The single most powerful book I've ever experienced. It is simply a life changing event. Reading this book and living this Artist's Way, opens ourselves up to the glorious nature of the world and creativity. This should be required reading. For everyone. Especially the people who don't think they are an artist. Art is life. We are all creative and feel better when we express it. And art is boundless. You can express it anyway you want. Whatever it is that you want, this book is it.

Thank you Julia Cameron. Thank you.

The title story is excellent. It is short storytelling at it's best.
This collection is a look into early assorted Vonnegut that reveals the development of his writing and life. A must have for all fans of the esteemed Mr. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. His short stories are sharp and funny and hold as true as they did when they were written, long ago in another century. He teaches us much about this world we all inhabit. Things that other people might not tell you. READ THIS!

The essential book for those of us who like rhymes.
I read it front to back and back to front sometimes.
This maybe my most favorite book.
All poets must look.

If you've only read Stephen Kings novels or seen his movies, you are missing out. His short stories are my favorite of all his writing. Even more than The Gunslinger. Although this is not my favorite collection of his (Night Shift is), it is one of his best books in my opinion. Read this and then read Night Shift!

This book is gorgeous! The story is a magnificent and unique story of, the time traveler's wife. It is a spiraling tale of two lives lived independently and shared. Their time, their past, their futures overlap. And yet, the husband lives in a world all his own with no control over when or where he is at any given moment. It is a fresh perspective on life, love, and cause and effect. This is book is a rare treasure, and a first novel at that! Kudos, Audrey! I cannot wait for your next book.
