3 GREAT BOOKS: I AM BECOMING THE WOMAN I'VE WANTED, 1ST ED Paperback: 256 pages Publisher: Papier-Mache Press (October 1994) Language: English ISBN-10: 0918949491 ISBN-13: 978-0918949493 Product Dimensions: 9 x 6.8 x 0.8 inches Shipping Weight: 1.2 pounds From Library Journal Editor of many anthologies, including When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, (Papier-Mache Pr., 1987), Martz is also founder of Papier-Mache Press. Her newest collection continues to feature prose, poetry, and photography by and about women, but the theme here is life as it is experienced through the female body. It would have been easy to compile a much thicker volume, but in the space provided she manages to select an impressive array of perspectives. The pieces are organized as if to follow the chronological life cycle, yet the overall resonance of the many voices being born and giving birth is anything but linear. Tending toward the emotive and always from the subjective, these pieces articulate what it is like to be Everywoman from every age. An inspirational glimpse geared toward general readership. Book Description The latest anthology from the editor of WHEN I AM AN OLD WOMAN I SHALL WEAR PURPLE and IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER I WOULD PICK MORE DAISIES focuses on the sometimes hidden and always powerful feelings that women have about their bodies. Using photographs, poems, and stories, Martz explores sexuality, coming of age, childbirth, physical power, menopause, aging, and more. From the Publisher I AM BECOMING THE WOMAN I'VE WANTED is a profound look at body image and self-appreciation written by women of all ages. But this is much more than just another book about body image. BECOMING is the proud winner of a 1995 American Book Award for its representation of American writing as culturally and ethnically diverse. "These pieces articulate what it is like to be Everywoman from every age." (Library Journal) Expressing the many aspects of women becoming comfortable with their bodies, these writers tackle a sensitive subject with grace and eloquence in this "honest exposure of private space." (Indianapolis News) About the Author Sandra Haldeman Martz is the founder-publisher of Papier-Mache Press and the editor of the bestselling anthology series (2.5 million copies sold worldwide) that includes At Our Core: Women Writing about Power, If I Had a Hammer: Women's Work, and When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple. Martz anthologies have won an American Book Award, two Benjamin Franklin Awards, an American Booksellers Association Book of the Year (ABBY) Honors Award, and a Grammy nomination (in the spoken word category) for the Audio Literature recording of Grow Old Along with Me-The Best Is Yet to Be. Martz received her MBA from California State University at Dominguez Hills and is a graduate of the UCLA Executive Development Program. She lives in Watsonville, California. REVIEWS: A Book for Real Women, By Marion "dragonfly80@hotmail.com" (Louisiana) This book should have an entire galaxy of stars! The poetry, photographs, and stories are all by and of real women. Thank God there are no movie stars in this awesome, down-to-earth book. If you love becoming a wise, older woman, then you must have this book. It affirms our womanhood as no other book I've ever read. Joy, Tears and Combustion, By Patricia Kramer (Madison, WI USA) This review is from: This book flows with wisdom about the stages of a woman's life. There is arm pumping joy, tears of compassion and sadness and the affirmation of the person within over the external skin. "..if by wearing silk, my value mounts what happens when I'm bare?" There are pieces that apply to whatever stage of life a woman is passing through. There are pieces that bring the smiles of remembering past stages. There are pieces that point to possible routes for the journeys to come. Read and enjoy this passage from "Combustion" "When I have a hot flash....I watch, astounded, as an invisible hand tosses water on the stones of my body, and I ignite. How can flesh not melt? Then, of necessity, I give up the watch and close my eyes and float on the water, and then the fire expends itself, and I pick up my little fan and create a breeze something like the ones that frequent northern lakes at night. Then I just sit in the quiet puddle of my flesh. If it is the middle of the night I sleep the good sleep of a person cleansed." Enchanting!, This is the third book of the series and it is the most sensitive and powerful! Poems celebrating womanhood and femininity, stories full of strength and emotions... I read this book before and