Out On A Limb

Her most controversial book is one you will never forget. An outspoken thinker, a celebrated actress, a truly independent woman, Shirley MacLaine goes beyond her previous two bestsellers to take us on an intimate yet powerful journey into her personal life and inner self. An intense, clandestine love affair with a prominent politician sparks Shirley MacLaine's quest of self-discovery. From Stockholm to Hawaii to the mountain vastness of Peru, from disbelief to radiant affirmation, she at last discovers the roots of her very existence. . . and the infinite possibilities of life. Shirley MacLaine opens her heart to explore the meaning of a great and enduring passion with her lover Gerry; the mystery of her soul's connection with her best friend David; the tantalizing secrets behind a great actor's inspiration with the late Peter Sellers. And through it all, Shirley MacLaine's courage and candor new doors, new insights, new revelations-and a luminous new world she invites us all to share.

Out On A Limb

Andrew Sullivan—youngest ever editor of The New Republic, founding editor of The Daily Dish, hailed as “one of the most influential journalists of the last three decades” by The New York Times—presents a collection of his most iconic and powerful essays of social and political commentary from The New Republic, The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine, New York magazine, and more. Over the course of his career, Andrew Sullivan has never shied away from staking out bold positions on social and political issues. A fiercely independent conservative, in 1989 he wrote the first national cover story in favor of marriage equality, and then an essay, “The Politics of Homosexuality,” in The New Republic in 1993, an article called the most consequential of the decade in the gay rights movement. A pioneer of online journalism, he started blogging in 2000 and helped define the new medium with his blog, The Daily Dish. In 2007, he was one of the first political writers to champion the presidential campaign of Barack Obama, and his cover story for The Atlantic, “Why Obama Matters,” was seen as a milestone in that campaign’s messaging. In the past five years, he has proved a vocal foe both of Donald Trump and of wokeness on the left. Loved and loathed by both left and right, Sullivan is in a tribe of one. Bold, timely, and thought-provoking, this collection of Sullivan’s greatest arguments on culture, politics, religion, and philosophy demonstrates why he continues to be ranked among the most intriguing and salient figures in US media.

Out On A Limb

This picture book about a child with a broken leg explores the role of courage and patience in the healing process—both inside and out Lulu’s leg is broken, but she’s OK. Bonnie Bear has a matching yellow cast. Her sympathy trove has new books, sweet cards, and pretty daisies. She finds new ways to do ordinary things—like taking a bath or wearing her favorite pants. As time wears on, the newness of the cast wears off and the weariness sets in. Lulu grows bored and grumpy by day. Her cast becomes itchy and twitchy at night. Eventually, it’s time to get the cast off, but Lulu’s not ready. What if her leg can’t do all of the things it used to do? What if it breaks again? A visit from Grandpa, a well-timed letter, and the power of healing help get Lulu back on her feet.

She Went Out On A Limb

She Went Out On A Limb

Sandy blends her sweet and spirited water-colour with her original words of wisdom to create the perfect gift for women. "She went out on a limb, had it break off, and realised she could fly." We've all been there on occasion. We've over reached and achieved success by reaching deep within, rallying, and overcoming life's difficulties and challenges that would keep us from our goals. For every woman who has said, "I can" in place of, "I can't," author and illustrator Sandy Gingras offers inspiration inside She Went Out on a Limb, an illustrated list book of positive and affirming phrases, some original, some quoted. The thoughtful and poetic prose along with original watercolour illustrations combine to focus on the positive and remind you to combat fear and adversity through affirmation in your own beliefs and abilities. The limb may break, but the flight holds exhilarating promise.

Out On A Limb

Out On A Limb

At the age of eight, Louise Baker lost her right leg above the knee as a result of a road accident; she was on her very first bike ride. With a grand sense of humor and great spiritual courage, she faced life with a seemingly irreconcilable handicap. OUT ON A LIMB, her personal story, is not only one of the most stimulating and amusing books; but even more, it will be a revelation to all who have at any time been faced with personal disaster. Louise Baker mastered her tragedy and had a whale of a lot of fun doing it. One moment, she would play the part of a dare-devil female parachute, the next, a fearless alpine skier whose foot had been frozen rescuing a snowbound child—she had to fabricate the most fantastic tales to crush the typical little boy question, “Hey, Lady! Where’s your leg?” She made her very crutches a part of woman’s vanity—using different colors for different ensembles. She did everything a normal woman could do and more: competed with other reporters on a news beat, discovered her own and highly unconventional means of holding her beaux in college, went to live with her new husband in the wilds of Arizona, set out on a hilarious trip to Europe. Whenever the world seemed totally against her, she could console herself with Webster’s definition of “handicap”: “A race...in which an artificial disadvantage is imposed on a superior contestant.” OUT ON A LIMB has a special significance for these times. Louise Baker’s story is told with sympathy and an understanding for all who have suffered similar misfortunes. Her life was not one colored with unhappiness, but filled with energy and purpose—the picture of a woman who enjoyed each day to the fullest.
