Описание: Although marriage is for grown-ups, very few of us are grown up when we marry. Here, the bestselling author of Suddenly Sixty and Necessary Losses presents her life-affirming perspective on the joys, heartaches, difficulties, and possibilities of a grown-up marriage -- and no, that's not an oxymoron Featuring interviews with married women and men, the findings of couples therapists, the truths offered by literature and movies, and a bemused exploration of her own marriage, Judith Viorst illuminates the issues couples struggle with from "I do" through "till death do us part." Examining marital rivalry, marital manners, marital sex (extramarital, too), marital fighting and apologies, what kids do for (and to) marriage, and the boredom and bliss of everyday married life, Viorst leaves no marital stone unturned. From the early years when we wonder "Who is this person?" and "What am I doing here?" to the realities of divorce, remarriage, and growing older (and old) together, Viorst offers insights and advice with honesty, humanity, and humor -- all the while recognizing how tough it is to be married and, when it works, how very precious it can be.

Описание: Judith Viorst's most adored book is undoubtedly the children's classic "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day." In this new book, fans will recognize and be drawn to the Alexander they know and love--only now he's all grown up, with three kids of his own. When Judith's son Alexander announces that he, his wife, Marla, their daughter, Olivia (age five), and their two sons, Isaac (age two) and Toby (four months), would be staying with her and her husband for ninety days while their house was being renovated, Judy doesn't know quite how to repond. ""I tried to think of it as a magnificent, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not only to strengthen family ties and not only to really get to know the grandchildren, but also to further my personal growth while also achieving marital enrichment."" She decides that she'll have to learn to let go of her excessive devotion to domestic neatness and adherence to carefully planned schedules. As Judith's tightly run home turns into a high-octane madhouse of screaming grandkids, splattered floors, spilled milk, and tripped-over toys, she begins to understand that, despite the chaos, what she's been given truly is an amazing thing, an opportunity to know her children and grandchildren a little better than before, but also to reconnect with her husband as they hold hands, close their eyes, and wait patiently for move-out day. When the ""Alexander Five"" make a final departure to their newly refurbished home, Judith realizes that Alexander's wonderful, marvelous, excellent, terrific ninety days might have been the greatest gift her son could have given her--the gift of discovering forgotten memories, making loving families, and a chance to live life a little more deeply.

Описание: It's a little after four o'clock, and everyone's busy. Mom's on the phone, Dad's checking e-mail, and Katie's playing games with a friend. But there's one other person in the house, and no matter what he does - from painting a blue heart on the wall to turning the kitchen into a catastrophe (that's a really big mess) - none of his distracted family members come to stop him. What does a person have to do to get noticed around here?
This laugh-out-loud story by best-selling author Judith Viorst, accompanied by Christine Davenier's charming illustrations, perfectly captures how lonely it can feel even when the house is full of people - and just what it takes to get some attention.

Описание: America's engagement with the Arab world stretches back far beyond the Iraq wars. According to Milton Viorst, the current conflict is simply the latest round in a 1,400-year struggle between Christianity and Islam, in which the United States became a participant only in the last century. Today, the Bush Doctrine aims to free the Arab peoples from political oppression and create a democratic Iraq. So why are Arabs, and Iraqis in particular, so suspicious of our efforts? The explanation, Viorst says, is simple: "What the American leadership has miscalculated, or simply dismissed, is Arab nationalism." In Storm from the East, Viorst offers a balanced, lucid, and vital history of America's uneasy relationship with the Arab world and argues that brutal conflict in the region will continue until the West, with the United States taking the lead, honors the Arabs' insistence on deciding their own destiny. Viorst examines the long struggle of the Arab world to overthrow Western hegemony. He explores the Arab experiences with democracy and military despotism; Nasserite socialism in Egypt and Ba'athism in Syria and Iraq; tribal monarchy in Saudi Arabia and Jordan; guerrilla warfare waged by the Palestinians; and, finally, Islamic rebellion culminating in Osama bin Laden's extremist al-Qaeda. All have the same goal: the liberation of the Arabs from foreign domination. Storm from the East is a powerful work that, like no other, limns the political, religious, and social roots of Arab nationalism and the present-day unrest in the Middle East. From the Hardcover edition.

Описание: The beloved author of "Forever" "Fifty" and "Suddenly" "Sixty" tackles the ins and outs of becoming a septuagenarian with wry good humor. Fans of Viorst s funny, touching, and wise decades poems will love these verses filled with witty advice and reflections on marriage, milestones, and middle-aged children. Viorst explores, among the many other issues of this stage of life, the state of our sex lives and teeth, how we can stay married though thermostatically incompatible, and the joys of grandparenthood and shopping. Readers will nod with rueful recognition when she asks, Am I required to think of myself as a basically shallow woman because I feel better when my hair looks good?, when she presses a few helpful suggestions on her kids because they may be middle aged, but they re still my children, and when she graciously but not too graciously selects her husband s next mate in a poem deliciously subtitled If I Should Die Before I Wake, Here s the Wife You Next Should Take. Though Viorst acknowledges she is definitely not a good sport about the fact that she is mortal, her poems are full of the pleasures of life right now, helping us come to terms with the passage of time, encouraging us to keep trying to fix the world, and inviting us to consider drinking wine, making love, laughing hard, caring hard, and learning a new trick or two as part of our job description at seventy. "I'm Too Young to Be Seventy" is a joy to read and makes a heartwarming gift for anyone who has reached or is soon to reach that it s not so bad after all seventh decade."