I just finished it again.. so overwhelming with different experience in every page .. the boundless limits of a woman's endurance .. the feeling of satisfaction that gratifies a female giving her pride and strength.. This is a book that you can read over and over.. a poem one day ..a short story on another.. enjoy! A wonderful anthology, By Nicole Bradshaw "Nicole Bradshaw" (Jackson, MS USA) The poems, short stories, and particularly the photos in this book are so touching. I encourage women who are interested in self-discovery to read this book, because the passages inspired me to reflect on myself, my life, and my relationships with those I love. This is a good book for any woman who is going through changes in her life. (It would be a good graduation gift, a good gift for a woman getting married or having a baby, and a wonderful birthday present.) The book celebrates strong women, fragile women, mothers, daughters, growing up, growing old, just growing. I really enjoyed reading it. Moving and meaningful for an important occasion., By Edwina Horn (Baltimore, MD USA) I have not had the opportunity to read the entire book - it's a collection of poems and short prose - although I have read a number of selections. Right now I'm on line to order a copy for me, for my sister, and for my granddaughter. My introduction to the book was by my beautiful niece, who read a poem from the book, "A Living Will" by Naomi Halperin, at the funeral of my mother who lived her last year's with Alzheimer's disease. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!! (Thank you, Becky) A must read for women who value substance, By sayrah@inetone.net (WV, USA) This review is from: I Am Becoming the Woman I'Ve Wanted (Hardcover) I've read this book cover to cover several times and have sent it to my daughters and friends as a gift. The last poem in it is truly wonderful, "If Death Were A Woman". Instantly Hooked!, By A Customer A friend of mine frequently quotes Jenny Joseph's "Warning". In searching for this for her birthday, I was instantly hooked on the poems and stories in this book and "When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple". I will be giving these and recommending these to others! Contemporary American Poetry Item Specifics - Textbooks, Education Author: Donald, Ed Hall Format: Binding Unknown ISBN-10: 0140420673 Edition: 2 Edition Description: Revised Product Type: Workbook, Study Guide Educational Level: High School Category: Education, Teaching Publication Year: 1972 Condition: GOOD Length: 280 pages · Contemporary American Poetry: Revised and Expanded Second Edition (Penguin Poets) by Various, Donald Hall (Editor) "TRAVELLING through the dark I found a deer dead on the edge of the road..." · Paperback: 280pages · Publisher: Penguin (Non-Classics); 2nd/Rev edition · Product Dimensions: 7.8 x 5.0 x 0.7 inches · Shipping Weight: 7.2 ounces. This little book contains some 39 American poets, some better known than others. If you're into poetry, and looking for an interesting and brief collection of what was being written in America during the middle-half of the 20th century (and thus, highly influential upon our own) than this Penguin anthology is a great book to own. In his introduction, written in 1961, Donald Hall distinguishes "new" American poetry as being "subjective" rather than "autobiographical". "It reveals through images not particular pain, but general subjective life." The poems of this era (roughly the 1950's early 1960's) are best described as "expressionistic" - they have their own language and feeling best understood and felt if the reader is open to them. Like a painter "...the poet uses fantasy and distortion to express feeling." I like this anthology because it contains a number of American poets I was unfamiliar with and wanted to know. Each poet is represented fairly well, mostly with four or more poems. Stafford, , Wilbur, Bly, Creeley, Ginsberg, Ashbery, Sexton, Wright, Rich, Snyder, and Plath are some of the more well-known names in American poetry you'll find here. But the rest are just as interesting for being less known and "new". Reading these poets all together, one gains a basic idea of what kinds of movements, directions, and experiments were happening in poetry at this time, leading into and influencing ours. A number of lines strike me in a meaningful or thought-provoking way, and I enjoy the way many of these poets make one see and feel in a new and different light. Well worth the time and effort of any knowledgeable poet or poetry lover. STRAIGHT OUT OF VIEW BY JOYCE SUTPHEN-WINNER OF THE 1994 BARNARD NEW WOMEN POETS PRIZE. PAPERBACK. GOOD CONDITION.
