"The Best of Martha Beck's Columns from O, the Oprah Magazine"--Cover.
Some of us start over willingly, and others are forced by circumstance-but everyone who finds herself back at square one could use a dose of courage and comfort. Readers will discover both in O's Little Guide to Starting Over, a collection of stirring pieces on the topic of beginning again. Just a few of the compelling writers and astute thinkers in the mix: Martha Beck, who advises us that embracing failure may lead to our greatest successes; Kelly Corrigan, who writes that accepting our lack of control can be both freeing and healing; and Junot Diaz, who offers reassurance that pushing ahead, even when it feels impossible, is the way to become the person we were meant to be. With moving stories, practical insight, and unforgettable voices, O's Little Guide to Starting Over is an essential road map for those who are breaking free, rising above, and making their way forward.
From the beginning, readers have come to O for help in figuring out who they were meant to be. O's Little Guide to Finding Your True Purpose is a blend of practical advice and real-life stories of trial, error and triumph. Each entry in this engaging and thoughtful volume guides readers in their quest to come into their own. Contributors include Paige Williams on the lessons she learned from aptitude testing; Martha Beck on how to chart your course; Patti Smith on how she found her calling; Elizabeth Gilbert on the enlightening aspects of failure; Caroline Myss on discovering your best path; and more. 'Every single person who is born has a purpose,' Oprah Winfrey has said. 'Sometimes your calling is right in your own neighbourhood.'
Vuelve la escritora más misteriosa y fascinante de la actualidad, autora de la saga Dos amigas, con más de treinta millones de lectores. La amistad, el primer amor, el cambio climático, los celos, el feminismo, nuestra relación con las plantas, el secreto de una pareja amorosa duradera o la belleza son algunos de los grandes temas sobre los que Elena Ferrante escribió a petición de The Guardian. El resultado es este libro, íntimo e inteligente, en el que, a través de los textos publicados cada sábado a lo largo de un año, la aclamada autora invita a pensar, comparte recuerdos e ideas y emociona como lo hacen sus novelas. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "Elena Ferrante is the best-selling author of My Brilliant Friend, now an HBO original series. Collected here for the first time are the seeds of future novels, the timely reflections of this internationally beloved storyteller, the abiding preoccupations of a writer who has been called "one of the great novelists of our time" (New York Times). "This is my last column, after a year that has scared and inspired me... I have written as an author of novels, taking on matters that are important to me and that--if I have the will and the time--I'd like to develop within real narrative mechanisms." With these words, Elena Ferrante bid farewell to her year-long collaboration with The Guardian newspaper. For a full year, she wrote weekly articles, the subjects of which had been suggested by The Guardian editors, making the writing process a sort of prolonged interlocution. The subjects ranged from first love to climate change, from enmity among women to the experience of seeing her novels adapted for film and TV."
