Crockett Johnson (born David Johnson Leisk, 1906-1975) and Ruth Krauss (1901-1993) were a husband-and-wife team that created such popular children's books as The Carrot Seed and How to Make an Earthquake. Separately, Johnson created the enduring children's classic Harold and the Purple Crayon and the groundbreaking comic strip Barnaby. Krauss wrote over a dozen children's books illustrated by others, and pioneered the use of spontaneous, loose-tongued kids in children's literature. Together, Johnson and Krauss's style--whimsical writing, clear and minimalist drawing, and a child's point-of-view--is among the most revered and influential in children's literature and cartooning, inspiring the work of Maurice Sendak, Charles M. Schulz, Chris Van Allsburg, and Jon Scieszka. This critical biography examines their lives and careers, including their separate achievements when not collaborating. Using correspondence, sketches, contemporary newspaper and magazine accounts, archived and personal interviews, author Philip Nel draws a compelling portrait of a couple whose output encompassed children's literature, comics, graphic design, and the fine arts. Their mentorship of now-famous illustrator Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) is examined at length, as is the couple's appeal to adult contemporaries such as Duke Ellington and Dorothy Parker. Defiantly leftist in an era of McCarthyism and Cold War paranoia, Johnson and Krauss risked collaborations that often contained subtly rendered liberal themes. Indeed, they were under FBI surveillance for years. Their legacy of considerable success invites readers to dream and to imagine, drawing paths that take them anywhere they want to go.

Is there interaction between love and work? If so, in what ways does it appear? The main incentive for this research is the notable increase of American and Dutch people who wish to spend more and more of their time working and who feel useless and robbed of their identity when separated from their jobs. It seems that work is considered more fulfilling and satisfying than love, which can be undermined by failing relationships, tension, depression, violence, addiction, crime or angry and unmanageable children. Whereas Proust described love in a milieu where most of the work was done by servants and artists, Freud was convinced that love and work were the two main pillars of society. This view has been echoed by psychologists, sociologists, philosophers and novelists. However, a new phenomenon is that men and women share love and work. Finding the right balance between the two is a hot topic in “how to” books, newspaper and magazine articles but the underlying connections have received little if any scrutiny. In fact it may well be a mission impossible since, as the Frankfurt School asserted, the capitalist powers, in search of profit, urge politicians to lure men, women and children onto the work floor by telling them work is a duty that not only will provide disposable income but also happiness and fulfillment in life. Hence people internalize this message without asking themselves why continuous consumption is more important than giving and receiving love, which they crave but seldom find. Although focusing on middle-class people between the ages of twenty five and forty who are travelling the “highway of life”, have paid jobs, a relationship of at least three years and children, this study should be of interest to everyone.

The final volume of The L.M. Montgomery Reader, A Legacy in Review examines a long overlooked portion of Montgomery’s critical reception: reviews of her books. Although Montgomery downplayed the impact that reviews had on her writing career, claiming to be amused and tolerant of reviewers’ contradictory opinions about her work, she nevertheless cared enough to keep a large percentage of them in scrapbooks as an archive of her career. Edited by leading Montgomery scholar Benjamin Lefebvre, this volume presents more than four hundred reviews from eight countries that raise questions about and offer reflections on gender, genre, setting, character, audience, and nationalism, much of which anticipated the scholarship that has thrived in the last four decades. Lefebvre’s extended introduction and chapter headnotes place the reviews in the context of Montgomery’s literary career and trace the evolution of attitudes to her work, and his epilogue examines the reception of Montgomery’s books that were published posthumously. A comprehensive account of the reception of Montgomery’s books, published during and after her lifetime, A Legacy in Review is the illuminating final volume of this important new resource for L.M. Montgomery scholars and fans around the world.

"Hortense Calisher is the author of eleven novels, six collections of stories or novellas, and two memoirs. The publication of her first book of short stories, In the Absence of Angels (1951), marked the debut of an important writer. For the past forty years her works have been consistently and widely reviewed. Calisher has long been celebrated (and censured) as a "writer's writer," a consummate stylist with an impressive range of subjects. Despite that range, however, Calisher's works possess a thematic coherence that has eluded critical notice. For more than forty years, she has spun out variations on the motif of rites of passage and of extradition. Her protagonists may yearn for stasis, for a firmly manageable reality, but finally emerge into a world where change is the only constant." "In The Fiction of Hortense Calisher, the first book-length study of Calisher's work, Kathleen Snodgrass demonstrates this theme's dominance. Following an introduction that provides biographical and critical background, she explores similarities in the structure of Calisher's works, grouping them together to illuminate both the general motif and its distinctive variations. In the first chapter, "Bridging the Gulf: The Autobiographical Stories," Snodgrass arranges Calisher's early stories into a biographically chronological order; a coherent narrative emerges that dramatizes Hester Elkin's rites of passage from childhood through adolescence to early adulthood. Hester Elkin is only the first of a succession of Calisher's protagonists to embrace life as an open-ended journey. In chapter 2, Snodgrass examines four Calisher novels that have in common tumultuous transitions from adolescence to adulthood. In Calisher, an essential part of that rite of passage is a "coming down from the heights" of theorizing and fantasy, into a willingness to grapple with mundane, adult realities. Chapter 3, "False Entries," focuses on two companion novels in which the central drama is the painful transition from stasis to movement." "Subsequent chapters focus on two very different types of movement: "Solo Flights" deals with characters sloughing off conventional lives like dead skins and setting off alone, while "Re-Entries" examines the opposite movement - here Calisher's characters re-enter what she has termed the "great enclosure of the norm." Later chapters discuss Calisher's two novels of space travel - works in which the primary voyage is psychic rather than physical - and works dealing with the voyaging life well into old age." "In her conclusion, "Calisher's 'Monologuing Eye,'" Snodgrass demonstrates the inseparability of style and theme in Calisher's works. Both stylistically and thematically, Calisher repudiates a predictably linear progression through life. If her style is, as some critics have remarked, "dense" and "elliptical," so, too, is her experience of the world. She leaves it to others to duplicate a received reality, choosing instead to take soundings on a world in flux."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
