These self portraits by some of the most famous authors' in history are fascinating, incredible works of art. Clearly this lot were oozing so much talent they simply couldn't contain it... Being this talented in something other than what you're famous for is simply unfair! #SylviaPlath #HunterSThompson #EdgarAllanPoe #TheBellJar #EECummings #MarkTwain #DHLawrence #AllenGinsberg ...BTW,Please Check this out: http://artcaffeine.imobileappsys.com
Sylvia Plath’s poetic talent should go unquestioned, but as Plath fans will know, she first intended to become a visual artist, and some of her earliest work remained hidden away in the family attic until 1996. In a collection of Plath’s work entitled Eye Rhymes: Sylvia Plath’s Art of the Visual, which features sketches, photographs, and portraits—such as this brooding 1951 self-portrait—that represent Plath’s work while an art student at Smith College.
Sylvia Plath self portrait. I find this very revealing.

"She'd written, 'Up, down, same thing.' And then later when they were at the beach, Jiko said those exact same words … 'up, down, same thing.' I had that dream over a week before I read about the beach, so how did I know that?" -- from "A Tale For The Time Being: a novel" by Ruth Ozeki (p. 230)
A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki This gorgeous and intricate novel tells the story of a novelist living in the Pacific Northwest who discovers a teenaged Japanese girl's diary that has washed ashore. The story moves back and forth between the two narratives, and it's easy to imagine a small-screen adaptation that slowly unravels the mystery of the girl who penned the diary.
A brilliant, unforgettable, and long-awaited novel from bestselling author Ruth Ozeki. Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. A brilliant, unforgettable, and long-awaited novel from bestselling author Ozeki. In Tokyo, 16-year-old Nao has decided there's only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates' bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great-grandmother, a Buddhist nun who's lived more than a century.
(Lauren) A Tale for the Time Being / Ruth Ozeki / Just finished this fantastic novel. Highly recommend to any fan of Murakami, philosophy, botanists, or amateur sleuths.
Book #40 was A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. This is a philosophical novel, a coming-of-age novel, a mystery novel sprinkled with a dash of magic realism. It’s about a japanese girl and a woman in British Columbia who is drawn into the story after discovering the girl’s diary. This book covers so much ground, but never loses its focus. It covers bullying, child prostitution, depression, suicide, and more. The story manages to be heart breaking and optimistic at the same time. Read it!

One of the first novels of the Beat movement of the 1950s, 'On the Road,' by Jack Kerouac, was published on this day (9-5) in 1957—56 years ago. What a HUGE book from the collection of Beat authors this one was.
