Spark : how creativity works by Julie Burstein( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did Richard Ford's cat influence his work as a novelist' HOW is Chuck Close's portraiture driven by his inability to remember faces' What pivotal moment helped Rosanne Cash understand the healing power of the stage' Creativity is an elusive subject. We enjoy its fruits'movies, novels, paintings, songs'but rarely are we privy to what happens in the creative process. In Spark, Julie Burstein traces the roots of some of the twenty-first century's most influential and creative thinkers, including Joyce Carol Oates, Yo-Yo Ma, David Milch, Isabel Allende, and Joshua Redman. Burstein pulls back the curtain to reveal the sources of these artists' inspiration and the processes that bring their work into being. "These artists may not change lead into gold," Burstein writes, "but they lift materials from their familiar contexts, combining, reshaping, transforming them into works of art that change the way we see the world." Spark is an invaluable resource for the aspiring writer and artist, but the need for creativity extends well beyond the world of paintbrushes and typewriters. Creativity is integral to business, parenting, education, science, and, perhaps most poignantly, our personal relationships. Rarely do books on creativity illuminate and inspire; this marvelous volume will help you find a spark of your own

Karen Hollander is a celebrated attorney who recently removed herself from consideration for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Spy : the funny years( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With equal parts nostalgia and snarkiness, this history /anthology celebrates the now legendary satirical magazine during its heyday-aka 1986 to 1991, when founders and partners Andersen (Turn of the Century and host of NPR's Studio 360) and Carter (editor of Vanity Fair) ran the show (the magazine folded as a monthly in 1994). "We were very lucky to catch two waves-the post-'60s ironic mood and the go-go financial mood," observes Andersen, and these pages offer plenty of opportunity to travel back to those heady days of "Separated at Birth-" and "The Spy Guide to Postmodern Everything." Those who wondered what life at Spy was really like will also be rewarded: former deputy editor Kalogerakis (now deputy editor at Travel + Leisure) has collected plenty of stories about minuscule paychecks, ridiculously tight budgets and bacchanalian parties (Andersen and Carter chime in with extensive annotations). Certain to be on the holiday wish lists of aging hipsters. (Nov.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information."

Pleasure : the architecture and design of Rockwell Group( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rockwell Group turns dreams into space. From steel and stone, color and light, Rockwell Group creates environments that are at once destinations and a means of transport to new worlds, new experiences. Rockwell Group has crafted a vital form of vernacular architecture and design, one that crackles with the kinetic energy of the avant-garde, the shimmer of Hollywood, the sensual mystery of a far off, yet somehow familiar, place. With projects such as the Kodak Theatre, a masterful pairing of technology and spectacle worthy of the Academy Awards; the Mohegan Sun casino, a dazzling scenescape of myth and wonder; and the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, where learning and discovery help advance the healing process; Rockwell group has garnered accolades for a signature design strategy that seduces, entertains, informs, and inspires. Pleasure is the first book to examine the theaters, hotels, stadiums, restaurants, casinos and other spaces across the country that have positioned Rockwell Group as one of America's most influential, acclaimed, and popular firms."--Jacket

Loose lips : real words, real people, real funny by Jamie Malanowski( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever wanted to be that fly on the wall? To listen in on conversations that were meant to be intimate, private affairs? To overhear, verbatim, the words of famous entertainers, distinguished politicians, princes, potentates, and petty criminals? Welcome to an eavesdropper's jamboree, where you can revel in the real, unexpurgated words of real people in all their astonishing, appalling, and hilarious entirely - taken from sources like transcripts of testimony that was sealed, depositions that had been buried, recordings of exchanges that were cut from the official broadcasts, conversations considered so confidential, so off-the-record, so privileged and personal that we thought, Hey, why not share them with the whole world?
