Virgin time by Patricia Hampl( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgin Time is a book that goes to the heart of one of the most profound yet least discussed issues of contemporary American life: the individual's search for faith. It is "a passionate inquiry," as Patricia Hampl puts it, "into the sources of wonder that cause a person to say, 'I believe.'" Hampl's book begins as a grudging quest - not to find something, but to shake the indelible brand of a Catholic upbringing. In her search, she travels to the "old world" of
Tell me true : memoir, history, and writing a life( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Balancing precariously between history and literature, memoir writers have finally found their place on the bookshelf. But increased notoriety brings intense scrutiny: memoirists are expected to create a narrative worthy of fiction while also saying true to the facts. Historians, too, handle tricky issues of writing from "real life," when imagination must fill gaps in the historical record." "In this landmark collection, Patricia Hampl and Elaine Tyler May have gathered fourteen original essays from award-winning memoirists and historians. They are all storytellers, wrestling with a fascinating gray area where memory intersects with history and where the necessities of narrative collide with mundane facts. And whether the record emerges from archival sources or from personal memory, these writers show how to make the leap to telling a good story, while also telling us true."--Jacket

Sleeping by the Mississippi by Alec Soth( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soths̕ richly descriptive, large format color photographs describe an eclectic mix of individuals, landscapes, and interiors ... In the books̕ forty-six ... pictures ... [Soth] merges a documentary style with a poetic sensibility. The Mississippi is less the subject of the book than its organizing structure. Not bound by a rigid concept or ideology, the series is created out of a quintessentially American spirit of wanderlust"--Http://www.steidlville.com

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"F. Scott Fitzgerald stands as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. His biographers all note the importance of his boyhood in St. Paul, where he gained his sensitivity about wealth and position - later made evident in such classics as The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night. This collection brings together the best of Fitzgerald's St. Paul stories, some virtually unknown, others classics of short fiction."--Jacket

Raising girls in Bohemia : meditations of an American father : a memoir in essays by Richard Katrovas( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A provocative collection of personal and political essays by an American writer, Raising Girls in Bohemia chronicles the life of a father raising three perfectly bilingual, culturally bifurcated, Czech-American daughters. While tracing what fatherhood has taught him about the world, Katrovas delves into a range of intricately related yet far-flung subjects including fine dining, sexual epithets, gender identity, racism, poetry, and education, tracing the contours of his ignorance about all things. Through the course of these fine essays, Katrovas unveils what it means to be an American and to be a man, and especially what it means to be a father of three daughters, born in Prague, in what we can only hope is the twilight of patriarchy." --Amazon

ART OF THE WASTED DAY by Patricia Hampl( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A meditation on the value of daydreaming and ease, and the primacy of the imagination, by one of our finest prose stylists Modern life only seems to become increasingly hectic and stressful, as we try to cram more and more into each day. In her new book, acclaimed author Patricia Hampl argues for the necessity of daydreaming and leisure in our over-amped lives. Written out of a lifelong fascination with contemplation, solitude, and silence, The Art of the Wasted Day takes the form of a narrative travelogue. Hampl brings the reader on a journey around the world as she visits the homes of several exemplars of leisure from the past, who made repose and seclusion their goal, indeed their art form. She braids her own life stories into these pilgrimages: lazing her days away as a young girl, daydreaming under a beechnut tree; undertaking a retreat at a Benedictine monastery; floating down the Mississippi River in an old cabin cruiser boat, a "sheer, dreamy waste of time" that was the greatest travel experience of her life. Hampl's book is also about someone who wanted to live "the life of the mind," the idea of one's thoughts being a life"--
