Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm of Hemingway himself.

Even as a young girl, growing up in the Bronx, Mary Higgins Clark knew she wanted to be a writer. The gift of storytelling was a part of her Irish ancestry, so it followed naturally that she would use her sharp eye, keen intelligence, and inquisitive nature to create stories.
In this personal memoir, Clark tells the story of her amazing life, from a child of the depression, to the intrigues of family life and her unyeilding struggle to get published. She began writing stories at the kitchen table; finally selling the first one for one hundred dollars, after six years and forty rejections. When asked if she might give up writing for a life of leisure, Marv replied, "Never. To be happy for a year, win the lottery. To be happy for life, do what you love."

So many of our dreams at first
seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the
will, they become inevitable. Christopher Reeve shows that we are all capable
of overcoming seemingly insurmountable hardships. He describes his own struggles
since his spinal cord injury that left him virtually paralized. Yet, says
Reeve, many able-bodied people choose paralysis - choosing
to live with self-doubt and the fear of taking risks. Life is not to be
taken for granted but to be lived fully with zeal, curiosity, and gratitude.
A powerful message of hope.
