Literature is long. Comics are short. Does Proust get you down? Do you find The Unbearable Lightness of Being simply unbearable? Is The Inferno your own private hell? Do you long to be conversant about classics like Moby Dick, the Bhagavad Gita, Madame Bovary, and, um, Twilight? Bestselling illustrator Lisa Brown (The Airport Book; Baby, Mix Me a Drink) did her homework. Long Story Short offers 100 pithy and skewering three-panel literary summaries, from curriculum classics like Don Quixote, Lord of the Flies, and Jane Eyre to modern favorites like Beloved, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and Atonement, conveniently organized by subjects including “Love,” “Sex,” “Death,” and “Female Trouble.” Lisa Brown’s Long Story Short is the perfect way to turn a traipse through what your English teacher called “the canon” into a frolic—or to happily cram for the next occasion that requires you to appear bookish and well-read.

Transform Your Family with Ten Minutes a Day in the Gospel Story Christian parents know the importance of passing the gospel story on to their children, yet we live in a busy world filled with distractions. Schedules collide, there is homework and yard work and dishes and laundry, the car's oil should be changed, there are phone calls to make and before you know it, everyone is getting to bed late again. The Bible can seem like a long story for an active family to read, but when you break it down into short sections, as Marty Machowski does, family devotions are easy to do. Long Story Short will help busy parents share with their children how every story in the Old Testament points forward to God's story of salvation through Jesus Christ. You won't find a more important focus for a family devotional than a daily highlighting of the gospel of grace. Clever stories and good moral lessons may entertain and even help children, but the gospel will transform children. The gospel is deep enough to keep the oldest and wisest parents learning and growing all their lives, yet simple enough to transform the heart of the first grader who has just begun to read. Ten minutes a day, five days a week is enough time to pass on the most valuable treasure the world has ever known. Long Story Short is a family devotional program designed to explain God's plan of salvation through the Old Testament and is suitable for children from preschool through high school.

"Humans, unlike other living creatures, want to make and look at pictures." So begins the introduction to the jaw-dropping array of photographs in Long Story Short, the latest in Fraenkel Gallery's idiosyncratic surveys of photography since the medium's invention 180 years ago. A surprising and unconventional slice of photography's history, Long Story Shortis also an abbreviated tour of Fraenkel Gallery's approach to photography. Published to mark the gallery's 40th (and still counting) year, this sumptuously designed and printed volume presents work by photography's masters alongside that of little-known artists and anonymous thrift shop finds. Among the images to be discovered here are Eadweard Muybridge's 1887 study of a contortionist performing extreme body movements; Man Ray's 1923 ghostlike rayograph of an irradiated banjo; and a female impersonator applying her lipstick backstage, as seen by Diane Arbus in 1959. Interwoven among these are anonymous photographs of a tornado touching ground near Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, in 1896; astronaut Buzz Aldrin standing beside an American flag on the moon in 1969; and a lawn mower flying inexplicably over a meadow in 1974. Presented in approximate chronological order, the unconventional flow of images conveys a profound sense of photography's infinite riches, and is a meditation on the inexhaustible possibilities of the medium itself.

"Nothing happens in a vacuum." So begins Long Story Short, a collection of one hundred absorbing stories from clinical psychologist Dennis Upper's life. A vivid and thoughtful evocation of personal experiences, the tales in this engaging volume are long and short, funny and sad, trivial and profound. From his first childhood memory to his last day at Yale, and from running the Boston Marathon to dealing with a patient's suicide, these absorbing narratives show how all the brief and important moments in life help us each to develop and grow. The images, sensations, and stories might be unique, but the premise that binds the strands of Upper's life together is the simple love of storytelling. By showing that we are all shaped by our individual life experiences, Long Story Short probes the importance of memories and how writing about them leads to personal growth.

A collection of cartoons, illustrations, and paintings that condense the complicated narratives of famous books into one-page works of art. "A subversive volume that translates a series of complex works of literature into a single-page illustration...A variety of artists rise to a unique literary and visual challenge." --Kirkus Reviews "One of the most fascinating books I have had the pleasure to 'flip through' in the past decade or more!" --Exclusive Magazine "Mr. Fish's chameleon-like versatility makes him the Ween of cartooning. He and his band of accomplices jolt you from one literary world to the next, each illustration like a little puzzle testing your cultural literacy. A short-attention-span joyride." --Jen Sorensen, Herblock Prize–winning cartoonist, the Nib, Daily Kos, and the Nation "Words fail me when I try to explain why Long Story Short is so brilliant, which I guess is the whole point of the book! Why talk over Beethoven (he wouldn't be able to hear you, anyway) or yammer on about poetry when a mute sunset can do it better? Here is art from an incredibly diverse group of cartoonists, painters, and illustrators that speaks for itself on literature's most novel ideas--now shut up and listen!" --Bob Mankoff, former cartoon editor of the New Yorker "Mr. Fish's ingenious collection of cartoon distillations of famous books shows why print editors so fear the art form. These succinct drawings by Fish and his artist collaborators really ARE worth a thousand words, and in Tolstoy's case, many more!" --Signe Wilkinson, Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist, Philadelphia Inquirer and the Daily News The Catcher in the Rye. Lolita. Moby-Dick. Infinite Jest. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. A Room of One's Own. Native Son. These are but a handful of classic works spectacularly distilled by Mr. Fish and a very talented group of painters, illustrators, graphic designers, and political cartoonists into succinct snapshots that are at times funny, sad, inspiring, rude, crude, beautiful, profound, stomach-turning, and mind-blowing. Includes original artwork from: Mr. Fish, Ted Rall, Stephanie McMillan, Sarah Awad, Eli Valley, Wes Tyrell, Tamara Knoss, Keith Henry Brown, Sam Henderson, Lodi Marasescu, Surag Ramachandran, Tami Knight, Eric J. Garcia, Marissa Dougherty, Siri Dokken, John G., Andy Singer, Tara Seibel, Gary Dumm, Clare Kolat, Nate Ulsh, Benjamin Slyngstad, Ron Hill, JP Trostle, John Kovaleski, and Beth McCaskey.
