Figuring Shit Out: Love, Laughter, Suicide, and Survival by Amy BiancolliYour life isnt over. My dad says this. I mean, YOUR life isnt over. Beyond the kids. Youll go on living, doing things. This isnt it.
I know, I assure him. I have the kids. They need me. Theyre my life now.
OK, he replies, then grunts—more of a brief hum. He only hums when he thinks Im full of shit.
Shockingly single. Amy Biancollis life went off script more dramatically than most after her husband of twenty years jumped off the roof of a parking garage. Left with three children, a three-story house, and a pile of knotty psychological complications, Amy realizes the flooding dishwasher, dead car battery, rapidly growing lawn, basement sump pump, and broken doorknob arent going to fix themselves. She also realizes that figuring shit out means accepting the horrors that came her way, rolling with them, slogging through them, helping others through theirs, and working her way through life with love and laughter.

Another work of uncompromised literary analysis, thought, and feeling, from the mind of Bloom: towering, real, invaluable. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.

By Harold Bloom. Riverhead Books. Through her anesthetic haze, she wondered to whom the voice belonged until she recognized it as her own, speaking a poem she had known by heart since childhood and somehow retrieved from deep memory during induced sleep. Bloom has this kind of heart-relation to literature. Arguably the most influential critic of the last quarter-century, Bloom has always written in a peculiarly mixed mode: at times he seems possessed, carried out of himself into a trance brought on by meditation on a work of literary art, but at other times he seems a self-conscious performer brandishing literary props in a performance that is all about him. Self-contradiction is part of his appeal. He has little use for theology, in the sense of systematic thought that claims to disclose some purposeful order in the universe, although in an earlier book, "The American Religion," he celebrated Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, as a genius unsurpassed among all Americans in his "religion-making imagination.
Job ,28 Whence then cometh wisdom? Psalm Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. New International Version But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell? Where can they find understanding? And where is the place of understanding?
