The quintessential summer fruit is immortalized in a new book, Cherry Home Companion. It's a full-color compendium of cherry lore and wisdom, cherished memories and sensational recipes collected by veteran journalist Patty LaNoue Stearns from some of the country's finest chefs, food writers, home cooks and cherry purveyors. Readers will find more than 130 mouthwatering dishes--everything from appetizers to desserts--in this handsome hardcover cookbook, which is sweetened with reproductions of vintage cherry festival posters and postcards, cherry poems, cherry songs and lots of cherry chat. "Our goal was to include only fabulous, luscious recipes, nothing bland, boring or middle-of-the-road," says Stearns, a Detroit-area native now living in Traverse City, Michigan--cherry capital of the world. "There are so many new ways to include cherries in a menu, and I believe we have collected the best examples within the pages of Cherry Home Companion."

In 1889, the editor of the San Francisco Examiner, having accepted an article from Rudyard Kipling, informed the author that he should not bother to submit any more. "This isn't a kindergarten for amateur writers," the editor wrote. "I'm sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just don't know how to use the English language." A century later, John Grisham was turned down by sixteen agents before he found representation-and it was only after Hollywood showed an interest in The Firm that publishers began to take him seriously. The anxiety of rejection is an inevitable part of any writer's development. In this book, Ralph Keyes turns his attention from the difficulty of putting pen to paper-the subject of his acclaimed The Courage to Write -to the frustration of getting the product to the public. Inspiration isn't nearly as important to the successful writer, he argues, as tenacity, and he offers concrete ways to manage the struggle to publish. Drawing on his long experience as a writer and teacher of writing, Keyes provides new insight into the mind-set of publishers, the value of an agent, and the importance of encouragement and hope to the act of authorial creation.

Expert writing advice from the editor of the Boston Globe best-seller, The Writer's Home Companion Dissertation writers need strong, practical advice, as well as someone to assure them that their struggles aren't unique. Joan Bolker, midwife to more than one hundred dissertations and co-founder of the Harvard Writing Center, offers invaluable suggestions for the graduate-student writer. Using positive reinforcement, she begins by reminding thesis writers that being able to devote themselves to a project that truly interests them can be a pleasurable adventure. She encourages them to pay close attention to their writing method in order to discover their individual work strategies that promote productivity; to stop feeling fearful that they may disappoint their advisors or family members; and to tailor their theses to their own writing style and personality needs. Using field-tested strategies she assists the student through the entire thesis-writing process, offering advice on choosing a topic and an advisor, on disciplining one's self to work at least fifteen minutes each day; setting short-term deadlines, on revising and defing the thesis, and on life and publication after the dissertation. Bolker makes writing the dissertation an enjoyable challenge.
