What It Isdemonstrates a tried-and-true creative method that is playful, powerful and accessible to anyone with an inquisitive wish to write or remember.

Lynda Barry explores the depths of the inner and outer realms of creation and imagination, where play can be serious, monsters have purpose and not knowing is an answer unto itself. How do objects summon memories? What do real images feel like? These types of questions permeate the pages ofWhat It Is, with words attracting pictures and conjuring places through a pen that first and foremost keeps on moving. Her insight and sincerity will tackle the most persistent of inhibitions, calling back every kid who quit drawing to feel alive again at the experiential level.

The World Is What It Is
Author: Patrick French

Release Date: 2012-08-09
Pages: 450
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This is the first major biography of V.S. Naipaul, Nobel Prize winner and one of the most compelling literary figures of the last fifty years. With great feeling for his formidable body of work, and exclusive access to his private papers and personal recollections, Patrick French has produced a lucid and astonishing account of this enigmatic genius: one which looks sensitively and unflinchingly at his relationships, his development as a writer and as a man, his outspokenness, his peerless creativity, and his extraordinary and enduring position both outside and at the very centre of literary culture. ‘Its clarity, honesty, even-handedness, its panoramic range and close emotional focus, above all its virtually unprecedented access to the dark secret life at its heart, make it one of the most gripping biographies I’ve ever read’ Hilary Spurling, Observer ‘A brilliant biography: exemplary in its thoroughness, sympathetic but tough in tone . . . Reading it I was enthralled – and frequently amused (how incredibly funny Naipaul can be!)’ Spectator ‘A masterly performance . . . If a better biography is published this year, I shall be astonished’ Allan Massie, Literary Review ‘Remarkable. This biography will change the way we read Naipaul’s books’ Craig Brown, Book of the Week, Mail on Sunday

Sometimes it’s the little things we overlook that keep us from experiencing God’s best. We all have a purpose and destiny in discovering our best selves. As we begin to seek the path for our lives, the lessons we learn from God’s Word are considered “stepping-stones.” They are not there to make us stumble, but to move us into the next level of our lives. It Is What It Isdiscusses the lessons author Debra A. Scales has learned through God’s Word, explaining what it really means to live according to the Word of God and why it is important to obey His Word. Each lesson of God’s Word moves us closer to our destiny and is valuable to our growth. As we grow in the Word of God, some lessons may be painful; we can think of these as “growing pains,” designed to bring out the best in us. Scales shares the lessons she has learned and the tests and trials she has endured without giving up. Each day brings new challenges and new opportunities to experience the glory of God’s Word. In It Is What It Is, author Debra A. Scales reveals the beauty of God’s world and the magnificence of His Word.
