other dreams and desires on hold? Jane Adams' provocative book asks: How much longer are you willing to wait? And what if Prince Charming never arrives? Will you continue to let life's possibilities pass you by because of outdated, inappropriate messages so deeply embedded in Sleeping Beauty's psyche that you don't even notice them? This book is for you if: You're a single woman who's afraid you'll never get married. Your biological clock is ticking and you worry you'll never have a baby. You're saving Paris for your honeymoon and you're not engaged yet. You believe a man will come along and save you from financial disaster. You think you've let your mother down. In fascinating conversations with single women whose lives are rich with passion, intimacy and challenge, Adams rings a liberating wake-up bell for single women and offers practical, workable solutions that don't depend on changing the world or changing other people. Because it's not about finding a man it's about finding yourself. Right Now!

Never before published in Kerouac's lifetime, this 1955 biography of the founder of Buddhism is a clear and powerful study of Siddartha Gautama's life and works. Wake Up recounts the story of Prince Siddhartha's royal upbringing and his father's wish to protect him from all human suffering, despite a prediction that he would become a great holy man in later life. Departing from his father's palace, Siddhartha adopts a homeless life, struggles with his meditations, and eventually finds Enlightenment. Written at the end of Kerouac's career, when he became increasingly interested in Buddhist teachings, and collected for the first time in one book, this fresh and accessible biography is both an important addition to Kerouac's work and a valuable introduction to the world of Buddhism itself.

Fairy tales are supposed to be magical, surprising, and exhilarating, an enchanting counterpoint to everyday life that nonetheless helps us understand and deal with the anxieties of that life. Today, however, fairy tales are far from marvelous—in the hands of Hollywood, they have been stripped of their power, offering little but formulaic narratives and tame surprises. If we want to rediscover the power of fairy tales—as Armando Maggi thinks we should—we need to discover a new mythic lens, a new way of approaching and understanding, and thus re-creating, the transformative potential of these stories. In Preserving the Spell, Maggi argues that the first step is to understand the history of the various traditions of oral and written narrative that together created the fairy tales we know today. He begins his exploration with the ur-text of European fairy tales, Giambattista Basile’s The Tale of Tales, then traces its path through later Italian, French, English, and German traditions, with particular emphasis on the Grimm Brothers’ adaptations of the tales, which are included in the first-ever English translation in an appendix. Carrying his story into the twentieth century, Maggi mounts a powerful argument for freeing fairy tales from their bland contemporary forms, and reinvigorating our belief that we still can find new, powerfully transformative ways of telling these stories.
