Summary

A splendidly edited anthology of the greatest poems of one of America’s finest writers From the very beginning of May Sarton’s career, in her fiction, memoir, and poetry, her work has been touched by a deep sense of order. The careful structure of her work provides an elegant backdrop against which her emotions are free to unfold, rising up through the cracks and fissures of her poems’ architecture only to pass through and disappear like a summer thunderstorm. The author’s search for reason, love of nature, and diverse passions are on full display in this masterful collection, illustrating why May Sarton is considered one of the twentieth century’s finest literary minds.

    Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real esate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all. This masterpiece of American drama is now a major motion picture starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Alex Baldwain, Jonathan Pryce, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey.

    American Buffalo, which won both the Drama Critics Circle Award for the best American play and the Obie Award, is considered a classic of the American theater. Newsweek acclaimed Mamet as the “hot young American playwright . . . someone to watch.” The New York Times exclaimed in admiration: “The man can write!” Other critics called the play “a sizzler,” “super,” and “dynamite.”Now from Gregory Mosher, the producer of the original stage production, comes a stunning screen adaptation, directed by Michael Corrente and starring Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Franz, and Sean Nelson.A classic tragedy, American Buffalo is the story of three men struggling in the pursuit of their distorted vision of the American Dream. By turns touching and cynical, poignant and violent, American Buffalo is a piercing story of how people can be corrupted into betraying their ideals and those they love.

    A simplistic, slightly cynical, yet realistic look into the life and mind of a woman struggling to cope with one of the the pressures of being a strong female - Aging. 
    Written by a woman who knows what women accomplish, who they love, and who loves them; matters more than the vain, beautification of the way their lips purse together, the way their hair shimmers and flows, or the way their eye make-up can contradict the depth of their knowledge. But yet, knowing this, she still continues to struggle in the art of gracefully aging. 
    A woman, who, as she becomes more wise, experienced, and purposeful; struggles with why it seems the trade-off for that wisdom means losing the activeness and glow of her youth. 
    This book is written by a woman, who supports women in their success in being a woman. In keeping it real, keeping it honest, and knowing honesty doesn't sacrifice capability. 
    Profits from the sale of each book will go to support charitable organizations founded to empower women and create social change.
